implemented using transaction code SNOTE.
Once a note has been downloaded you can read the full details including a description, cause of error, solution and list of objects that will be effected.
It also contains installation instructions, details of any manual changes or pre-requisites which need
to be carried out. You can also see if a new version has been released as well as see if the note is valid for your current SAP system landscape.
