About ABAPer

Hi, I am new to SAP ABAP. I am now a ABAPer for a company for just 2 months only and fully incharge to develop all forms, reports, etc based on requirement. But I never go through the proper training or take any course. I am just trained by the ABAP consultant for some basic knowledge only. So I am not too sure everything about ABAPer.

Can any one please tell me that:

1) What kind of skills that every ABAPer need to learn? Can list all the skills that I need to know for me?

2) What kind of works are done by ABAPer?

3) Other related issues about ABAPer.

Thank you.

    In a typical SAP implementation, the Functional consultant, takes the user requirements and configures the system accordingly.The functional consultant specializes in a particular functional area, say SD, MM, Finance, etc. Also, its important for the functional consultant to know the integration points between various modules.

    An ABAPer comes into picture for a typical SAP R3 scenario when you need to procure custom Reports, Scripts, Layout sets, code batch upload programs, change std functionality through exits or develop interactive screens. The specifications are usually given by the Functional consultant. Its also helpful for the ABAPer to know the basic functional flow to understand the logic behind the specs and also to test it out on his own.

    I hope it helps.

    Best Regards,

    Its gr8 to see U in the same Position as mine. We both r in the same position. I suggest u first clear the very basics of ABAP like INTERNAL TABLES, SELECT STATEMENT, & DATA Dictionary. These are very crutial things for anything in ABAP.

    Go thru

    1."Sams Teach Yourself ABAP/4 in 21 Days by Ken Greenwood". 2."Introduction to ABAP/4 Programming for SAP, Revised and Expanded Edition by Gareth M. De Bruyn and Robert Lyfareff ".

    For any topic's Help in ABAP, type that Particular word in ABAP Editor & press F1 Help. It will also give U good notes. Also use transaction "ABAPDOCU" for sample ABAP code avalable in SAP.

    And U will find lot of materail on web,,,,,,,,
