Screen Exits

Screen exits add fields to screens in R/3 applications. SAP creates screen exits by placing special sub screen areas on a standard R/3 screen and calling a customer sub screen from the standard screen’s flow logic.

Use the project management transaction (CMOD) to edit subscreens. The technical names of screen exits consist of the name of the calling program, a four-digit screen number, and the name of the subscreen area, followed by the name of the X function group's program and the number of the subscreen.

You create subscreens and their corresponding PBO and PAI modules yourself using forward navigation.

Make sure that your subscreens are of screen type subscreen the first time you create them. You are not allow to alter any of the interfaces in the X function group that the subscreen and the function module exits belong to, nor are you allowed to add any of your own function modules.

we can use this

Field Exits – It is triggered at field level.

It is attached at data element

Specific to one screen only or to all the screen where field appears.

Field exit is not allowed in SAP version 4.7 and above .

You can use BADI's instead of screen exits

u can find BADI's in different ways...

1>First go to any transaction->iN THE menu bar SYSTEM->STATUS->Get the program name ->double click->u will go to the program attached to the tcode.Now search term will be CALL CL_EXITHANDLER.Now u will get list of BADI'S available..

2>Goto SE24->Give class name as CL_EXITHANDLER->Display->double click on get_instance mathod->Now u will go inside the method->Now put break point on the cl_exithandler.Now go to any transaction code and pass dat..U will see that it will be stopped on the break point which u set on the cl_exithandler...In the exit name u can find list of badi's attached to the tcode..

There are multiple ways of searching for BADI.


• Finding BADI Using SQL Trace (TCODE-ST05).

• Finding BADI Using Repository Information System (TCODE- SE84).

1. Go to the Transaction, for which we want to find the BADI, take the example of Transaction VD02. Click on System->Status. Double click on the program name. Once inside the program search for ‘CL_EXITHANDLER=>GET_INSTANCE’.

Make sure the radio button “In main program” is checked. A list of all the programs with call to the BADI’s will be listed.

The export parameter ‘EXIT_NAME’ for the method GET_INSTANCE of class CL_EXITHANDLER will have the user exit assigned to it. The changing parameter ‘INSTANCE’ will have the interface assigned to it. Double click on the method to enter the source code.Definition of Instance would give you the Interface name.

2. Start transaction ST05 (Performance Analysis).

Set flag field "Buffer trace"

Remark: We need to trace also the buffer calls, because BADI database tables are buffered. (Especially view V_EXT_IMP and V_EXT_ACT)

Push the button "Activate Trace". Start transaction VA02 in a new GUI session. Go back to the Performance trace session.

Push the button "Deactivate Trace".

Push the button "Display Trace".

The popup screen "Set Restrictions for Displaying Trace" appears.

Now, filter the trace on Objects:



Push button "Multiple selections" button behind field Objects


All the interface class names of view V_EXT_IMP start with IF_EX_. This is the standard SAP prefix for BADI class interfaces. The BADI name is after the IF_EX_.


3. Go to “Maintain Transaction” (TCODE- SE93).

Enter the Transaction VD02 for which you want to find BADI.

Click on the Display push buttons.

Get the Package Name. (Package VS in this case)

Go to TCode: SE84->Enhancements->Business Add-inns->Definition

Enter the Package Name and Execute.

Here you get a list of all the Enhancement BADI’s for the given package MB.

The simplese way for finding BADI is

1. chooes Tcode Program & package for that Tcode.

2. Go to Tcode se18

3. Press F4

4. search by package or by program.

Difference Between BADI and User Exits

Business Add-Ins are a new SAP enhancement technique based on ABAP Objects. They can be inserted into the SAP System to accommodate user requirements too specific to be included in the standard delivery. Since specific industries often require special functions, SAP allows you to predefine these points in your software.

As with customer exits two different views are available:

In the definition view, an application programmer predefines exit points in a source that allow specific industry sectors, partners, and customers to attach additional software to standard SAP source code without having to modify the original object.

In the implementation view, the users of Business Add-Ins can customize the logic they need or use a standard logic if one is available.

In contrast to customer exits, Business Add-Ins no longer assume a two-level infrastructure (SAP and customer solutions), but instead allow for a multi-level system landscape (SAP, partner, and customer solutions, as well as country versions, industry solutions, and the like). Definitions and implementations of Business Add-Ins can be created at each level within such a system infrastructure.

SAP guarantees the upward compatibility of all Business Add-In interfaces. Release upgrades do not affect enhancement calls from within the standard software nor do they affect the validity of call interfaces. You do not have to register Business Add-Ins in SSCR.

The Business Add-In enhancement technique differentiates between enhancements that can only be implemented once and enhancements that can be used actively by any number of customers at the same time. In addition, Business Add-Ins can be defined according to filter values. This allows you to control add-in implementation and make it dependent on specific criteria (on a specific Country value, for example).

All ABAP sources, screens, GUIs, and table interfaces created using this enhancement technique are defined in a manner that allows customers to include their own enhancements in the standard. A single Business Add-In contains all of the interfaces necessary to implement a specific task.

The actual program code is enhanced using ABAP Objects. In order to better understand the programming techniques behind the Business Add-In enhancement concept, SAP recommends reading the section on ABAP Objects.

What is difference between badi and user-exists?

What is difference between enhancements and user-exists? and what is the full form of BADI?

I have another doubt in BDC IN BDC WE HAVE MSEGCALL (i did not remember the > correct name) where the error logs are stored, MSEGCALL is a table or structure.

What is the system landscape?

1) Difference between BADI and USER-EXIT.

i) BADI's can be used any number of times, where as USER-EXITS can be used only one time.

Ex:- if your assigning a USER-EXIT to a project in (CMOD), then you can not assign the same to other project.

ii) BADI's are oops based.

2) About 'BDCMSGCOLL' it is a structure. Used for finding error records.

3) Full form of BADI 'Business addins'.

3) System land scape will be depends on your project

Ex:- 'Development server'>'Quality server'-> 'Production server'......
