How to create SAP CTS project

You can create a CTS project in the transaction SPRO_ADMIN. You can create a project if you have authorisation for the auth object S_PROJECT. You can refer the HELP portal to follow the step by step instructions.

After creating the project, please specify the scope by following the step by step instructions in the HELP portal and generate the project.

After generating, you need to activate CTS Project for your consultants to be able to create transports in this project or assign existing transports to this project. For this please go to the tab “Transp. Requests” in the transaction SPRO_ADMIN and click on the “Activate SAP CTS Project” push button and save the project.

This project is now available for consultants to use for assigning transports and/or creating transports on this project.




Unable to load actual cost for the projects with sap error BP 603 – Item & budget exceeded

If you have activated availability control and if the actual cost is higher than the budget, it will throw this error while data uploads for actual costs. Please note that even if you have not activated the availability control, while uploading the budget, system automatically activates the availability control and you come across this error even if the message is warning.

Generally before Go Live of any project, the availability control is switched off to avoid this issue. After data migration is completed, the availability control is switched on in CJBN before delivering the system to the client just before Go Live. But before running CJBN, SAP recommends that you reconstruct the  PS Info Database with transaction CJEN.

Finding a Release Note in SAP

 Release notes describe the new functions and changes in each SAP release. Using the Help menu, you can display release notes for any SAP application and release. You can also search for release notes using keywords and attributes.

Whenever you receive a new SAP release, you should review the release notes. The release notes describe new functions that may affect the task you perform in the system. They also describe how to change Customizing and installation parameters before upgrading from one SAP release to another.

You can find a release note directly in your SAP system by executing T. Code SE61

Select Document Class as “Release Notes”. This field comes in display mode, but accepts your selection from F4 entries.

Then enter the release note in the field below for example “MM_PUR_40A_WIA” and execute.

 You can display release notes in the SAP Library or from within the SAP System.


To display release notes in the SAP System, proceed as follows:


  1. From the menu, choose Help ® Release notes.

The Find Release Notes screen appears.


  • For a list of all release notes, choose Complete list 3.0/3.1 or Complete list from 4.0.
  • Highlight the release notes for the SAP version you want to see, and choose Choose.A hierarchical list of the available release notes appears, with plus signs [+] to the left of every item that has sublists.
  • Display one of the release note sublists by double-clicking it.The sublist appears, containing release notes, more sublists, or both. You can identify a set of release notes by the fact that no plus or minus sign appears to the left of it.
  • Repeat step 3 until you see the desired release notes.
  • Double-click the release notes you want to display.


The release notes appear. To print the selected release notes, choose Print.

 Searching for Release Notes

You can search for release notes by keyword or by attribute.

A keyword is a term associated with a release note, such as “Purchasing” for release notes in purchasing.

An attribute refers to the type of information the release note contains. You can narrow the search for release notes by choosing the attributes of the release notes you want to display. For example, a release note has the attribute Changes to Customizing parameters if the new function requires a change in your system’s Customizing parameters. Thus, if you want to display all release notes requiring a change to Customizing, you can list all release notes with this attribute.

To search for release notes:

  1. From the menu bar, choose Help ® Release notes.
  • To search by keyword, choose Full text search.
  • To search for release notes that contain only a certain type of information, choose Attribute search.
  • Enter your search criteria (keywords or attributes).
  • Choose Find.

The system displays any release notes that match your search criteria.



What is smoke test in sap

The term smoke test in SAP means basic transactional tests to find out if the system is up and running fine or not. It helps detecting key SAP transactions, infrastructure and environment related issues before the system is handed over to the users. Automated test scripts can be run in smoke test or selective manual transactions can be executed to test the key transactions.

Finding Transport Requests for a given customizing table or IMG Activity

In implementation projects, some times mistakes do happen by consultants which lead to various issues. When I started analyzing a missing customizing entry in our quality system which was there already earlier, I found out the following method to trace the correct transport which has caused the problem.


Most of the configurations have either a table (rare) or a view (joins of more than one table) which are customizing table. So find out the table or the view in which the configuration is done by clicking F1 in any field of a customizing entry and from Technical information, pick up the Table Name. It might be a table or a view. You need this entry in the next step.

As the next step, execute SE16 with table E071 and enter the table name in the field “Object Name” and execute. You will see the list of transports which have touched this table. Now you can analyze the objects in each transports in SE01 to figure out where it went wrong and who did this as well.


In SPRO click on Additional Information in the menu bar and put your cursor in Additional Information –>Display Key–>IMG Activity. This will add another column in SPRO under the heading Additional Information and it will list the IMG Activity in many of the Configuration nodes. Copy this and enter in IMG Activity Selection field in E071 table under SE16 and execute. You will see the list of transports which have touched this table. Now you can analyze the objects in each transports in SE01 to figure out where it went wrong and who did this as well.

Buffering in classification tables

For all classification tables (such as CABN, CABNT, CAWN,CAWNT, KLAH, KSML, INOB, AUSP, SWOR, KLAT, KSSK), the buffering must never be activated in transaction SE11.

If the buffering is activated it can result in various serious problems and inconsistencies in the classification will be immense.
