    Hi

    Upgrade Projects can follow one of the 2 possibility.

    1. Technical Upgrade: in which the basis consultant will handle the same & transport the configurations & developments from 5.0 to 6.0. Subsequent to which functional consultant & ABAP er will do the necessary change in configuration or further configuration & ABAP ers will do necessary developments required.

    2. Traditional ASAP mythology: which would refer as new implementation as a whole.

    STEPS IN TECHNICAL UPGRADE

    • Basis Team will do the prepare activities. (UNIX, BASIS, DBA).

    The client has modified • Developer need to run the Transaction SPDD, which provides the details of SAP Standard Dictionary, objects that. Users need to take a decision to keep the changes or revert back to the SAP Standard Structure. More often decision is to keep the change. This is mandatory activity in upgrade and avoids data loses in new system.

    • After completing SPDD transaction, we need to run SPAU Transaction to get the list of Standard SAP programs that have been modified. This activity can be done in phases even after the upgrade. Generally this will be done in same go so that your testing results are consistent and have more confident in upgrade.

    • Run SPUMG Transaction for Unicode Conversion in non-Unicode system. SPUM4 in 4.6c.

    • Then we need to move Z/Y Objects. Need to do Extended programming check, SQL trace, Unit testing, Integration testing, Final testing, Regression Testing, Acceptance Testing etc.,

    The main Category of Objects that needs to be Upgraded is –

    • Includes

    • Function Groups / Function Modules

    • Programs / Reports

    • OSS Notes

    • SAP Repository Objects

    • SAP Data Dictionary Objects

    • Domains, Data Elements

    • Tables, Structures and Views

    • Module Pools, Sub Routine pools

    • BDC Programs

    • Print Programs

    • SAP Scripts, Screens

    • User Exits
