Program without a Package

Hi Folks,

I have a very weird issue....

Thing is I have a requirement where I have to make some code changes in a program and transport it...Thats very common ..but the twist is ...when I make change in the program in Dev client ..Its asking me for a package...

When I check the attributes of the program I notice that it is

TYPE - Executable program

APPLICATION - BASIS

LOGICAL DATABASE - D$S

So how do I determine the package in which this Z program is stored...I have already checked the where used list but nothing has come out of it...Even checked the Object directory but no use..

This program actually is triggered by external system called datastage to which this program sends data..

Regards,

Raghav

    Hi Raghavender,

    every active object in SAP is asigned to a package. A package formerly was called developmend class. This is part of the program attributes.

    If you are asked for a package then you are creating a new object (i.e. include program). You can assign any package in customer name space, check F4 value request for existing packages.

    If the program you are changing is a customer program, it will be assigned to a customer package - see program attributes.

    Regards,

    Clemens

    hi ragav,

    This happens when u want to make changes to an object whose task number and request number has been transported already but u want to make changes to that object.

    This usually happens in the real time when u forward the certain object to testing client and due to some limitations it needs to add some more code to that object then it has to be changed in the development client at that time u need to assign again that object to any package.

    reward is helpful.

    regards

    Hi,

    Just take the program in SE38 or SE80.

    From Menu Goto ->Attributes there is a field Package. there you can see the package.

    Usually the system will ask for package for new development objects. You can first assign it to a package and then to a transport request.

    Regards,

    Renjith Michael.

    Hi Raghav,

    Have you tried checking package '$TMP', which stores the objects with name Y or Z.

    Regards,

    Neerup.
