Handling of Legacy Fields in SAP S/4HANA

When working with custom fields and specially legacy fields in SAP S/4HANA, there is a transaction to use it is called SAP GUI Transaction SCFD_EUI. I would like to share with you that our development team has put together a nice technical document that explains and answer most of the common questions and as well explain the usage of SAP GUI Transaction SCFD_EUI. To find all the details about it, please refer to our WIKI document: Handling of Legacy Fields in SAP S/4HANA

      Tank you Ali for sharing.

      This is critical information, that I assume 99,99% of all new S/4 projects are not aware about it.

      I think it will take years, until project managers and developers will get this together and start using the extension framework actively also for legacy custom fields.

      Dear Ali,

      have you ever tried to copy & paste the SQL queries provided in the PDF? Unfortuntately all spaces are lost when doing so. Maybe you could create a wiki page that provides the statements. Also a blog supports nice formatting. I created for example this report to find the business context for a given table:

      REPORT z_find_bus_context_for_table.
      DATA: tabname LIKE dd03l-tabname.
      SELECT-OPTIONS: so_tab FOR tabname.
      SELECT business_context FROM cfd_w_bus_ctxt
        INNER JOIN dd03l ON dd03l~precfield = cfd_w_bus_ctxt~persistence_include
        INNER JOIN dd02l ON dd02l~tabname = dd03l~tabname
        WHERE dd02l~tabclass = 'TRANSP'
        AND dd03l~tabname IN @so_tab
        AND cfd_w_bus_ctxt~persistence_include IS NOT INITIAL
        INTO TABLE @DATA(lt_table_names).
      LOOP AT lt_table_names ASSIGNING FIELD-SYMBOL(<fs_table_name>).
        WRITE: / <fs_table_name>-business_context.
