How can you save your Debugger spot and save it in a file to use it later?


The life of an ABAPer revolves around debugging. ABAPer debugs for a lot of reason and while debugging they sometimes gets distracted or something comes up(Coffee Break). Most of the time I used to always save the debugging screenshots as later when I will debug I can find those debug points and start my Debugging Journey. This Blog will explain how you can just save the debug spot in a file and Load the Debugging journey from where you left or at least get all the debug point/ Watchpoint activated



Login to SAP and Press /H to activate debugger

Then we will go to ME23N Tcode. Debugger has started

Now we will put debugger on Select Statement

Follow this path and save the debugger Spot

Make sure you select all the checkbox like below and save this in your desktop

Now we logout

We again login and activate debugger by pressing /H

Now Press ME23n Tcode

Now load the debugger file by following the below path

Select the filename we created and press green arrow


Wala the Breakpoint is loaded from the file


This is the solution you can use across different systems. I love this as it saves a lot of time and full proof solution



You can use this in both SAP ECC  and S/4HANA


Below is the video version

      Thanks for the hint.

      Even better solution: you are using ADT / Eclipse and that is the default behavior.

      why breakpoints option is greyed-out for me? is some minimum ABAP release level is required or there is another nuance?

      Probably a security Issue. Please check Su53 dump. Also try using File instead of Database

      I knew that already, but it's nice to be reminded of it. Being able to save a debugger Session (in the ABAP Debugger) is one of it's many great (and underrated / less known?) features!
