    Hi Balaji,

    CU (Customizing) = change the content of a Customizing table ( refers to TA SM30 or special CU-Transactions)

    WB (Workbench) = change a workbench obj.( an object , that was created with the workbench, i.e., with se38, se80 or se11) -> refers to a developement object not

    content of a control-table

    regards Andreas

    Hi Balaji,

    I'm not sure what you mean with technical difference? All requests are stored in table E07*.

    As a general rule,

    Customizing requests are client dependant (eg table config).

    Workbench requests are client independant (eg ABAPs).

    Hi,

    Each transport request has 3 internal files generated. K, D and R files which are Kofiles (Control files), Data files and Repository files respectively. Customizing requests have only K and D files as they don't capture changes to Repository objects. Whereas Workbench requests have K, D and R files. I hope this is what you mean by 'technical' difference.

    Please award points if this helps.

    regards,

    Madhavan
