      Very neat.

      How does it work with, say, transaction XK01/02, which should lead to the Vendor Master Business Object?

      Hi Arghadip,

      Thanks for the post.

      i've a question here. As you mentioned "Generic Object Service or Service for Object  icon enabled " in this post.

      My question here's : How do i get a business Object which doesn't have above feature.

      lets take an instance, few Industry Specific modules in SAP doesn't have direct BO's and they don't have the above feature (GOS OR SFOI), in that case, its very difficult to find out a BO to develop a WF . Any tips how to find BO in that Case.

      i tried SWELS-ON & OFF & then tried to figure out the BO in SWEL Transaction. But for few Transactions, the BO itself not getting triggered there.

      i saw your post, so thought i'll get an answer if i post this question to you.

      Please let me know if you've faced this kind of situation, in that case, how did you acheived?
