Can i get the list of departments(like HR, Training, transport,etc...) available in a particular SAP system?

I want to add a search help for a department field.

    Hi Jay,

    This is somewhat of a very 'wide' question. For starters however please take a look at transaction SFW5 to see what Switches are used on your SAP System and what the system is setup for etc.. You could possibly derive a list from same.

    I hope this helps.

    Best regards,

      Hello Derrick,

      Thanks a lot for your reply.

      I need to create a user profile. There i have a department field in my frontend where i wish to give a search help, which picks the department information from some table like (t002 table which has languages). This would probably help me in writing a search help for the dept field so that i can choose the department from the existing entries in the system.

      I saw transaction SFW5, but i find the list of enterprise extensions and enterprise business functions. How is this information helpful for my requirement and how do i retrieve that information through search help. In case i hard code it for my search help then in future if there is a department added then i will miss out on the newly added field.
