Can SAP GUI Script /vba macro affect the performance of SAP?


Hi Everyone!

Good day!

I hope you can help me with my problem.

In our company, we are using SAP r/3. 740 final release for our Accounts Payable tasks like posting a lot of invoices and creating reports.

I am planning to improve our process by creating a macro tool from excel and connecting it to SAP with proper check points in place in order to not have incorrect postings in SAP. So basically I will be inputting details to SAP for our invoice postings and then exporting details from SAP for our reports.

My problem is, I do not have the access for the Script Recording and Playback option in SAP. Our IT team said that providing access for this option to the business end user might cause performance issues to the system.

Can someone tell me if using SAP GUI scripts would really affect the performance of the system?

I understand that automating tasks into SAP might cause errors in our data so please take note that I will be putting necessary check points in place for scripts that are going to input detail in the system.

Thank you so much everyone for your help. hope you could help me with this one.

Have a nice day! ^__^
