What is SAP SE80

SE80 is the most power transaction for SAP ABAP developers where they can gain access to almost every SAP object to create, change and view it’s attributes and coding. There was a time where I would say this is the only tcode you need but sometimes the performance of individual transactions such as SE38 can actually be a bit fast than SE80 if your system or internet is slower. Also when investigating problems you might not have authorisation to SE80 so is useful to know what the other available transactions are.

GUI Support

Inherits GUI attributes from SEU_INT 

SAPGUI 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
SAP GUI for Java supports 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
SAPGUI for windows(WinGUI) is the most popular option and transactions can be run under SAP GUI for Windows.

SE80 window resize Bug – left navigation hidden and can’t be changed

To Fix this bug you basically need to reset the WIDTH and HEAD_WIDTH values within table RSEUMOD. The easiest thing to do is set them to zero so that the values are re-instated, remember to save once values have been updated.

For the changes to take effect you will then need to log out of SAP and then log back in. See here for full step by step guide to resizing the se80 window
