Hi,

sometimes I see by SM04 that there are user connected to the SAP system and

the told me that they've stopped the session by CTRlALTCANC 'cause the computer

was locked by some other software running.

How can they reconnect to the same session so that they start directly from the screen they were

working instead of restart a new session and enter again the data ?

Best regards

Hello,

I think this used to be possible in earlier versions of SAP. It would be interesting to know if someone posts here.

Earlier in SAP 4.0B, this was possible by an option called Take Over Session:

If a problem occurs in a useru2019s front-end server (PC or workstation), the user can

sometimes lose access to his or her session in the R/3 System. The useru2019s SAPGUI

front-end program has stopped running, but the useru2019s session is still active in the R/3

System.

If this problem occurs, a user can resume working in a lost session by u201Ctaking overu201D

the session. When a user takes over a session, he or she resumes working in the

session as though the front-end problem had never occurred.

A user can take over a session when he or she logs on to the R/3 System again. To

do this, type in your user ID and password and then select User->Take Over Session

rather than simply pressing ENTER. Or a user can take over a session in the User

overview with Process -> Take Over Session.

Hi,

I agree with you 'cause I remember that in the earlier release it was possible.

I remember that a customer had a 4.0B and the above was possible but don't understand

why this function is no more possible....

No idea i don't know why it vanished all of a sudden.

Maybe if SAP guys read this post, it might spark of a discussion.

Can you raise a seperate thread in the Coffe Corner forum. SAP Guys generally reply there pretty quickly.
