How to Find Text/String in Abap Code
Sometimes when you want to find a text it may not appear on usage list results.
In those cases, you can use following transaction codes/reports to search string code blocks, including enhancements.
- Transaction EWK1 – Find text in code, including badi/enhancements
- Transaction CODE_SCANNER
- Report(SE38) RS_ABAP_SOURCE_SCAN
Hope those are useful for you.
There's also the Eclipse / ADT search which is much faster but only works on HANA.
Also needs to be set up by basis, see https://blogs.sap.com/2014/01/23/abap-sourcecode-search/
Thanks for sharing Mike.
EWK1 is not part of the Basis package so won't exist in all systems - e.g. BW. It's weirdly in the EWU package: All objects for EURO conversion! What were they thinking! 🙂
