Did you ever find you wanted to debug something in SAP GUI right on a certain command or action, but it was in a popup? You can’t access the command line to enter
\h! Well, now you can with this amazing SAP shortcut!
Open any text editor and add the following:
[System] Name=ERP Description=My company's super awesome ERP system name Client=100 [User] Name=CHRIS_IS_AWESOME Language=EN [Function] Title=Debugging Command=/h Type=SystemCommand [Configuration] WorkDir=\\SomePath\To_a_working_directory [Options] Reuse=0
Note that the
WorkDir should all be set to your specific setup. (That’s why I’ve put obvious bogus names for each of them 😄 ).
I keep a copy of mine on my desktop and in my documents directory, as
debugging.sap, so it’s always close at hand.
Whenever you need to debug something running from a popup, just drag and drop this shortcut into the window you want to debug! (either pressing enter in a field or pressing a button to continue the process in the GUI.)
*** Common gotchya: Things like pressing F4 or clicking the entry help button on any fields will also bring up the debugger after you have dragged and dropped this GUI shortcut - so, make sure you press the button/do the action of exactly what you want to debug!
