Note 736410: Objects mapped to SAP Application Components

I have been asked many times if I could tell what functional area a transaction, program, table etc. belong to. Each time I did a short onsite or online demo for clients I work as a virtual consultant and created a short documentation. Now, that I have setup a blog, I thought it would be a good idea to document this here so that I can just reference it via a hyperlink.

To look up the application area of an object, use transaction SE11 and enter the object you want to look up. (If you want to do this for a transaction, follow a similar procedure with transaction SE93, for ABAPs use SE38 and so on.

Now, let’s us focus on SE11 and how to find what application area a specific table has been assigned to, in this example table MARC. Click the ‘display’ button and select the ‘Attributes’ Tab:

se11_marc

By double-clicking the package from the attributes screen, you will be taken to the Package Builder screen where the Application Component is visible:

se11_marc_ddic

On the package builder screen, you can see to what Application Component the Package belongs to and also what Software Component the package belongs to.

se11_marc_pckgbuilder

You can follow the very same procedures for Reports, Function Modules, Transactions etc.

Another example for transaction ob08 via SE93:

ob08_trx

The package SFIB is mapped technically to application component BC-SRV-BSF-CUR:

ob08_applhier

You can whip up a query or ABAP to get this information neatly listed in a report:

whip3
