Determine last program execution


I am looking for a method to investigate when a program last have been executed in the SAP system.

I have not found a good solution for that yet.

Is the solution to use <b>TC</b>: <b>STAD</b> with some program logging switch on? (How do I switch on program execution log?)

I need this to investigate if a program still is in use or not.

And I thought that the way is to do this, is using the date for that last time the program had been executed.

Thanks in advance

Hi Leif,

You can use transaction code <b>STAT</b>.

For writer/painter reports you can view stats via SE16 in table T803J. For all reports and transactions execution info is stored in table MONI. This is the same info available via ST03 and to some extent STAT. Info for MONI is collected from the UNIX servers and totalled on MONI by day, week, month, year. Retention periods are set by the Basis group. We have a custom table where this information is stored by period for historical and licensing purposes. Be sure to use the SAP function modules to retrieve data from MONI.

Also check this sample code from other thread.

* internal tables for use counterdata:

Hope this will help.
