Prerequisites

Before you log on, make sure you know:

If you want to work in a language other than English, make sure you know the language key for your desired language. For more information, contact your system administrator.

Note

After you have entered data in a field, you can move the cursor to the beginning of the next field by pressing the TAB key.

If you have set the Autotab option, you do not have to press the TAB key if you enter the maximum number of characters possible in a field. For example, the maximum number of characters you can enter in the Client field is three. If you enter 001 in the Client field, the cursor automatically moves to the beginning of the next field. For more information, see Tabbing Between Fields Automatically.

Procedure

If you are logging on for the first time, see Logging On the First Time.

If you have logged on previously, but cannot remember how:

  1. Check the Client field. This field may already contain a default client number.
  2. You can either accept the client number, or change it by typing over it.

    To move the cursor to the Client field, press the TAB key.

  3. If necessary, move the cursor to the User ID field by pressing the TAB key.
  4. In the User ID field, enter your user ID.

    To move the cursor to the Password field, press the TAB key.

  5. In the Password field, enter your password.
  6. As you type your password, the asterisks remain in the field, and only the cursor moves. As a security measure, the system does not display what you type.

  7. To display screens, menus, and fields in a language other than English, move the cursor to the Language field by pressing the TAB key. Enter the language key for the desired language.
  8. Choose Enter.
  9. In the standard SAP System, the Copyright dialog box appears.

    If you do not see this dialog box, check the status bar for a system message. You may have entered an incorrect client number, password, user ID, or language key. If this is the case, repeat steps 1 through 5.

  10. In the Copyright dialog box, choose Continue.

If there are systemwide messages for example, from your system administrator the System Messages dialog box is displayed. After you have read the messages, choose Continue to close the dialog box.

Result

You have successfully logged on to the SAP System.
