Standard Constants

The other day a developer has shown me how to find standard constants that have been created as attributes of global interfaces.

I found that helpfull since sometimes we need to use those constands and because we dont find them, we create a new global constant in a new interface.

In the following example, I will show how to find the class and the attribute of constant ‘BUS2200’, that in SRM is BID Bussines Object.

In transaction SE16, search table VSEOATTRIB with field ATTVALUE = ‘BUS2200’

Then you will see all the the classes and attributes that have that value..

You could do something similar to find the class of a method.

Table VSEOMETHOD field CMPNAME.

Don´t hesitate to contact me for further clarifications…..

Regards,

Lisandro

      Hi Lisandro,

      You can achieve the same results and in a more user friendly interface with transaction SE84 ("Repository Information System").

      Under "class library" you can search for "methods" and/or "attributes".

      Hope it helps.

      Cheers,

      André

      Hi André,

      Thanks for the input.

      What you cannot achieve in that transaction is value search: I didnt find how to know the class and attribute of a constant value....

      For attributes/constant search you have additional options, like Initial Value search if you click on "all selections" button on the toolbar (the button with a + sign) or press Shift+F9.

      André.

      Thanks for the advice.

      I definitely will use that transaction.
