Before starting any development, it is mandatory to have a package and TR assigned to your user id so that you can neatly collect all your changes in the TR and transport it without any errors. One should avoid collecting objects in the local package unless necessary.
Below are the steps outlined to create a package and a TR in SAP system. You can also check my video below-
Package or Development Class (t-code: SE80) (Role: SAP BASIS)
Step 1: Logon to SAP system (R/3 or BW system)
Step 2: Create Package
Enter t-code: SE80 (Object Navigator)
Select ‘Edit Object’
Select ‘Enhanced Options’ radio button. Then go to ‘Packages’ tab.
Package: Give as ‘ZPACK_SAMPLE’
Note: In SAP system, all customer defined objects will be prefixed with ‘Z’ or ‘Y’
Select ‘Create’ icon
Short Description: ‘Sample Package’
Software component: Home (Customer Development)
Package type: Select “Development package’
Request or transport request (TR) or workbench request (WR): XXXK9NNNNN
where, XXX is System ID
K is Customer Development
9NNNNN is a six digit integer number prefixed with digit 9, and maintained by system.
Every request is assigned with a task number.
Task number always follows request number.
TR (e.g. ER7K900002)
Task No: ER7K900003
Every Task is assigned with objects.
(Tables, programs, DTPs, Infopackages, Process chain Variants, t-codes, function modules etc.)
Note: To view the task number and its objects, Go to tcode SE09 or SE10 and drill down your request – task.
To create a new request: Select ‘Create Request’. Give a short description ‘Sample Request’
and select ‘Save’
Request created: ER7K900007
To use existing own requests
Select ‘Own Requests’
Double click on the required request
Select Continue. Press Save. Then F3, F3.
Result: A package is created and is assigned with a request
