    I have gone thru the Sudheer's answer, still I am looking for a much more detailed answer please.

    There are three generations of user-exits in SAP ABAP now.

    First generation: there had been empty subroutines in place in the coding where you could add your code. However, this required to modify code of SAP standard programs.

    Example: search for forms starting USEREXIT.. in SAPMV45A

    Second generation: CUSTOMER-FUNCTION. In certain places of SAP standard code there are calls CALL CUSTOMER-FUNCTION ‚001' . These routines can be defined with SMOD edited with transaction CMOD.

    Third generation:

    using ABAP objects instances, they are called BADI. They are call with CALL METHOD (instance) .... they are created with transactions SE18/SE19. To find BADI search for the word EXIT_HANDLER in the coding.

    BADI Example :

    Look at the below link, it will explain you very clrear difference between BADI & User Exit
