    Hi ,

    OSS notes are used to give support to the their clients by SAP , you have to go to www.service.sap.com where in you get a search engine to search your problem.

    For example a function module in 4.6c has limited functionality and is improved in 4.7c .

    there are assosiated note numbers with this , so you have to go to transaction OSS1 and then logon over there.

    and you can these notes and check whether they can be implemented or not .

    so you can change a particular standard FM or report to the desired functionality.

      Sometimes we will apply OSS notes to do the enhancement.

      By default Enhancement might not be available for a standard transaction in SMOD. Once you apply the OSS notes i.e., after adding new includes enhancement will be available in SMOD.

      Thanks,

    Hi,

    OSS notes are nothing but the patches provided by SAP.

    If some modifications are to be done to existing functionality or if there is a bug to be fixed, SAP releases the note, that is the changed code and when you apply the note, that specific code replaces the existing code.

    The main advantage of OSS notes is that SAP itself provides those and hence they are highly reliable.

    Customer Exits can be the alternative to OSS notes to some extent if present.

    Go to transaction OSS1 / SNOTE to view the notes.

    Hope it helps.

    Regards,

    Shashank

    Hello John,

    OSS (I perfer using the term SAP Service Marketplace 😊 )is most commonly believed to be the place where you can find the information about patches and support packages for the various SAP Applications that are released to the customer.

    However, that's only part of the story. There's a huge volume of information about various technical and functional aspects of the SAP applications. You will find tips for configuration, performance, and a zillion other topics in there. the best part is that this information is given by SAP. The author of each SAP Note is very experienced in the area.

    The most significant advantage is that the information there is always guaranteed to be correct and authentic (since it's provided by SAP itself!).

    Hope you find this information useful.

    Regards,

    Anand Mandalika.
