SAP Screen Terminology

Long time ago I have seen a slide in a presentation to explain different terminlogies used on SAP screen. I immensely liked it. I dont remember who has done it or where I saw it, so cant give credit to the one who got this idea but can extend my thanks to him/her. I have made similar one because I often see end users find some of the terminlogy used by SAP consultants are bit difficult espcially when the support is given over phone. Hence I started adding the below slide in some of my training documents during projects or support manuals so that users could understand what I am saying or/and get used to the terminlogy quickly. Hope it helps someone just like it did to me.

The below screen has been made by adding screenshots from different SAP screens.

      that one is from SE38, you could see/change the source code of a pogram by choosing it.

      Good idea sap sats. 🙂

      However, i was wondering if you could do a similar thing for when ALVs are displayed (possibly 2 on a screen) and then display which is the header area & footer area. This can be very helpful while gathering requirements.

      Thanks,

      Uk
