Have you ever come across the SAP ABAP Training transaction ABAPDOCU? If not, you’ve got to check it out. It’s a great tool to use when you need a quick refresh of ABAP syntax or need to look a little more in-depth on how certain code constructs work. Just use the navigation menu within the […]
User Selection Screens in ABAP This part of the course was maybe the most interesting for me. It was really important to understand the syntax and the coding part but seeing in practice what you have written is really great. The beautiful thing about ABAP selection screens is their simplicity. As a Java programmer (not […]
As said in the course, logical expressions are the principal statements used to build up your program logic and algorithms. ABAP offers all the classical loop statements and logical expressions, so you won’t miss anything for sure. I personally missed the for loop from Java and C/C++, but then realized there are other ways to […]

As I’ve mentioned in the previous review SAP offers you some great tools to help you maintain your database tables. However, to make things better, they’ve added SQL support (Open and Native-SQL). So, If you’ve had some experience with SQL (I’ll take MySQL as an example in this review) you’ll hardly have any problems with […]
Database tables are the main structures you will work with in SAP. As such, the system offers you all the tools you may need when you build your table. As I said in one of the previous reviews the interface is very understandable, but when it comes to modifying a table, there are some procedures you should do. However, the eight module in the course perfectly explains the steps you have to perform when you modify your table.
It’s really good there are detailed explanations of the particularities when working with key fields – adding, modifying, and deleting such ones. It’s an important thing because when we edit a key filed we could end up with our table messed out. That’s why there are interpretations of the main scenarios and results of performing one of the mentioned operations.
I personally liked the foreign key management abilities of the SAP system. Not that I’m so experienced in database modelling, but in comparison to some other software that I’ve worked with, SAP really takes one of the first places.
This is a guest article is by Plamen Velkov, who is taking my Beginners Guide To SAP ABAP programming course. This is part 4 of his course review / journey.
I don’t know why but debugging code is always something beginners like me pay no attention to. It was the same with me when I started programming with C some years ago. Then a friend of mine made me understand how helpful the debugger is while he helped me with a project for the university. I don’t remember exactly, but I think I was struggling with a recursive function with pointers which simply didn’t work. I spent a couple of days staring at the code and wondering where I went wrong and my friend solved the issue in only 10 minutes using the debugger.
We recently had a project in Java in the university and I went on to help a colleague with it. When he saw me using the Eclipse Debugger he was like
“Wow! Do you even use this?!”
When I managed to fix his code, that he made me explain how to use the debugger because as he said:
“That thing saves a hell of a lot of time!”
It’s also interesting that the first thing my manager showed me in ABAP was how she debugged a program with the ABAP Debugger.
The ABAP Debugger
I was really glad to see the course includes some videos on the Debugger. I did because I knew from the beginning that it would be an important tool since you work with databases with so many records.
