    Hi Jeffrey,

    I am not sure if there are any such best practices documentation available. But creating one big ABAP program that does so many things itself, is not considered a best practice.

    Correct me if I am wrong here, you want one ABAP program that gives the user a choice of reports, batch input programs and transactions(dialog screens) to choose from, and then branch out to individual functions that the users chose. This looks like more like a area menu functionality. This is how I would distribute the load, assuming my statement of your problem is correct.

    Separate out each individual report, batch input and dialog components into individual programs and assign it to individual programmers. Then have one person assemble them into one area menu(the name of which will also become your transaction code.). Alternatively, you can have a wrapper ABAP program that makes all the calls to these individual programs based on user choice(which will be the selection screen for this program).

    Please let me know if this helped.
