Many transactions have been deprecated in SAP S/4HANA from ERP6.0. In fact, there are too many obsolete transactions in S4HANA to list in this article. One of the frustrations is that SAP does not really provide an easy way of identifying these obsolete tcodes.
In this short article I'll show you how you can find these deprecated transaction codes quickly and how you can compare your ECC 6 with the S/4HANA system.
These obsolete transaction codes in S4HANA tend to fall into the following main areas:
Let’s go through the main functional areas one by one, and then I can let you into a little secret for how to find a list of the transactions by using your ERP6.0 and your S/4HANA system.
You will also need to be aware that although many of these transactions are marked as obsolete in S/4HANA, some of them are still available for use.
The main transactions which are obsolete in S/4HANA around the general settings area are those related to customers and vendors and other partners. These have all been deprecated in favor of the SAP business partner concept. As a result, a whole host of transactions have been rendered obsolete and pointed directly at the new SAP transaction BP.
Here is a list of obsolete SAP transaction codes in alphabetical order:
FD01, FD02, FD03, FD05, FD06, FD32, FD33, FK01, FK02, FK03, FK05, FK06, FK08, MAP1, MAP2, MAP3, MK01, MK02, MK03, MK05, MK06, MK12, MK18, MK19, V-03, V-04, V-5, V-06, V-07, V-08, V-09, V-11, V+21, V+22, V+23, VAP1, VAP2, VAP3, VD01, VD02, VD03, VD05, VD06, XD01, XD02, XD03, XD05, XD06, XD07, XK01, XK02, XK03, XK05, XK06, XK07
As you probably know by now, Finance in S/4HANA has been completely overhauled, and with that comes the elimination of many dozens of transactions. Here are just a few:
The big change here is that MIGO becomes the king of all SAP MM transactions – all transactions prefixed by “MB” have been entirely superseded by MIGO.
The credit management functionality has been overhauled in S/4HANA, and therefore VKM1 has now been superseded by UKM_MY_DCDS.
If you are undergoing a conversion from ERP6.0 to S/4HANA, then I assume you have access to your originating ERP6.0 system, or you have access to the below information from your basis team (if not, you can sign up for our live SAP ECC 6 access here).
First of all, you will need to know the SAP Netweaver release of your ERP6.0 system. To find this, follow these steps:
There are other ways of finding this information, but they are more long-winded. The simplest way is to read the SAP Simplification list for the latest version of S/4HANA. Here is a link to the 1909 simplification list.
Alternatively, you can run the SAP Readiness Check on your ERP6.0 system – that will identify the new transactions in each process, but it will not give you a definitive list.
We've done the work for you already and compiled a list of all new S4HANA transaction codes in an Excel list. You can simply download the entire spreadsheet with all the new transaction codes that are includes in S/4 here:
