    Eswar:

    SAP does not allow you to restrict access to your report programs. Anybody with the right autorizations can see your programs.

    There are some tricks to achieve someting like that. Tricks consists basically in write your code without enter between lines. I think there are no effective way in SAP or ABAP to protect programs source code from curious eyes.

    Ex.:

    REPORT ztest. TABLES: ztable. DATA: g_var1...

    hi this is not possible , the user may have the authorisation to display it but he may not change it...you can prevent the other users not to change the program by specifying the EDITLOCK in the program attributes...

    Hi Eswar,

    I suppose you can not make it invisible the code but you have an option not to change your code by others using 'Editor Lock'. You can set this through 'Attributes' section from your report.

    Thanks,

    In a commercial environment, if a programmer managed to make their code unreadable, they'd very quickly find themselves unemployed.

    Don't try it.
