Procedure documentation Changing Objects in the Original System  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


You can edit existing objects directly in the appropriate editor. When you switch to editing mode, the system checks to see whether you are allowed to edit the object, or whether it is already locked by another user.


  1. When you save the object, the Transport Organizer request query screen appears. As described in Creating Objects, you can either select a change request from a list generated with Own requests or create a new request with Create request.
  2. If you have selected an existing request that you are involved in, but all of your tasks have been released and therefore cannot be used, then a new task of the type development/correction is created automatically.

If you only have one task in the request and this has not yet been assigned to a particular type, it becomes a task of the type development/correction.


The name of the object is now added to the task object list. From this point onwards, the object is locked by the change request and only users with tasks in the request are allowed to edit the object.

When the object is edited again by any of these users, the request query screen no longer appears. The object is, however, added to the task of the user involved, if it has not already been entered there.

Users working together on a change request constitute a development team working on the same project.
