Controlling Imports using tp
The program tp offers several advantages over direct use of the programs it uses:
tp keeps track of transports.
tp exports and imports objects in the correct order.
tp ensures that imports into a target system are done in the same order as the exports from the source system(s).
tp lets you perform exports and imports separately.
The transport control program tp is normally called by other programs:
- Transport Organizer
- Transport Management System (TMS)
- Upgrade control program
Therefore, you do not have to directly use tp .
Before you call tp directly, check whether the function you want is offered by the Transport Organizer or Transport Management System.
tp enables you to:
- Perform imports
- Transport client-specific data
- Perform special transports
