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 R3up

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
