You can still do it from the SAP Market Place, using the SAP Download Basket or the function module SCWN_NOTE_DOWNLOAD from within an ABAP program. Notes already downloaded are stored in tables CWBN* (easy to find using the SQL trace tool i.e. transaction ST05).

In SNOTE, click Display (eyeglasses) button and it opens quite a handy display, with PDF and save option right there.

There is also "Export as PDF" option in the Support Launchpad.

Is there really a need to reinvent this functionality?

Hi Jelena,

Thanks for your Reply!!

We have created the program to upload multiple OSS Notes(Text Files which are downloaded from service market Place) using the custom program , where we can implement multiple Notes in a single Go.

Purpose of this new program is to download multiple notes(Text Files) onto the desktop, so that upload program can implement the notes which are downloaded using the download Program.




Hi Naveen,

Your help would be highly appreciated...

Awaiting reply..

Why this mass implementation of S NOTES ?

What about the dependencies where a bit manual work is involved ( like creating a table or program as part of NOTES)and pre-requisite checks ?

Curious to know the advantages of such a Custom Program.
