    Posted 06-12-2024 08:32

    Does anyone have a script to add entries to the EDPAR table without it existing the TCODE to enter the second line in the data?   

    Essentially want to add new entry, Save, Back.. then new entry, Save, Back.

    Hi Steve

    We don't provide the ability to go directly to the backend tables in SAP to maintain them.  You'd have to enable some type of edit capabilities for your table(s) in a tcode like SE16(N) or SM30 or a custom tcode or bapi, which is through the application layer.

    Thanks Sigrid... I have a script that adds "new entries" via the VOE4 tcode.  I want to be able to enter multiple "new entries" at once and save them.   Right now it adds the new entry, saves and exits TCODE.  Then Opens VOE4 again and adds the second record.   And so on...  Looking for some way to keep the script from exiting the TCODE after the first record.

    Hi Steve

    Missed that - sorry.  Can you please share what you have?  It should be possible to add new rows in a loop, if that's what you're after?

    click new entries

    then

    (1) add one on the last row

    (2) hit enter (which moves it to the top)

    (3) page to bottom & last page with navigation in case you screen is full with entries

    Put a loop around the above steps.

    I haven't tried it with this tcode, but something like that normally works for what I think you want to do.

    Best Regards,

    Sigrid

    Thank you again for your input.   If I create the loop.... What field would be my header?  

    I have a script that works but need to load 16000 records and it is ultra slow.

    Hi Steve,

    There woudn't be any header fields and that's ok. 

    I just did a quick and dirty test

    So it should work.  Please make sure you do a page to the bottom and then a page down in the loop so that you don't overwrite any entries.

    HTH,

    Sigrid

    Can you show me what your expert view of the loop looks like?  I am getting an error message that External Partner is not an input field.  

    Thank you so much for your help

    Hi Steve,

    Here you go:

    Attaching example, but I didn't do exhaustive testing, so please review and test on a non-prod system.

    Best Regards,

    Sigrid
