Converting QuickViews to QueriesLocate this document in the navigation structure


You can convert any QuickView into a query. More functions and report forms are available in SAP Query than in the QuickViewer. In addition, SAP Query allows you to re-use transfer queries to other systems and clients.


In order to convert a QuickView into a query, first choose a user group that you are assigned to and that you will subsequently want to assign your query to. If the QuickView you want to convert is based on an InfoSet, then this InfoSet must be assigned to your user group.


To convert a QuickView to a query, proceed as follows:

  1. Choose Start of the navigation path Utilities Next navigation step SAP Query Next navigation step Queries End of the navigation path in the ABAP Workbench.

  2. Choose Change User Group. Select the user group you want.

  3. Choose Start of the navigation path Query Next navigation step QuickView End of the navigation path. A dialog box appears:

  4. Enter a name for the query.

  5. Enter a name of your choice for the InfoSet if the QuickView you want to convert has been created using a logical database, a table, or a table join. The InfoSet will then be generated automatically. The function of queries is based on the use of InfoSets. The existence of an InfoSet is a prerequisite for processing further in the framework of the SAP Query.
