Simple SE38 Emulator using Microsoft Excel

Recently Alvaro posted a very nice blog explaining the PHP based The specified item was not found.. I was very much impressed seeing that. I too had the same thoughts, and one of my all times favorites is the Try-It-Yourself that I used when I learnt the HTML.

Having such an emulator for simple ABAP reports is cool. Thanks to Alvaro for sharing this example which helped me to find this RFC_ABAP_INSTALL_AND_RUN function module.

Here is one more using every one’s favorite Microsoft Excel.

  • Hi Kathir:

    Thanx for your nice comments -;) I’m just a developer trying to make some nice stuff…But you really blow my mind! SE38 Excel Emulator?! You really deserved all the applauses -:D

    Great job man…Very impressive…



  • Hi Kathirvel,

    it seems to be a good idea, but doesn’t work with all versions of xl. My version 2003 reports an error in the line with
    “Dim objProgram, objWrites As Table”.
    What xl-version are you using?

    Greetings Martin

  • Hi, is posible using directy Excel file or MS Project send data to Z tabla via RFC ?

    I need send from Excel or MS Project to Z Table.

    Any idea ?

    Thank you.

    • I have tried with Excel and it worked fine. A couple of blogs on material upload is already there in SDN,


      You can adopt similar logic for your Z tables.
