PPM – Finding tables/BAPIs SAP component/Sub-component wise
Portfolio and Project Management (PPM) has mainly 3 components –
1) Collaboration Folders (cFolders)
2) Project Management (Previously called as cProjects)
3) Portfolio Management (Previously called as xRPM)
If we are in the process of carrying out custom developments/enhancements, then information like SAP tables, BAPI’s & BAdIs becomes vital.
Many of us find tables using the known terms such DPR*, cgpl* etc. In the process we may miss out many tables. So it is always better to know complete list of tables in a structured manner. By standard SAP delivers this information but many of us tend to miss this info. So thought of sharing this..
General thumb rule could be to find out the tables using SAP delivered Tables–>SAP components linkage. Here most of the tables are available in a more easier form grouped with components and sub-components. Just you need to go to tcode-SE16 and use F4 option to get the below options as shown in the picture and then click in ‘SAP Applications’ to view all the standards SAP components.
Further drill down on component to get the sub-components and tables (in this case PPM is used) as shown in the below screenshot.
Collaboration Folders (cFolders) tables can be found in the below component structure.
Complete table list of cFolders is also available in the below link – http://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/PLM/Standard+table-+cFolders
BAPI’s list are also available component/sub-component wise similar to tables. Just you need to go to tcode-SE37 and use F4 options–>SAP Applications.
For BAdI’s, we may not get the list like above, but SAP is delivering the list through SAP Notes. All PPM related BAdIs are available in the below SAP note.
Hope this is useful to all and leaving this document for open collaboration, so that further more contents can be added by other community members.
