    Hi,

    You could copy the whole object into z name space and keep it. Then make changes to the old one. If nothin works, you could delete those screens and then copy back from z name space back up.

    Its a dirty way of doin back up.

    Thanks..

    Only way you can take back up to your Dialog programming is to copy the entire program with all screens into other program

    Always it is good parctice to place a comment what all changes you have done,. You can uncomment the old code and comment the new code if you still want the old code...

    By the way, why? do you want to test in production... do all your testing in Dev or QA.

    Sravanthi,

    1.copy a program only through SE80 and the screens using SE51.

    2.It is always a good practice to maintain only one transport request for all the related things of a particular object so that there won't be discrepancy while moving them to Quality and Production.

    If any thing goes wrong and you want to undo the changes done by you then:-

    1.As we know that SAP has provided a concept called version management.In case if anything goes wrong we can very well get back to previous version.

    2.Open the program,click on utilities in the menu bar.click on version management.

    There you will be able to see versions in the version database.click on the previou transport request and click on the retrive button.
