Transport Control Program tpLocate this document in the navigation structure


The transport control program tp is a utility for controlling transports between SAP systems and for upgrading SAP releases. As a control program, tp uses some special programs that are required to perform complete transports.


The transport control program tp is normally called by other programs:

  • Change and Transport System (CTS)
  • Transport Management System (TMS)
  • Upgrade control program R3up

Therefore, you do not have to directly use tp.

Before you call tp directly, check whether the function you want is offered by the Transport Organizer or TMS.
