Use of EWK1 Transaction Code in ABAP

Introduction :

After seeing a Lot of questions on Identifying custom Driver Program of smartforms and finding the exact adobe forms in abap.

Here I would like to give a simple and easy method to Identify a driver program of smartform as well as how to use EWK1.

Many people was not aware of EWK1 concept as they wish to succeed in Debugging as well as where used list.

Also if your name presents in program means, that also you can easily find by thing t-code.

for example inside of program , you have maintained your name like (Developer : Bastin) that also if you give in EWK1 search it will directly point out that program 🙂

Real Time Scenario Example 1 :

How to find the customize driver program name for the corresponding smartform

There is one easiest way to identify the Smartform’s custom driver program in a simple way

Using the Transactional Code EWK1.

Step 1  :  goto -> EWK1 Tcode

Step 2 :  type your customized smartform name (assume that you don’t know about corresponding driver program of that smartform) . see the below screen shot for your reference .


Step 3: once you typed relevant customized smartform name then press find ie) press enter.


Step 4: it will directly navigate to another window, there you can easily find the relevant driver program for the corresponding smartforms .

Real time Scenario Example 2:
