Hi Gurus,

Please tell me the significance of copying and renaming the std. SAP docs/ I cats etc. with a Z prefix.

I have to conduct a session with the client soon on its importance.

Thanks

    Hi,

    A prefix of Y or Z is used in SAP if you are defining anything of your own (say order type/ item catagory etc)

    Best practice is to copy Standard SAP requirement , remane it with prefix Z and make necessary changes to suit your requirement.

    This helps in identification and original SAP settings are not disturbed.

    Creating Z nomenclature is of significant importance.

    1. You can have a nomenclature and hence divide the programs as per the processes.

    2. During upgrades, all the enhancements on the systems, can be analysed readymade if there is a nomenclature for custom made developments.

    3. It will be helpful to avoid OSS notes influence on the Zobjects. Whenever OSS notes are implemented, it wont affect objects having Z* value.

    I hope this helps you.

    Reward if this helps.
