ABAP Releases

Hi everybody,

I am developing ABAP in Eclipse Luna and must extend an ABAP program developed by a former team.

The following points are important to understand my tasks:

  1. The program was developed on SAP NetWeaver Release 7.0
  2. The program must now run on SAP NetWeaver Release 7.4
  3. The program is very complex and have to call many FMs (Funktion Moduls).


  1. I have to realize that some IMPORT and EXPORT parameters of SAP-FMs are not the same between the two releases.

        Can you please help me in finding a good (full) documentation between two releases?

  1. Are there any ABAP-converter tools / program for releases?
  2. Is there a way to display on Console all the names of the called FMs of the program, without having to implement it myself with WRITE?

I appreciate any help, many thanks!

    Hi Ali,
    concerning question "Documentation between two releases", it's necessary to know which application/Add On/... that FMs belong to. You might need to consult with the experts, or do these FMs belong to SAP_BASIS?

      Hi Jasmin,

      thank you for having checked und for the URLs. Great help!

      The FM lives in a BW Function Group (RSDG_IOBJ_DB) because the program like I already wrote on the top has to do with the "ABAP in BW" for example:

      - Create InfoObjects with ABAP

      - Create InfoProvider with ABAP

      - Transformation with ABAP

      - etc

    Hi Ali,

    I am not aware of any tool that can help you in migrating your report from old to new ABAP release.

    For detecting the called function modules of your report you can use the environment analysis in transaction SE84:

    Here you can enter the name of your report and you will get a list of all objects that are used within the report.

    Maybe this will help you.

    Kind Regards,

      Hi Thomas,

      many thanks for your answer. it will be a great help.

      Sry, my third question was not precisely. I wanted to trace the names of FMs on the console in the chronological sequence.
