Where is sapactab.h?


When getting help on the CALL keyword (CALL cfunc, to call C routines), you are told that the function must exist in the file sapactab.h. However, I am unable to find this file anywhere on the filesystem.

Does anyone know where it is? I can find no reference to sapactab.h in the online help, and a search on OSS returns 3 notes, none of which actually give the location or anything that is helpful.

Thanks and Regards,

Martin Ceronio

    To implement a c-function for "CALL cfunc" is a SAP internal concept, which is not useable for outside the SAP system development.

    The docu mentions the sapactab.h, so that SAP basis developers can implement a "cfunc". Outside the basis development environment this file does not exist.

    Kind Regards

      Further to what Klaus has (very correctly) said, your easiest alternative is to write an RFC Server program, and then you can define any logic you like there, and access it via outboud RFC calls from ABAP.
