Hi, is someone still using this? It looks really promising to me. However, if I want to test it, it does not work. I can provide better descriptions, if someone is willing to listen and answer. :D

bienmexicano: As far as I know, SAP GUI is downward compatible, so there should be no problems in theory... Also, on the last page, someone stated that he uses it with 710 without problems. Btw: Where can I find out the version of my Gui?

On to my topic now:

I am really happy I found this UDF to control SAP, but sadly I cannot get it to work yet. I tried to execute the example from the first post and it really connected to my SAP, then I got this AutoIt Error:

Line 188 (File "~\Include\SAP.au3"):

$sap_session.CreateSession

$sap_session^ ERROR

Error: Variable must be of type "Object".

What does this mean? May I have to adjust some code to better suit my SAP installation? I don't know, I am new to AutoIT and automating SAP, also just using SAP as a user. But I can see for example, the name of my standard SAP menu is not just "SAP Easy Access" but followed by the name of my employer. Maybe I should try and change this in sap.au3

edit: No, when I check sap.au3 it clearly states:

The window "SAP Easy Access" is used if one isn't provided. This may be a substring of the full window title.

Therefore, it should be able to find the window, even if the title is longer than that.

Now, are my assumptions correct? Or what am I missing? How can I solve this?

Please point me to any possible errors, as I am new to AutoIt and eager to learn. :D

Hi Azeon. I hadn't heard of "Create Support Message" before. I went to Google and did a search, and I see that it can be accessed via the Help -> Create Support Message menu item in the SAP client. When I do so however, I get the following SAP information popup:

Customizing for feedback functionality missing

Most likely because I am in a testing environment, and this feature has been disabled.

Sorry I can't help :)

Yes it should work with v7.10, but I haven't used this version myself.

To get the version of your SAP client, go to the SAP Logon window, and click the button in the top-left corner of the window, and click About SAP Logon....

Mine displays this kind of information:

Name............: saplogon.exe

Description.....: SAP Logon for Windows

Product version.: 640 Final Release

File version....: 6404.4.17.1016

Build number....: 814550

Hi Kebap,

The problem would appear to be in your script. You haven't posted your script, but I can tell from the error (Line 188 (File "~\Include\SAP.au3")) that you are trying to call the _SAPSessCreate() function in your script. If you look in the Remarks section of this function, you'll see it says:

A prerequisite is that the function "_SAPSessAttach" has already been executed.

You will need to call _SAPSessAttach() prior to calling _SAPSessCreate(), because _SAPSessAttach() is the function that makes the first connection to the SAP client. If you call _SAPSessAttach() without any parameters, it will look for a window named "SAP Easy Access" only. If your window isn't named this (as you say it has the name of your employer), then you'll need to provide this value. For example:

_SAPSessAttach("SAP Easy Access - The World Bank")

It looks like you are trying to write a script that simply opens another session. Here is my example. Maybe it matches your script?

#include <SAP.au3>

_SAPSessAttach()
_SAPSessCreate()

This works for me. If you continue to get errors then you may not have SAP GUI Scripting enabled in your client? Go back to the first page of this topic, and follow the steps in the REQUIREMENTS section to make sure you have scripting enabled. Without it enabled, the SAP UDF won't work.

Hi Sean, thank you very much for your reply!

You are right, I forgot to mention what script I was exactly trying to use... d'oh.

All I was trying to execute was your example script "_SAPSessAttach.au3" provided in the first post.

Funny you assume, I should call _SAPSessAttach() prior.

Now I am new to all this AutoIt, but this seems not reasonable.

Now I tried your new 3 line example script, to the same effect.

First my SAP asks me if it is okay for a script to connect to SAP GUI. I click okay.

Yeah, I did not turn off these notifications yet, due to debugging and general getting to know all of this.

All of this until now even happens if I do not explicitly add the name of my employer to the window title. But I also did try that.

Then a long time nothing seems to happen at all (~10sec)

Afterwards, that aforementioned error message is displayed.

Yes I have scripting turned on in my Sap Client.

I am using this version of SAP:

Product version.: 710 Final Release

File version....: 7100.2.7.1038

Build number....: 971593

Please tell me any more questions or suggestions you may have, as I am eager to master this, but got too little info to dig into it myself.

Hi Sean!

First of all, great UDF! ;)

I'm trying to use it, but getting no results :/

Here is my code:

#include <SAP.au3>

_SAPSessAttach("SAP Easy Access")

_SAPObjValueSet("tbar[0]/okcd", "XD02")

_SAPVKeysSend("Enter")

sleep(1000)

_SAPSessAttach("Cliente modificar: 1ยช tela")

_SAPObjValueSet("usr/ctxtRF02D-KUNNR", "123456")

Here is screen:

Posted Image

What I'm doing wrong? (I've already tryed to use without _SAPSessAttach and _SAPObjSelect)

Also, I discovered that script tool from SAP (the "macro recorder"). Great tool!

I will first try to use just 'AutoIt + SAP UDF' then all 3 of them! :)

Hi all!

Is anyone still reading this who would like to try and help us with our problems?

Any help is greatly appreciated! ;)

Greetings everyone,

I'm sad to say that I no longer have access to a SAP environment that I can use to further develop this UDF ;)

I knew the day would eventually come. I first layed eyes on SAP back in Jan 2008, and after nearly a year of using it manually (as frustrating as it was at times), I eventually discovered how to incorporate it's GUI Scripting capability into AutoIT, and the UDF was born.

The UDF has been great, and has helped me enormously in my day job working in IT. I'm now working for another client using different products.

If my work does take me back to SAP, then I dare say that there will be a need to pickup where I left off with this UDF. Whereever there is SAP I think there is a need for automation. It's one of those products that can very tedious to use at times.

Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments and positive feedback. It really spurred me on, and drove me to invest more time into this UDF.

Sean.

Thanks again for the UDF Sean!

It's too bad under the circumstances.

Kebap,

I'm getting an error message on a similar style screen.

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include\SAP.au3 (446) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:

$sap_session.findById("wnd[" & $sap_window_num & "]/" & $object_id).text = $object_value

$sap_session.findById("wnd[" & $sap_window_num & "]/" & $object_id)^ ERROR

I have a feeling that there's a problem with the window titles, because the rear window title is the same as the foreground window title it can't find the object (or text box) to input the data you're trying to put in.

This is where i've always gotten stuck, if the window title is different I'm fine.

Sean, I know you don't have SAP but maybe you can recall off the top of your head are there any tricks to having two window called the same thing?

Firts post. Yey! ;)

First I need to thank you seangriffin for this great project!

I've been playing with it and worked great so far.

I ran to one big problem thought. Some scripting objects are dymamic and get chnaged for every SAP session.

Here's object I need to handle,

/app/con[0]/ses[0]/wnd[0]/usr/subSUB0:SAPLMEGUI:0015/subSUB0:SAPLMEGUI:0030/subSUB1:SAPLMEGUI:1105/txtMEPO_TOPLINE-EBELN

The problem is first SAPLMEGUI. It's value changes for every session. It's always get value between 01 and 20.

I'm getting value from it with _SAPObjValueGet() but for next session code wont work as there are different SAPLEGUI value... :evil:

Is there way to firts find out correct SAPLMEGUI, something like _SAPObjExist()?

Cheers!

Hi I'm a friend of seans (in the real world) and ironically

i've been pulled into the SAP vortex..

This forum has moved to :

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=107000

please note to get the SAP UDF to WORK

you must also in the 'customise layout menu' of the SAP easy access GUI ..not have the 'Script Recording and playback' menu greyed out

which means server scripting is turned off.

To confirm this further whether you have server scripting turned off..

go

SAP easy access GUI -> customise layout menu - > Script development tools -> Troubleshoot SAP GUI -> Scripting at the server is disabled!

thanks to the SAP wizard (GUI 710) - he quickly tells you what you can't do!

if server scripting is turned off

you will get the error

Unable to find the window with title "SAP Easy Access" to attach to.

C:Program FilesAutoIt3IncludeSAP.au3 (446) : ==> Variable must be of

type "Object".:

$sap_session.findById("wnd[" & $sap_window_num & "]/" & $object_id).text =

$object_value

$sap_session^ ERROR

to turn on gui scripting use transaction rz11 talk to your sap system support, not sure the actually paramter name to set..sry.

if you want to find more about SAP GUI scripting

Hi Sean,

I am new to AutoIT. I want to do the following things in SAP using AutoIT.

1. To handle the Mouse Click Events.

2. To enter the Key Board Combinations which includes Function Keys.

For Eg: I Would like to do the key cominations like Control + Shift + F10 from Dictionary: Display Table(SE11) screen

3. To Choose the from Menus like Utilities->Table Contents->Display Table from Dictionary: Display Table(SE11) screen.

Whether it is possible?

Thanks & Regards,

Dear All,

I have record and find out that, these thing does not content in SAP.au3 at func _SAPObjSelect($object_id)

session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/cntlCONTAINER/shellcont/shell").pressToolbarContextButton "&MB_EXPORT"
session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/cntlCONTAINER/shellcont/shell").selectContextMenuItem "&PC"

So, how I can adjust the SAP.au3 and use it.
