Default: 0

Strings, some of which may be defined or a number

You can distribute, or split, the data from a transport request over several files. This may be necessary, for example, if you are exporting very large transport requests. To distribute the data, activate the parameter filesplit . The default value 0 deactivates the new function so that all files that are exported can also be processed with older transport tools.

The values off , false and no have the same meaning as the default value 0 . If you want to set the parameter to a numerical value other than 0 , the export data is split into files of this specified maximum size.


Values between 0 and 1048576 (=1 MB) are handled as if they were 1048576 , since smaller data sizes are not useful.

If you enter one of the values on , true or yes instead of a numerical value, tp assumes that a numerical value was specified that corresponds to 1 GB-1 (2147483647).

The names of the generated files are determined and only depend on the name of the transport request. If the transport request is called C11K904711, for example, then the files are named in the sequence they were generated, as follows: R904711.C11, R904711_0.C11, R904711_1.C11,...,R904711_Z.C11,R904711_00.C11,...,R904711_ZZ.C11. A maximum of 1298 continuation files is possible.

Default: Empty text

Value range: Text

If this value is specified, it is transferred directly to R3trans . If R3trans does not receive a value for the languages to be exported, it exports language-dependent data from all the languages that it can find. If the parameter language is transferred, R3trans tries to export the languages specified in this text. Each language is identified by a single letter. You can specify several languages by entering a sequence of letters.

The master language is stored for each object in the object directory (table TADIR). This is the language in which the object was created or is maintained. In this mode, the language-specific data in the master language is transported, however, not translated texts. This master language does not have to be contained in the language vector (LANGUAGE).

Only the translated data is transported in this mode, not however entries in the master language. Only languages contained in the language vector are considered.

As for translation , languages not contained in the language vector are also considered.

All entries belonging to the original language or contained in the language vector are transported.


All the functions mentioned are based on the original language of a text object being defined. This applies for all text parts of the Repository objects. There are exceptions for the remainder objects that are not listed here.

Default: Empty string

Value range: Text

Possible values: R3trans options

This parameter lets you use the transport control program tp to transfer any R3trans options to R3trans . Since you can specify several R3trans options using a transport profile parameter, note the following when using this parameter:

Procedure for Transferring R3trans Option op_name = op_wert :

    1. First, check if an R3trans option is already set for the target system.
    2. Change to the subdirectory bin of the transport directory and enter the following command:

      tp showparams <TSID> parname=r3transoptions

      <tsid> is the target system name. The output from this command is normally empty. If your transport profile already contains R3trans options, this is the output. (You can ignore warnings or error messages about unknown or invalid parameters.)

    3. Add the output from the above-mentioned command to the new R3trans option (divided by blank space), and use this new value for the transport profile parameter r3transoptions .


Example for the option safeandslow=yes

Assuming the command above returns rawdocu=no , then the new value for the parameter would be r3transoptions: rawdocu=no safeandslow=yes .

Default: R3trans

Value range: Text

This parameter is used to transfer the complete name of the program R3trans to tp . The default value is not a complete path specification. The operating system and the settings of the operating system are used to find the correct value.

Because all transports are performed by the SAP System user on the operating system level, the default value is correct.
