You can search for Support packs at

Compare with your current support pack level and download the relevant ones.

for example, on our 4.6C the level is 0042.

So i have to download the 43, 44...52 support packages?

Then unpack all of them on a temp /usr/sap/trans.

After this, SPAM e i put all of them in queque?

I have a dubt, becasuse i remember that i must read all of the oss note about the SP, because some times, the update can be dangerous.

can anyone explain me better?

thank a lot, always

For eg. for 4.6C you have upto 52 in BASIS ,ABAP,and cross application components.

you download 43..44..52 and using SPAM you can upload from front end or you can uncar them on the App.server.

However, during the course of implementing patches, during the SPDD and SPAU phase system gives the option to retain the changes that are made to standard programs / objects / tables etc or to reset the objects to SAP standard objects. It is during these changes only that the functional consultant has to study the program/changes which are done and the impact of the changes.So when you come through this SPDD or SPAU phase you have to make sure from your ABAPers and functional consultants regarding whether to reset all to original or retain the changes.This is crucial otherwise you will impair your business unknowingly.

Click on the info button beside the support pack name and see the dependencies.

The order of applying patches will be BASIS,ABAP,Cross application components,HR etc...

And finally it's not the case that we should go for applying a support pack because it's available at SAP market place.
