Changing masterdata for vendors is a process in SAP® just certain users should have access to. In addition to the possibility of restricting access to this area with the SAP® authorization concept, SAP® also provides an option to implement a simple 4-eye-principle for critical masterdata changes.

Over years we successfully established a training series which combines ACL™ analytic tool aspects with SAP® Know How (tables, fields, important transaction codes, accounting and business process details).
An auditor is hard at work auditing a manufacturing plant. He spots one worker at the end of the shift, that worker is always carrying a wheelbarrow covered with an opaque cloth.

The scripting languages list here the sequence of commands and thus form the basis of standardization. Another great advantage of scripts is the enormous execution speed compared to manual processing. The script development requires some experience with macros or other sequential programming languages.

In addition this "Function-Keys" can also be used in the filter and command line. In this post the "Function-keys" of ACL™ are explained briefly.
