Important Sap Gui Key Shortcuts That Will Increase Your Productivity

The area in which you enter an SAP transaction code is called Command-field or "OK Code". The shortcut to select this command field is CTRL+/

Use SAP GUI like a pro


Here are some entry options for OK codes:
  • /n - The /n option terminates the current transaction
  • /n<TXNCODE> - The /n option terminates the current transaction and TXNCODE followed by /n calls transaction TXNCODE
  • /nend - This option terminates all the sessions from the current PC and logs the user off.
  • /nex - This option terminates all the sessions from the current PC and logs the user off immediately without issuing warnings
  • /o - The option /o lists existing sessions and allows deletion or opening of a new session.
  • /o<TXNCODE> - The option /o followed by a transaction code TXNCODE opens a new session and starts transaction TXNCODE in the new session. If the maximum number of sessions per user are breached, an error is displayed.
  • /i - The option /i terminates the current session
  • /i1 - The option /i1 terminates session 1. Similarly /i<N> terminates session N.
  • .xyz - While navigating menus, each menu item you click has a character that is underlined. These can be navigated using . followed by the underlined characters. For example all the click through Goto > Overview > System can be accessed using .Gvs. One more example is illustrated in the pic at the beginning.
  • /h - Switched to debugging mode.
  • /hs - This switches into debugging mode and activates the debugging of system functions
  • /$SYNC - Resets all the buffers on the currently logged on application server
  • /$CUA - Resets the CUA buffer on the currently logged on application server
  • /$TAB - Resets the table buffers on the currently logged on application server
  • /$NAM - Resets the nametab buffer on the currently logged on application server
  • /$DYN - Resets the screen buffer on the currently logged on application server
  • &sap_edit is a bit tricky with SAP placing few restrictions on it.

Copy-Pasta

Copy-paste between SAP screen and other application (like excel, notepad, word etc) works a little bit differently. First you have to activate mark option using CTRL+Y. This activates a cross-hair cursor with which you can select all the data you wish to select. Then copy the selected data to OS's clipboard using CTRL+C (copy) or CTRL+X (cut). Now you can paste into non-SAP application using the normal paste (CTRL+V)

You can also activate automatic copy by selection of text.
