How to make Error message appear as Pop Up without ABAP Coding? Really


After working with SAP for more than 15 years and travelling across the Globe for SAP Projects one requirement I always use to get is to design a POP UP for a Custom Error SAP message. I was tired doing this until I figured out you can do this without any ABAP Coding and for every ERROR Message.


Please login to SAP and go to ME21N Tcode and before the Magic the error message shows in the bottom which may be not visible always

How we can change it to a Pop Up.

Go to Options by checking below screenshot

Select Notifications and Check Show error messages in a dialog box and Hit Apply and OK

After making this change you can get this new Pop Up.



You can use the above blog in SAP ECC as well as SAP S/4 HANA

      Good one! Thanks for sharing.

      But, this will make every error to display in a pop up in a user's system.
