NW2004 ABAP: Compiling of SAP programs


does anybody know how to avoid the time consuming compilation of SAP standard programs when working with NW2004 ABAP?


I installed NW2004 ABAB Version on my PC.

I can logon to the system and work with it.

When I call a transaction e. g. SE37 the

system starts to compile. This compilation is quite

time consuming.

When I call the same transaction again it is started

without compiling.

That is the standard system behaviour which is fine to me.

Then I logoff and shutdown the sap system using SAP System Management Console.

Then I start the sap system again using SAP System Management Console.

Then I logon to the sap system.

Then I call transaction SE37 and it starts to compile!!!

It seems to me that the runtime version of the

sap programs are not saved in the database.

Everytime I stop and start the SAP System the

programs relvant for a transaction are compiled again.

I extended the space of the database already from 9GB to

18 GB (2 Volumes).

I also run transaction SGEN to compile all programs.

It took 20 hours (the database is filled by 60% now)

but SGEN did not help.

The problem remains the same:

When I start the system and logon the compilation

takes place.

Is there a way to avoid the compilation of programs which

have not been changed since the last compilation?

Thanks for your help
