  • Ragav,

    Thanks a lot for this post. It was very helpful..!

    For PO we know that BOR is BUS2012. So we can search for it directly in SWEC and attach our custom event by copying it.

    In cases where we are not sure about the correct BOR to which we should attach our change document event, can you please tell me how can we find it.



    • Hi Aspire,

      There is no direct answer for your question.

      Change Document object is defined from the standard SAP.So if you try to find related Object to your application you can find by F4 help.Search relevant description.

      (Its same like Enhancement search thru F4 help)

        • Hi,

          Parameter is passing depends on the event.Your linkage is not correct that’s why it might not triggered.

          Because for same standard event is working right ?
