Topic: Enhancing transaction
Enhancement type: Screen enhancement
I will use the following transaction and screen for making the concept a bit more palatable.
Screen number: 6000
Standard program: SAPLMR1M
Enhancing transactions are somethings that we do as a regular ABAP-er as apart of our daily job. You might be wondering what would be the justification to create a document for enhancing MIRO.
The fun part is that there are no screen exits or BADis for this particular transaction screen (6000). There is no conventional way to add a button in the standard MIRO screen without making a copy of the standard program. That seems a daunting task.
There are two possible approaches for this:
1. Create a Z-Copy of the program SAPLMR1M
2. Enhance the standard program by using enhancement spots (fortunately SAPLMR1M doesn’t lack in Enhancement spots )
I would discuss approach two here.
This involves a considerable amount of debugging and using standard function modules.
That seems logical on making modifications for the standard as SAP follows the same. Under a layer of module pool programming all that is there for encapsulation are standard Function modules.
It also involves grasping of the concept about PF-status of screens.
Whenever SAP displays a screen there is a PF-status which determines the buttons present in the screen.
It also determines whether the buttons will be active or disabled.
The PF-status can be modified without making any other changes in the program except for writing the command “SET PF-STATUS..”.
The PF-status thus set is retained while displaying the screen.
In other words, when you set PF status the affected screen is the one which is displayed next.
The whole enhancement of including buttons lies on this single concept and it is very important that you grasp it.
The next are all easy.
I will highlight the steps.
Step 1: We find the PBO of the screen we need to enhance. For my specific case it was screen 6000 of program SAPLMR1M.
Step 2: In PBO we find a suitable spot where we can set the PF-status according to our requirement. This should be a spot where the PF-status of the standard is already set. (Yes, we overwrite the PF-status of the standard with our own and it works ). I overwrote the PF-Status using a Z-FM which I developed for this purpose. I will attach it for your reference. Also there are some buttons that are excluded in the standard. You need to take care of it using the exclusion table which SAP standard uses for this purpose. The code example will show you an example. Also an image below.
Step 3: We create a enhancement implementation in PBO where we set the PF-status to our Z-PF-status. I made a copy of the standard PF-status and enhanced it to include a custom button. The PF-status must be in the same package as the Z-FM used to set it. Please check the screenshot of the Z-FM and you will get the idea. See left hand side GUI status.
Step 4: We call the FM from the enhancement spot created and voila, the button is here .
Wait a minute, the button is here but it doesn’t work . What’s the use of a button for show? Which brings us to:
Step 5: Enhance the PAI of the program to include various mumbo-jumbo that will happen when we press the glorified button. Now, for this, one shot of debugging is enough. This will show you the spot where you need to place your own code for handling the OK-code of the custom button.
I will attach screenshots of spots where I enhanced to give you the general idea.
I will not go into specifics of the code as long as you get the general idea. Nevertheless, I will exemplify codes which you may refer.
Thanks for reading.
