It is a compilation of notes, tips, and tricks I have learned in various implementations while on assignment in over 17 countries. After completing these projects I found myself with a whole spectrum of knowledge, gleaned from day-to-day investigations and tasks as well as from the wonderful individuals I have had the pleasure of working with.

I hope you will find this book to be a valuable source of trustworthy advice given in an easy-to-access format with direct answers.
Instead of having to read ten pages to obtain one point, my desire is that you find ten points in one page. This book is not a remake nor a copy of the help files SAP offers, nor is it in any way directed or controlled by SAP. Nor does it intend to replace SAP training. In this book we have developed a few guidelines that will offer instant understanding and promote ease of use.
The actual transaction code to be used in this case is SPRO without the brackets. I have only identified them in brackets to quickly identify them as transaction codes and to differentiate them from tables. These tips and tricks are fantastic time savers, and have been gathered the hard way. Be sure to make the most of them. A big thank you to my family for their encouragement.

And finally, to my Lord Jesus, thank you We will introduce the new SAP terminologies and how the products are related. We then begin with basic data, such as how SAP functions and where it accesses the information in the system. We will go through the different versions and structures of master data—material, customer, organizational, and all related data, followed by covering the Enterprise Structure, resulting in a clear picture of how the data is inter-related.
With over 30 years of experience and being utilized in over 25 industries and approximately 34, companies, it is estimated that SAP has approximately million users in more than countries around the world.
With such an impressive history it is not surprising that today SAP offers a wide range of solutions, products, and applications. Of these applications we are focusing on the Sales and Distribution application. These customized applications can be used in conjunction with powerful, already existing applications of Netweaver to integrate with mySAP ERP, creating solutions ranging, for example, from seamless integration with Microsoft Office to customer- or supplier-facing web portals.
SAP provides rich functionality in each of these business areas without sacrificing the convenience of an integrated system.
These applications update and process transactions in real time, allowing seemingly effortless integration and communication between areas of a business. For example, you can create a billing document and release it to Accounting and observe the updated billing values in a customer analysis immediately, without having to wait for day-end or month-end processing.
The appearance of the screens and the menus displayed on them are configurable. For example, the basic SAP screen looks similar to Figure This screen will be referred to as the SAP menu. It is often obtainable by using transaction code [S]. This is possible through the use of a web portal as seen in Figure Customizing Tools The cornerstone to SAP is the ability to configure the system to meet the needs of your business.
This is done by customizing or adapting the system and application to respond like your business. This is the process of mapping SAP to your business processes.
An example of a business process would be capturing a customer sales order. This process of configuring SAP is generally time consuming and costly, as one needs to fully understand the business processes and then find a solution in SAP to meet these requirements and customize it in the system while at the same time taking into account best business practices, international standards, and possibly a bit of business re-engineering.
The objective of this book is to teach you how to develop and enhance the Sales and Distribution module of mySAP ERP to its fullest potential, using time-saving tips and techniques, in order for you to effectively meet your business objectives. Prior to version 3 of SAP, customizing of the system had to be carried out via menu paths and transaction codes, requiring considerably more time. We will be using this screen extensively for the purpose of configuring the Sales and Distribution module.
Of these three functional areas, there is a further subdivision into applications or modules. These tools are not dedicated to one unique application or module; they are used throughout the system to integrate and automate SAP processes.
The following is a brief description and overview of a few of the major functional areas in SAP. This core functional area is country-specific, due to country-related taxes, employee benefits, and employment laws. Refer to www. It has always been one of the largest and most complex modules in SAP.
SAP Basics This section is a guide to navigation and usability of an SAP system from transaction codes to user settings and the matrix copy. For example, the transaction code [VA22] brings you to the Change Quotation screen, as shown in Figure To view the transaction code from within the screen you are accessing, select System Status.
To revert back to the original user menu from this screen, simply select the menu path Menu SAP menu [transaction code S]. Please refer to Chapter 5 to read about creating your own transaction codes. For example, all transactions related to sales master data may be found by using [VS00]. Refer to the following list for transaction codes to further menus. Naturally, there are thousands of such codes and it would be irrelevant to list them all.
You can also use asterisks as wildcards. You will not be able to use the transaction code [VA00] while in the SAP Customizing Implementation Guide because the screen related to [VA00] is not available from within this transaction. This opens the transaction in a new SAP session, keeping your existing screen in place. Shortcuts in Transaction Codes To save time in transferring between screens when you call up a transaction, you can utilize the shortcut commands in Table The following function keys allow for additional shortcuts: F1 Help F3 Back F4 Lists possible entries or matchcode see next section for the field you are accessing F8 Executes a transaction or report These function codes are to be used from a specific field—for example, from the customer group field.
Pressing F1 gives you the Help screen, as shown in Figure The Help dialog box may be displayed differently based upon the user settings. Note, however, that you are terminating the current screen and will lose any unsaved data. Matchcode A matchcode is a comparison key.
