2.2 Settings Tab

The Settings tab is available when a recording is open in the Workbench and appears as follows:

This tab contains the following fields and controls.


The TCODE field contains the SAP transaction code for the transaction that is being recorded. If you are editing a previously recorded file, the TCODE field will contain the transaction code that was used to make the recording. An example of a SAP transaction code is shown below.

Screen Name

The actual DynPro name of the SAP screen is listed in this field. An example of a SAP screen name is shown in the following screenshot.

Start and End Row

The Start and End Row files are used to specify the tables that will be drawn in SAP. The usage differs slightly depending if you are using a Standard or an Excel template. For a Standard template, the start and end rows must be specified in order for the table to be drawn correctly. The start row must be set to '0' and the End row must be set to a value larger than '0'.

For Excel templates, the Start and End rows define which rows in the spreadsheet will be uploaded to SAP. If you set a start row, the end row must be greater than '2'. Please note that the Excel template will set the start row to '2' by default if you do not manually specify a start row. You can also specify a range of rows to be uploaded. For example, if you only want to upload data from rows 7-14, you can set the start row to '7' and the end row to '14'. Only data contained in these rows will be uploaded.

Transaction Type

As previously discussed, not all transactions types are supported by every template. In order for the script to work, you must set the correct transaction type by clicking on the appropriate radiobutton. The available transaction types are as follows.

Note: Please see the Transaction Types section of this document for a more detailed discussion of transaction types.
