    The CUA area menus are converted to tree navigation in Release 4.6A. The menu contents are automatically copied into a new data structure in Upgrade to Release 4.6A or higher. You can edit Area Menus with a new maintenance interface (Area Menu maintenance transaction: SE43 ).

    Reporting Tree Integration

    Only transactions could previously be put in Area Menus. From Release 4.6A you can also put all the types of reports which are in reporting trees, in Area Menus. The system automatically assigns a transaction code to call the report from the menu. If you have already put the report in another Area Menu, no new transaction code is generated, the unique transaction code already assigned is used.

    You can create Area Menus from complete reporting trees with the migration transaction RTTREE_MIGRATION . The report transaction codes are generated automatically.

    Reporting trees can only be displayed. They cannot be maintained. To modify the contents of reporting trees, you must convert them with the migration transaction. You can then modify the contents with the Area Menu maintenance.

    Advantages of the new Area Menus

    The new data structure has the following advantages:

    Delinking by reference technique

    You can construct a menu from submenus which are maintained separately in different systems.

    Less restrictions

    The new area menus have no nesting level limit like CUA menus. The allowed length of menu texts has increased to 75 characters.


    The following components of the previous area menus are no longer supported:

    Application toolbars

    Fast paths

    Procedure for creating area menu maintenance:

    1. Enter a name for the Area Menu in the Area Menu input field. Do not use Umlauts or special characters in Area Menu names; they are not allowed in object names.

    2. Choose Area Menu ® Create.

    3. Enter a meaningful description for the Area Menu in the following dialog box.

    4. Choose Insert entries.



    kindly reward if helpful.
