    Hi,

    in debug mode we will place the watch points.

    we cannot place them at all abap statements like break points.we can place the watch points fr5o variables.

    whenever the value of that variable changes the debugger will be triggered if the value of that variable is not changed throughout the program debugger will nor trigger if u press F8 key

    <b>reward if helpful</b>

    Hi,

    There two types advantage if you use watch point properly.

    1. if you run sap standard transactions ,some times we get error message ,if you want to debug the complete program ( it may take much time ) ,i mean you want to know where the message is coming.

    even you have one more option like double click on message ->it gives message id and message number,In se91 -> you can choose where used list and it shows program name ,but some time it will not show ( I mean dynamic message ).

    run the transaction -> /h -> it will go debugging. now create watch point as like

    variable as message id and value mesage number,it will stop exactly there.

    2. some times you get wrong values on only partcular field ,on few columns ,you want to see the exact select query on that condition,then create watch point

    Hi,

    You can use the watchpoint in debug mode.

    For example if your looking for an document number say 6789 which is in 1000 line. It is very tedious to go thru all the 999 lines. If once you create a watchpoint and press F8 it straight away take to you to the 1000 line no.

    Thanks,

    Sriram Ponna.

    In Debugging mode, if u want to check particular values in a loop, we will make use of watchpoints.
