Tip: Restart Transaction Code SE80 After Changing a Business Object

Sometimes simple things can be confusing:

I work with two SAP GUI for Windows sessions parallel. On the one hand TAC SE80 with a report and on the other hand TAC BOBF with a BO, especially a query. I add a filter structure, save and activate the BO. Now I switch to the report and want to continue my coding – but the code completion ignores my changes in BO, it doesn’t offer my query. After a while I found out, that is necessary to restart the TAC SE80 – then the code completion works perfect.

  • Hello Stefan,

    you are absolutely right - this can be a pitfall.

    But you do not need to restart the development workbench to update code completion information. There is a menu item which does just that: When you are in the code editor, choose in the menu: Utilities -> More Utilities 😉 -> Code Completion -> Update Cache.

    (When working with ABAP in Eclipse, I think F5 does the trick.)

    Kind Regards,
