Hi Experts,
I am a Computer Science engineering Graduate with approx 2 years of SAP experience.
My experience includes:
OOPS-ABAP programming (8+ months)
ABAP-HR (7+ months)
SAP-NW –XI (4+ months)
I am getting option to choose ABAP-HR or XI for my next assignment. I have good interest for both so got confused what to choose.
Kindly guide me on the basis of current and future SAP market and requirement
Thanks and best regards,

i wld advide you to enhance your ABAP HR skills, as ur 7 months of previous experience is too little to claim command on HR module. You may touch new concepts of ABAP HR in the new project which will do good for your career as Techno-functional consultant who are always in demand.
exploit the opportunity to master one area, instead of diversifying into alltogether new one.
Ofcourse XI is a good area with future but if you choose XI all your previous Exp in ABAP HR may go waste.
The idea is to maximise exposure and opportunity for future by cashing upon experience and knowledge gained over years.Leverage on your current skills.
Ofcourse final decision is yours. Good Luck with whatever you choose.

  • Issue in Creation of XML file from ABAP data

    I need to create a XML file, but am not facing some issues in creation of XML file, the in the required format.
    The required format is
    -<Header1 1st field= u201CValueu201D 2nd field= u201CValueu201D>
       - <Header2 1st field= u201CValueu201D 2nd field= u201CValueu201Du2026u2026. Upto 10 fields>
              <Header3 1st field= u201CValueu201D 2nd field= u201CValueu201Du2026u2026. Upto 6 fields/>

    Iu2019m using the call transformation to convert ABAP data to XML file.
    So please anybody can help how to define XML structure in transaction XSLT_TOOL.
    And one more thing, here I need to put the condition to display the Header 3, Header 4, Header 5 values. If there is no record for a particular line item in header 3, 4 & 5, I donu2019t want to display full line items; this is only for Header 3, 4 & 5.
    Please help me in this to get it resolved.

    you can use CALL TRANSFORMATION id, which will create a exact "print" of the ABAP data into the XML.
    If you need to change the structure of XML, you can alter your ABAP structure to match the requirements.
    Of course you can create your own XSLT but that is not that easy to describe and nobody will do that for you around here. If you would like to start with XSLT, you´d better start the search.

  • Logical command in ABAP.....Urgent

      i am pretty new using ABAP program so i neeed help urgently. i am trying to move a file on the application server from one directory to the other and i was using the open dataset function to do that. but the file i am trying to move is pretty big and because i am using internal table to store, it is causing problems with the space.
      i have consulted the basis guys and they have managed to create a logical file for copying from one directory to the other on the application server. to help you furthter. i am enclosing the mail sent to me.
    I have created a logical command which should copy the file from one location to the other but you need to pass it the source dir and file name and the destination dir and file name.
    The logical command is ZCOPY and uses cmd /c copy
    Copies one or more files to another location.
    COPY [/V] [/N] [/Y | /-Y] [/Z] [/A | /B ] source [/A | /B]
         [+ source [/A | /B] [+ ...]] [destination [/A | /B]]
      source       Specifies the file or files to be copied.
      /A           Indicates an ASCII text file.
      /B           Indicates a binary file.
      destination  Specifies the directory and/or filename for the new file(s).
      /V           Verifies that new files are written correctly.
      /N           Uses short filename, if available, when copying a file with a
                   non-8dot3 name.
      /Y           Suppresses prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an
                   existing destination file.
      /-Y          Causes prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an
                   existing destination file.
      /Z           Copies networked files in restartable mode.
    The switch /Y may be preset in the COPYCMD environment variable.
    This may be overridden with /-Y on the command line.  Default is
    to prompt on overwrites unless COPY command is being executed from
    within a batch script.
    the problem now is i have no idea about how to use the logical command. can any one help me.
    Thank you,

    If memory is not an issue, then there should be no reason why this should not work.

  • Logical Database in Abap Objects

    Hi to All
    I want do it a program report using a Logical Database.
    Is this possible ??? But when I make a GET <node>, occurs the following error:
             "" Statement "ENDMETHOD" missing.  ""
    I'm doing the following:
                   GET VBRK.
    Please, somebody tell me how I use the logical database in Abap Objects.
    Thank you very much
    Dario R.

    Hi there
    Logical databases whilst of "some use" are not really part of OO.
    If you want to use a logical database in an abap OO program I would create a special class which just does the get data from your DB and pass this either at record or table level.
    Techniques such as GET XXXX LATE aren't really part of any OO type of application since at Object Instantiation time you should be able to access ALL the attributes of that object.
    As far as OO is concerned Logical databases are a throwback to "Dinosaur Technology".
    Since however modules such as SD and FI are still heavily reliant on relational structures (i.e linked tables etc)  then there is still some limited life in this stuff but for OO try and solve it by another method.
    If you really must use this stuff in OO then do it via a FMOD call and save the data in a table which your method will pass back to your application program.
    You can't issue a GET command directly in a method.


    Hi Friends,

    HR Logical Databases
    In Human Resources (HR), the following logical databases can be used as a data source for HR InfoSets:
    By selecting a logical database, you determine the HR data that can be reported on using an InfoSet.
    Logical Database PCH
    This logical database generally enables you to report on all HR infotypes. However, you are advised not to use this logical database unless you want to report on Personnel Planning data.
    Logical Database PNP (or PNPCE)
    Use logical database PNP to report on HR master data. It is possible to use logical database PCH to access this data, but PNP meets such reporting requirements more quickly because it is best suited to the task of selecting persons.
    Logical database PNP enables you to access HR master data and infotypes from Personnel Planning. For example, you have the following options:
    Reporting on the costs, number of attendees booked, and instructor for a business event on which an employee is booked
    Reporting on working time and planned compensation for a position that an employee occupies
    Reporting on the validity and proficiency of a qualification that an employee fulfils
    From a technical perspective, this means you can use PNP to report on all of the infotypes that exist for objects (infotype 1000) that have a direct relationship (infotype 1001) with the Person object.
    The ability to access infotypes from Personnel Planning using logical database PNP is a special feature that you can only use in the context of SAP Query and Ad Hoc Query. You cannot use this functionality for ABAP reports you programmed yourself.
    You can also use logical database PNP to report on data from Personnel Time Management (infotypes 2000 to 2999) and Payroll (special payroll infotypes for the USA and customer infotypes; for more information, access Customizing for the Human Resources Information System and see Payroll Results).
    Logical Database PAP
    Logical database PAP enables you to access data from Recruitment.

  • ABAP-- diff between sy-sy-tabix and sy-index

    Hi Guru's,
    Pleae can anybody expalins me what is the difference between sy-tabix and sy-index(Loop Index) ?
    Because in one case i am Modifyimg the internal table inside the do loop by giving sy-index ((Index of Internal Tables)(MODIFY scarr_tab INDEX sy-index FROM scarr_wa TRANSPORTING currcode. )  in the syntax and in other case inside loop statement i am modifyng same record by giving sy-tabix MODIFY scarr_tab INDEX  sy-tabix FROM scarr_wa TRANSPORTING currcode.) in the syntax.
    in both cases its working fine but i am not getting which one i have to use  where to modify the internal table?

    Hi Henry,
    SY-INDEX is the value of the current iteration. It is applicable for the following programming constructs in ABAP -
    SY-TABIX (TABle IndeX) is applicable to internal tables. If you scroll down in the link which Eddie has given, you will find a more detailed explanation for sy-tabix and which statements affect its value.

  • NULL and Space value in ABAP

    Hi All,
           I like to know, is it NULL and Space value is same in ABAP, if it is not how to check null value.
    Thank you.

    everything is correct though some answers are not correct.
    A Database NULL value represents a field that has never been stored to database - this saving space, potentially.
    Usually all SAP tables are stored with all fields, empty fields are stored with their initial value.
    But: If a new table append is created and the newly-added fields do not have the 'initial value' marked in table definition, Oracle will just set NULL values for them.
    as mentioned: There is no NULL value to be stored in an ABAP field. The IS NULL comparison is valid only for WHERE clause in SELECT statement. WHERE field = space is different from WHERE field IS NULL. That's why you should check for both specially for appended table fields.
    If a record is selected (fulfilling another WHERE condition) into an internal table or work area, NULL values are convertted to their initial values anyway.
    Hope that sheds some light on the subject!

  • Sale order before the regeneration of ABAP report: RSM13000

    Hi there,
    I am just wondering about something.
    After we installed support packages, users could not get any sales order without to get any error message and I we could only see  an error message via SM21 which says:
    Run-time error "LOAD_TYPEPOOL_VERSION_MISMATCH" occurred.
    So after we regenerated the ABAP report: RSM13000 after that everythings seems to be ok.
    Now the question is: When we try to find the order numbers which the users created  before the regeneration we find nothing.
    What about this numbers? Did they have not been created at all or what hapened? They customer is asking now.
    Thanks in advance

    I still do not know. We created them again
