Function documentationTable and Field Comparison

 

This report provides a comparison of the repository in the sender system with that in the receiver system. You can use the results of the analysis to decide on whether system shell creation is required.

Prerequisites

You have ensured that RFC destinations are available for the sender system and the receiver system. If they are not available, you have created RFC destinations in the SM59 transaction.

Activities

Proceed as follows:

  1. Enter an RFC destination for the sender system.

  2. Enter an RFC destination for the receiver system.

    Note Note

    You can specify an already existing RFC destination that you created using the SM59 transaction or you can use the input help to select an existing RFC destination.

    End of the note.
  3. Choose the Next pushbutton.

    The repository comparison details for the previous execution of the report appear on the Table and Field Comparison screen.

  4. Choose the Start Comparison pushbutton to start the table and field comparison for the present execution of the report.

    The report executes the comparison in the background.

  5. Choose the Refresh pushbutton to view the most recent comparison status.

    After the comparison is complete, you can view the comparison results in the following sections:

    • Tables Present in the Sender System But Not Present in the Receiver System: You can choose to ignore these tables during data transfer. If you want to include these tables in data transfer, ensure that the tables exist in the receiver system

    • Fields Present in the Sender System But Not Present in the Receiver System: If any of the fields absent in the receiver system is a key field, data transfer may end in errors. For best results, ensure that the fields in the sender system and the receiver system are identical.

    • Fields Present in the Receiver System But Not Present in the Sender System: If any of the fields absent in the sender system is a key field, data transfer may end in errors. For best results, ensure that the fields in the sender system and the receiver system are identical.
