How to Scan ABAP Sources for Specific Strings

It is simple to locate a string within a program but have you ever wondered how to find all programs where a specific “string”, or line of text, or object name, is used.

There is a wonderful report which is I use to find ABAP programs related to specific search terms.

  • The Report name is – RPR_ABAP_SOURCE_SCAN 
  • You can execute it from transaction SA38 or SE38.

Some useful benefits of this report are:

You can limit the search range of the programs for example to your custom built developments only for example all programs starting with Y* or Z*.

Tip - Another similar program is RKCTSEAR.
