RE: Entering transaction and clicking the short cut.

Hi all,

I am trying to go in to a transaction by entering the transaction name. In this case it is /VIRSA/ZVRAT and i am getting the error "This function is not possible". but i entered the same transaction in my Favourites and clicked on the same transaction "VIRSA/ZVRAT" it works.

is there something i am doing wrong or did anyone restricted users not to enter transaction but click only on the menu / transactions provide to them? is there a possibility for this?

Thanks in advance,

SS

    This is not a restriction. I've seen this behaviour before but do not really know what causes it. I call it a bug 😉

    Have you tried entering /N/VIRSA/ZVRAT in the command box?

    Hi,

    The Transaction naming convention from the initial day has some static rules defined by SAP AG itself. Such one is these transactions starting with " / ". Any transaction you see like /* , they denotes SAP certified partner transactions. Sometimes these partner application got adopted by SAP (like Virsa and became GRC) but the naming convention remained same. One more example is PCAM transactions. The naming is like: /<Partner company naming>/<Transaction Text>.

    As per transactional processing logic any transaction can't be started with a special character. So you need to put a /n in-front of such tcodes.

    As much as I know, this is the case. 😊

    You may get more details from our experts here. Please have a look though you have already closed the thread.
