Procedure documentationAnalyzing Objects


Analyze the objects by using the following result list features:

  • Where-Used List:

    This feature helps you to identify if other references exist for a particular object, and identify how many references exist. It can be case that the person responsible for an object is not aware of all possible references for that object. For example, consider a customer function module used by colleagues in their objects. The author of this object may not be aware of these references. You can do the where-used list for the object in the remote system.

  • Remote Comparison

    This feature allows the author of the program to compare the version of an object with the version of that object in another system. For example, you can compare the version of an object with the version in the target system to determine if the object versions are equal. If the two versions are different, you must examine any possible reasons for this. You can only perform a remote comparison for one at a time.

  • Extended List

    In the Detailed View, you can view all the executable objects (for example a report or function module) that are associated with the non-executable objects (for example data elements). The Extended List includes the following columns:

    • SYSID (Executable)

      System ID of the executable object

    • PGMID (Executable)

      Program ID of the executable object

    • Object Type (Executable)

      The type of the executable object

    • Object Name (Executable)

      Name of the executable object

Example Example

If a domain is marked as Used, you can choose Extended List to view any associated executable objects (such as the program in which it is used).

End of the example.
