WEDI SAP TCode - EDI Basis

What is WEDI (EDI Basis) and how is it used? Within an SAP system there are numerous transaction codes (TCode) that each serve different purposes and provide easy access to a variety of different functionality. One such TCode is WEDI, which provides access to EDI Basis SAP screen functionality within R/3 SAP (Or S/4HANA) systems, depending on your version and release level.

Below for your convenience is a few details about this tcode including any standard documentation. In-order to use this transaction within your SAP system simply enter it into the command input box located in the top left hand corner of the SAP GUI, and press enter. You can also add additional command options such /o to trigger in new window..See full list of command options available.

Program Name: MENUWEDI

WEDI Authorisation objects

In-order to be able to use a SAP transaction code you need to have the correct authorisations setup for your user ID. To check if you have the required level of authorisation to run this use tcode SU53 via a new session (i.e. /N). Simply execute WEDI and then execute /NSU53 immediately afterwards. A report of all authorisations checked will then be displayed...See check tcode authorisation for full details and screenshots of how to check what authorisations you are missing to use a tcode.

SAP GUI Support for tcode WEDI

When a tcode is created you can select which SAP GUI it has support for from HTML, Java and the main Windows GUI you are probably most familiar with.
GUI for HTML is not selected
GUI for Java is not selected
GUI for Windows is not selected

WEDI does not support the HTML web based GUI. The SAP GUI for HTML generates HTML pages for each screen of the SAP transaction so that it can be executed within a standard web browser. Please note there are technical restrictions and possible incompatibility issues with certain browsers which means some transaction functionality may not function correctly.

SAPGUI for Java
WEDI does not support the Java based GUI. The SAP GUI for Java support provides more controls than the SAP GUI for HTML, but requires a plug-in to be downloaded and installed on the users PC so is less popular than the SAP GUI for HTML.

SAPGUI for windows
WEDI does not support the Windows based GUI. Windows(WinGUI) support is the most popular option and transactions can be run under SAP GUI for Windows.
