    OSS notes are corrections/fixes found in the SAP service marketplace.

    There are two ways to connect to the notes search system.

    These are:

    1. The Web" target="_blank">">Web Frontend via your browser.

    2. The SAPGUI">SAPGUI> for Windows frontend via transaction OSS1 in your SAP system. [must be preconfigured by your system administrators]

    The notes contain instructions and in some cases code corrections. The code can be applied manually via the developer tools or via transaction SNOTE which will try to automatically step you through the application process.

    Where the correction is complex and/or not a high priority it maybe that the code is delivered in a Support package and no "advance" code is provided. In this case you have to apply a collection of fixes together at once. This is usually done by your system administrators

    Hi VS,

    You will find all the needed information in the note assistant guide -> Note Assitant Tutorials ->

    Documentation Note Assistant (en).

    Once you have access to the snote transaction, you must get the needed OSS note into the transaction in some way. You can do this directly if you have an OSS link to SAP by using the download function, or you can download the OSS note using the SAP Download Manager and uploading the note into snote. Once the OSS note has been made known to snote in some manner, an entry line showing the note number and topic will appear on the main snote screen. There will be an icon to the left of each displayed line. In order to apply the OSS note in your SAP instance, the icon must show as a black arrow head on a blue background.

    Also this is one very useful link which would explain you further regarding SNOTE .

    Hope this helps you.

    Thanks & Regards

    Sadhu Kishore
