    Do you mean Extended Program Check?

    You can find info on this at :

    There are two types of program checks - static check(when the program is created) and dynamic check(when you run the program).

    The static check is again of two types - syntax check and epc (Extended program check)

    The system checks ABAP programs statically when you create them and dynamically when they are running.

    The syntax check tests the syntax of the program and internal semantics of a program. This what we usually use when we create the program using CNTL+F2.

    The extended program check performs a semantic check (including, for example, checking whether the number and type of the interface parameters in an external procedure call is correct).

    Many checks are excluded from the standard syntax check for performance reasons. The extended program check performs a complete check that includes the interfaces of external procedures called from your program.

    Errors in the extended program check cause exceptions, which in turn cause runtime errors when you run the program. You must correct them. The exception to this is coding that cannot be reached. However, you should delete this to minimize the size of your program and make the source code easier to understand.

    Warnings in the extended program check should also be corrected. If your program contains statements that are definitely correct but still produce warnings in the extended program check, you can exclude them from the check using pseudocomments ( "#ECÂ… ).

    You should always run the extended program check on a new program. You have not finished developing a new program until you can run the extended program check on it without any errors or warnings. Messages are permissible, since they are generally not critical.

    The extended program check is also only a static check. It cannot eliminate all of the circumstances that could lead to exception situations or runtime errors. For example, any statements in which you specify arguments dynamically as the contents of fields, or in which you call procedures dynamically, cannot be checked statically.

    Hope that was useful.

    Flexive: EPC's SAP Support Service


    Provides the responsiveness of a centralised support centre with the customer intimacy of on site support.

    Focuses on both proactive and reactive support.

    Is a partnership focussed on delivering value to your business.

    Takes SAP support to the next level.

    Utilises SAP's Solution Manager and is based on ITIL best practices.

    Flexive support consultants are mobile. They are equipped with laptops with 3G connections back to the EPC support centre which in turn is connected to the clients systems. From these laptops they are able to rapidly dial back to the office, and from there, into any client site. That way they can start work within a defined timeframe on a priority one call.

    Because Flexive support consultants are mobile and move from site to site, they can provide the high levels of business understanding and process optimisation advice that can only come from face to face contact.

    Flexive uses an hour bank to ensure that you always receive value. With Flexive, you contract for the hours of support that you expect you will need per month. This support can be a mixture of on site and remote support, however, your Flexive consultant will spend at least one day per month on site.

    Any unused hours in a month are held over in an hour bank and can be used for extra support, say at year end, or for mini-projects. A mini-project is a small piece of work that we jointly identify as delivering clear business value. In this way, we ensure that you will always receive value for your Support Investment.

    Flexive also takes advantage of SAP's solution manager which has been designed to support ITIL, the IT Infrastructure Library. ITIL, or BS 15000, is fast becoming the de facto standard for IT organisations.'s_sap_support_service.html
