Need Small clarification about SPAU and SPDD.

I never used the above tcodes, Now i need to use it.
We are upgrading to 14 presently we are using 6.0

I read the documents about SPAU and SPDD.These two t codes will show the difference of the previous and present changes.

But i have a doubt Where can i Run the these two tcodes.

Can any body explain.

    Hello Kali,

    You run transactions SPAU and SPDD after the upgrade of your development system. There you decide, which modifications in programs (SPAU) or data dictionary objects (SPDD) you would like to keep or which to revert to standard. These decisions are recorded in a transport request, that you then use for your quality assurance and productive systems.

    Best regards

    Frank
