Shortcut keys in SAP, must share with end users

Shortcut keys in SAP, must share with end users

Shortcut key in SAPBefore 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.

 

 

Here is the list:

  1. Ctrl S : Save the transaction
  2. F3     :  Back from existing screen
  3. Shift F3 : Exit System task
  4. Ctrl F : Find
  5. Ctrl G : Find next
  6. F4     : Open list drop down
  7. F8     : Execute a report or transaction
  8. F9 – execute in background
  9. F10 – opens header menu
  10. F5     : Refresh
  11. Ctrl Y : Select content
  12. Ctrl F8 : Open Layout
  13. Ctrl P : Print
  14. F1      : Help
  15. Ctrl + : Create new session
  16. Ctrl / : To go to the Transaction code command field on SAP screen
  17. To access history of Transaction code used. Click on the Transaction code command field and use UP and DOWN arrow keys.
  18. /n    : Close current session
  19. /o   : To generate session list or to pen a new SAP Easy access screen
  20. /nex : Close all sessions and logout
  21. F4 to pull up the dropdown for a calendar, then F2 to choose today’s date. F4 + F2 = Quickly filling out today’s date in a date required field. This shortcut can help you while running various report based on dates.
  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 helpfull to SAP Consultants, not end users.

 

I have shared few shortcut keys. If you remember more keys then put them in comment section. I will update them in the article.

    One of the frequently asked questions by the end users is- how to find a transaction code in SAP.
    These are shortcuts users find very helpful:
    In dialog box, 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 tcodes

    This 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
