Table maintenance 2.02

This release corrects some minor bugs and the nugget file is better sorted to allow upload for new installs easier. There is still a bug in our SAPLINK, which requires two loads before all objects can be correctly loaded on a new system. Just execute SAPLINK twice and all object should go in for activation. If you find problems, let me know.

Table maintenance 2.00

Final I was able to finish the next version of the table maintenance transaction ZSY666. Beside that some bugs have been corrected and the error handling is further improved, I have added also some nice features.

  • The new version allows massive update of selected columns or fields. This gives you the possibility beyond just copy and past to correct table data.
  • Now you can remote connect to a different system and read data from the same table, but remote system. It will show you a comparison and than allows you to update the local system based on remote data ( similar as SM31 supports).

To proper install the code you will need the latest daily build for saplink. Please also compare the plugins. There was an issue with the function group plugin. It got fixed and you will need it.


Over the last month I have started contributing to a very interesting project I found on code.sdn.sap.com. This project has the goal to create excel files directly with abap code. There is no office integration needed through the GUI and files can be created therefore even in the background. A lot of effort has been already but in the first versions of this great idea. In the moment version 7 is in the works and version 6 has been released beginning of this year. There is a lot of work pending, but it is already very much usable and has already a big fan base (more than 300).

I can only recommend to have a look and try it out. Here you can find more info ABAP2XLSX.


Text Object 2.00

Over the last years many have downloaded the existing version 1.01 of the TextObject. As the TextObject has evolved over the last 2 years, here is the latest version of it. Many bugs have been resolved and the following functionality has been added:

  • Spellchecker with context menu based on MS Office
  • Insert of standard text with context menu
  • Dialog textbox allows full text display (for example to be used for hotspot click in ALV-grids ( cl_salv_table ) ).
  • Several format options can be chosen to get text formated returned
  • Simplified interface for text definiton

You can download the code from my downloads page.



Text object

I have developed at my company Instrumentation Laboratory a textobject to solve the problem of tracking changes for text maintenance. This idea has evolved into an interface for text maintenance and several other possibilities including HTML maintenance, full text search and an interface into SAP standard text maintenance.

So here is now my first version of the text object. All the code is based on nuggets with SAPlink. If you want to get more information please checkout the following article: Tex-Editing with Notes – Logic.

To be able to make use of the code you first need to download and install SAPlink on your system. You can either go to Saplink or down load everything from my downloads page.

Let me know what you think.
