A:\setup.exe for SAP R/3 - Does something like that exist?

I have developped a few ABAPS over time which I take with me from client to client. Everytime I have to re-create manually the program using SE38 and the upload source text feature. Screen labels I have to re-create manually. Documentation for the program does not come over. Data dictionary objects the same story, etc. etc.

I'm looking for a better way to install ABAP programs. Does SAP's transport system offer maybe any help? (Yes, an a:\setup.exe like solution would be nice. The utility would prompt your for a transport request and resolve any name clashes.)

Any suggestions for efficiently transporting ABAP programs between independent instances would be highly appreciated!

    I know that is possible to catch the request order file and then use that file in the smts target system, but I have never used it.

    Anyway, there are some public programs that can help you in this work. One of the best ones (at least for me) is (this one also saves and restores dynpros and pf-status).

    have a nice day,

      Thanks for the response!

      I understand from a Basis guy that the request order file only works if the development class you are using is already existing in the target system. But I never had a chance to try out this method.

      I will try out the public program you pointed me to. Do you know of any known issues/limitations with the public program?

      Of course it would be nice if SAP provided some standard solution for this problem. I have neen looking into xApps but that solution appears to attempt to tackle a bigger problem.
