    Go to SE80, Type then name of the function group and select "Function Group" from the drop down. Now hit enter. In the tree structure below, right click on the function group name and select copy. Give the new name. System will ask if you want to copy the functions underneath, select them and rename them.

    Regards,

    But this will clone the function under this group but what about the dependent object. For example in this function group has 4 function module and that function module has some user exits and that user exits has different functionnal group so how can i link that?

    thanks

      Hi,

      Best way is, create your own function group and activate it.

      Then, from SE37, copy all the function modules which you require into this function group.

      How does this sound?

    Hi,

    While copying dependent function groups or function module please take care the program name and Include name in the "Attribute" tab. This will control the backflow while existing from dependent function modules.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I learned a very hard lesson on cloning transaction CO01 (Production Order create). My suggestion not to go for it.

    My suggestion is NOT clone SAP function groups or transactions, for a variety of reasons, the primary one being that by cloning you get into maintenance nightmare, particularly at the next R/3 version upgrade,

    when SAP's version will work afterward and the cloned copy almost certainly won't work any more...this is just my experience and viewpoint...

    Thanks
