System Path and Transaction Code Mapping for SAP

Posted by leavewithsmile on May 27, 2010

This post is a courtesy from Saleem in here.

When I know the System Path in the menu bar, I can find out the transaction code through System –> Status in menu bar. However, it seems no way to vice versa, it’s that correct?? That means, if I have a transaction code, can we know the System Path in the menu bar?

“To find out the Easy Access Menu path of a particular transaction or screen, you can use the following method:

– Go to Transaction “Search_SAP_menu” by entering this in on the transaction slot at the upper left hand corner
of the screen. You may need to click on a faded right pointing arrow to see this slot. Also you may need to proceed the “Search_SAP_menu” with /n.

– In the dialog box that then shows up, enter the name of the screen you want to get to (i.e. the name that appears at the top of the screen (e.g. Create inspection lot on t- code qqr5) OR enter the transaction code.

– The result will be a report showing all of the Easy Access Menu paths to your transaction. Note that you may find different paths using the t-code than using the screen title.”

When I type transaction code /nsearch_sap_menu, I will see “dynamic menu” button. After I click that button, i will see the tree
structures of the system path and I am able to expand on the path and find out the transaction code.

However, is there another way to find the system path by just entering the transaction code, and it will display the tree system
path automatically??

In R/3 4.6C – when I use Tx search_sap_menu – I don’t get any buttons.  All I get is a small pop-up box with a single line,
titled “Enter transaction code or menu text”, where a string can be entered.  When text is entered, and ‘enter’ is pressed, it returns a screen where there are blocks listed that show the menu paths.  As an example, if I enter SM37 in the text box and hit enter, this is the top few lines that are returned:

Node               Transaction code    Text

Nodes              SM37                Job Overview
Preceding node                         Mass Processing
Preceding node                         Planning
Preceding node                         Flexible planning
Preceding node                         Planning
Preceding node                         Sales Information System
Preceding node                         Sales and Distribution
Preceding node                         Logistics

Nodes              SM37                Logs
Preceding node                         Queue
Preceding node                         R/2-R/3 Link
Preceding node                         Internal Whse Processes
Preceding node                         Logistics Execution
Preceding node                         Logistics

Nodes              SM37                Job Overview
Preceding node                         Mass Processing
Preceding node                         Planning
Preceding node                         SOP
Preceding node                         Production
Preceding node                         Logistics

To run the SSM_SEME program you can use the Tcode SE38. Enter SSM_SEME in the text field and hit F8 to execute. You’ll then get a popup where you type in what you want to search for.

To check versions of SAP, OS and DB you can do the following:
1. Log on to SAP
2. Click “System” in the menu line and choose “Status”
Then you’ll get the info you need.
This is also a good way to find out which transaction code you are currently using.

For more details click the button with the yellow arrow in the bottom of that screen.
