You use enhancements to improve and mold business processes according to company standards. Learn how to find enhancements quickly to increase efficiency and minimize effort when seeking to locate a particular enhancement.

Although SAP provides a variety of industry solutions, SAP cannot anticipate company-specific requirements. For example, you might need to modify the business process for your business, enhance screens to address your end users’ needs, or manipulate data in a specific way at runtime to generate the data needed to analyze business futures. To help you meet these challenges, SAP provides a variety of access points, known as enhancements, which you can use to manipulate the system. Enhancements include function exits, screen exits, and Business Add-ins (BAdIs).

Before enhancing an application, first you need to locate these enhancements in your SAP system. Here are three different ways to do this:

  • Search an SAP program
  • Search the BOR
  • Find a BAdI using SQL Trace
