I just stumbled upon the blog Got an error message? The new tool PANKS is here to help you! (from 2014), again I thought instead of posting a longer comment, I might as well write a short blog on my first experience.
I didn’t know that functionality, in fact I have to admit that I didn’t pay any attention on the different buttons given in the “Performance Assistant”-window in the past.
-> To me, it is (or at least was) only the “Display Long Text of a Message”-Window.
In fact, I just now realize that I do call up the Performance Assistant on two occasions regularly:
- Display long text of a message
- F1-Help (in that case, I often do use one of the Buttons: “Technical Information”)
Well back to my try in using PANKS (“Performance Assistant Note and KBAS Search”):
When I read about it, I immediately had a error-message and a corresponding SAP note in mind to try it out:
The situation is: trying to do LT0G on a HU-managed storage location
-> you get the Message L3 794 saying “Function not yet supported for TOs for HUs” (a small hint on the word “yet” -> it never will be! )
The solution is described in Note 1613959 (https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/1613959)
So, for the first time I payed attention to the buttons and clicked on the this one:
Unfortunately, contrary to my expectation, it didn’t find anything: 🙁
That’s especially strange as the note even has the message number on its title “Error L3 794 in transaction LT0G”
I guess it’s one of the examples where the quote “some adjustments to the SAP Notes and KBAS might be needed to get the best results.” from the above mentioned blog applies.
So PANKS and me had a bad start, nevertheless I’ll remember clicking that button next time I get an error-message.
Do you pay attention to any of those buttons? Did you know and do you use PANKS? Share, if you like!
