As of SAP release 6.20, work area is defaulted to “global”.
The work area can be changed as follows:
1) If you as a user prefer to be in Standard mode the entire time, you might set this permanently.
System->User profile->Own data->Parameter
Enter parameter AQW=’ ‘, ie. blank as value to be in Standard area or
enter parameter AQW=’G’to be in Global area
or temporary using SQ01->Environment->Query areas
2) If you prefer to work in Global area, you may after converting the QuickViews to Standard queries, copy these to the Global area, using
report RSAQR3TR or the transport tools in SQ02/SQ03.
