Use the analysis functions to check on the actions performed by a batch input
session. The analysis functions allow you to display the transactions, screens,
and data in a session.
The analysis functions do not test a transaction or determine whether it will
Start the batch input management tool: Select
Alternate: Enter transaction SM35. Both paths take you to the session overview
of the batch input system. transaction SM35.
You can use the analysis functions before or
after a session has been run.
Analysis of sessions that have been run
is available only for sessions that contained an error or which were
generated with the KEEP option. The KEEP option prevents the system from
deleting a session that has been successfully run.
You can analyze a session by marking the session
in the session queue and selecting Goto
session or by selecting Analysis
from the session log screen.
For a quick summary of the size and contents of a
session, you can use the statistics function: Goto ®
Session statistics. The advantage over the analysis function is that the
summary is displayed more quickly.
Reading very long sessions from the database can cause time-outs to occur.
For this reason, the system reads sessions for analysis in blocks.
Blocks do not restrict your ability to display a long session. You can switch
forward and backward from block to block with function keys.
A block always contains only complete transactions. A block boundary cannot
fall in the middle of a transaction.
The Transactions analysis tab lists the transactions and screens
recorded in the session.
Screens are identified by the name of the program and the number of the
screen. Statuses are identical to those of the session queue, except that
transactions that were deleted with the /bdel OK code have the status Deleted.
You can display the data entered on each screen of a session by switching to
the Dynpros tab.
Here, you can have the data presented to you in two formats:
The first data display presents data in list format by field name.
Choose this display by choosing Options from the tool bar and marking
the Field list check box.
Alternatively, you can switch to the screen called by the session with
the session data shown on it. Double-click on the screen in the Dynpro
list. The system simulates the screen. No data is processed.
You can switch back and forth from one form of display to the other.
