Find the transaction code from where a spool request is originated

Hi experts,

I want to trace the transaction code from where a spool request is originated from. Is there any place where I can find it? For example, if a spool request is created from SE16 (by printing the contents of a database table), can I be able to get the transaction code (SE16) somewhere in the spool request’s attributes (or) in a trace?

Thanks,

Mohamed Yosufdeen JMH

    Hi,

    Can you be little clear in your intent behind this question?

    As far as I know, spool is used to print documents, i.e. if you want to print something from your program, you can do it through spool. It is only applicable for background jobs. If you want to see from where spool got created you have to go through that background job program.

    Please let me know if I can help further.

      No, SAP doesn't store the name of the program which generates a spool. By default, you only have the first characters of the program name in one of the spool name fields.
