Are User Exits too complicated for a new dveloper in ABAP ??

Hi all,

I am a new bee learning ABAP. I have gone thorugh all the queries regarding user exits and all other stuff in this forum. One doubt is for each tcode there will be many exits. Say for me21 there are 38 diffferent exits availble. How do I know which can be used to add some fields to the screens in me21 ? Is there any generic procedure to identify this ? And also where can I get complete documentation or some form of of notes which gives me a brief decsription of all kinds of exit and and their applications ?

Hi Ben,

Just to add to few things:

The other best option is to look for information on OSS notes.

Say for example if you have questions on exists in purchasing then take a look at this OSS notes

320601- Finding enhancement for an exit (in purchasing)

496083- FAQ: Customer enhancements (User Exits) in purchasing.

Just to answer your basic Question.

Nothing is difficult in SAP or in ABAP. Its just you need to do once and rest becomes a cake walk.

My best bet for searching exists is

1). SPRO 2) SMOD 3) OSS Notes 4). Custom tool to pull up available exists ( this does not pull up all of them)
