    Hi,

    When it is a technical upgrade from a lower version to ECC6.0, many objects like includes, Function modules, reports, OSS notes, DDIC objects, BDC/Print programs, SAP scripts, screens will get affected due to the upgradation. So we need to check with all these objects.

    So a developer should be aware of the following:

    •Unicode programming is followed in ECC6.0. So we need to be aware of it to rectify certain Unicode errors which are likely to occur.

    •You have to run the transactions SPAU & SPDD to check for list of standard & custom objects that needs modification in the upgraded version.

    Check the below link to find more details on usage of SPAU & SPDD transactions

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw2004s/helpdata/en/60/d6ba7bceda11d1953a0000e82de14a/content.htm

    •Should be aware of the objects that have become obsolete in ECC6.0. They have to be replaced by appropriate ones.

    --> The WS_* function modules have been replaced by GUI_* FMs in ECC6.0 as WS_* FMs have become obsolete from 4.7

    -->Tables like TVARV & TTREX have been replaced by TVARVC & TTREXN respectively in ECC6.0.

    •In case of tables, we need to specify the Enhancement category.

    •Due to upgradation, we will lose out some variants. So we should take a back-up before proceeding with the upgradation.

    •In case of BDC programs, some field names will be changed. So they have to be named appropriately.

    Please check with the below link for more details:

    Hi Sayee,

    I have certain doubts in your post. You have mentioned that customer objects are also handled using SPAU and SPDD? Is that a typo or did u really mean it? Because I am a rookie abapper and i just know that SPAU (and SPDD) is used to adjust customer changes made to standard objects, during an upgrade. Where does customer objects come in scene when considering SPAU and SPDD? Please clarify. Thanks in advance..
