Modification

Description of Function

In order to use the Modification Assistant to simplify the upgrade process, you branch to a special modification mode whenever you are modifying objects from the standard in an ABAP Workbench editor. Originals are initially protected in this mode and can only be changed with the help of the additional pushbuttons that are placed at your disposal.

All changes that you make to the system are logged with the help of the Modification Assistant. This provides you with a detailed overview of modifications that is easy to read and that dramatically reduces the amount of effort needed to upgrade your system.

The Modification Assistant offers support in the following areas:

ABAP Editor, Screen Painter, Menu Painter, text element maintenance, Function Builder, ABAP Dictionary (table and structure enhancements using append structures, data element attribute modification) and documentation (modification of documents from specific classes).

Range (Validity)
