20+ Shortcut keys in SAP must be shared with end users


Before writing this article (Shortcut keys in SAP), I thought that most of the consultants already know the shortcut keys in SAP, then what is the point of writing such article. However, not all core team members and end users are aware of this information. Therefore, you can share this information with them.

I have observed that while working on an implementation project the consultant focused more on business processes and mapping of processes in SAP. In a support project, the consultant focus on SLA, incidents and change request. In such a situation they never get time to share such information (about shortcut keys) with client and end users. These shortcut keys are very helpful to end users. This can make their life easier. I request you to add this post in your favorites and share the link with your client and end users.

  22. How to find a t code in SAP? End user struggles while navigating various nodes in easy access screen. This trick helps them to a find out the desired t code. here you go:                                                                       In the transaction code command field type:
    IW00 – for all work orders and notifications related tcodes
    IP00 – for all preventive maintenance related tcodes
    IR00 – for all work center related tcodes
    MM00 – for all material master related tcodes
    ME00 – for PO and preq related tcodesThis trick works for many other objects but not for everything though. Also, you can’t save these codes as Favorites so need to type it manually. But interesting to know.
  23. /h : Switch on the debugging mode.
  24. F7 : Display a table in SE11, program in SE38 screen. This shortcut key is helpful to SAP Consultants, not end users.
