Cool Sessions at Community Day Las Vegas

Anyone interested in the following session: Non-OOP ABAP programming – “Old ABAP” – Discussion on tips and tricks used for existing programs. Join us at the SDN Day track of the Community Day in Las Vegas. The session is hosted by your fellow SDNer Michelle Crapo from Perrigo. 

This session came to be because Michelle posted a comment to the SDN Day wiki page asking whether this kind of content is welcomed at the SDN Day.


What we strive for at the Community Day is to bring top contributors together that often only know each other from online posts. Bring them together around themes that interest you, around problems that you may wrestle with every day. It is great to come together with fellow SDNers or BPXers and exchange solutions found by folks like you, people that are at the frontline of developing or implementing SAP Solutions.


Therefore Michelle’s suggestion hits the mark and is something that you will not get in the regular SAP TechEd program. Michelle has accepted to host this session. Here is its detailed description:

Gradually companies are moving to ECC and using OOP, new UI, and all the NetWeaver tools.  It’s just taking time.  This session would be an open discussion of tips ‘n tricks using Non-OOP ABAP and OOP if you have any.

 Do you have any tips you use?  Bring them along.  

I’m bringing my tips with me to share.  Please feel free to add to the list.  Just edit this page and add them to the list.   

Here’s some examples:

  • A Z* table used like a configuration table for custom code
  • Table logging and change documents
  • Search Helps


Check out the SDN Day wiki page, as there is much more happening and changing daily. While I was writing this post David Halitsky added another session around Bioinformatics. If you want to be part of all the cool things, sign up for the SDN Day.

      I do a (no-point) blog on what I'd like to do at the SDN Day Session.  It's kind of a different concept - I'm asking folks with all kinds of different expertise to come and atually help blueprint a WDA app that would: 1) show the SAP community what kind of commercial potential there is in the bioinformatics sector for SAP; and 2) how the structure of bioinformatic data is very similar to the structure of SupplyChainManagement data.

      The Community Day is exactly that kind of place where a different kind of concept is embraced. As organizer I often don't have the chance to participate, but this one is for sure high on the list of sessions I would like to go to.
      See you there, Mark.

      Thanks again, Mark.

      But I want to be sure of something.

      Aslan has said that folks with upcoming sesssions SHOULD blog about them to let folks know what they can expect.

      I want to be sure that if I do that (post a "no-points" Ranting blog about my session), then no one will get on my case for posting a "fluff" blog.

      Please confirm whether it's ok to blog about an upcoming session, or whether Aslan meant something else.

      ... may be I should write a blog about, is: Later in the TechEd week someone tells me: Man, I heard about all the great things you did at Community Day. If only I would have known. I soooo would have been there. I am bummed that I missed it.

      That is just super frustrating to hear and this is why your blog post about your Community Day session is very welcomed, try to make it educational or interesting for folks that can't go to it too.

      Thanks, Mark.
