7 Answered Test Questions:

1. ABAP has built-in types like C, I, N, STRING, or X. If you use these types for defining data objects, which of the following statements are correct?


• If you want to define a two-byte integer data object, you use the follow-ing syntax: DATA xyz(2) TYPE i.

• If you create a data object without explicitly specifying its type, it will become type C with length 1.

• If you define a data object with type D, two or four digits will be re-served for the year, depending on the user's settings.

• A data object of type STRING has a fixed length that will automatically be set when the first value is assigned to this data object. This length cannot be adjusted thereafter.

2. During an upgrade project to SAP NetWeaver 7.0, you are asked for a strategy to convert the implemented classic BAdIs to the new BAdI type.

What do you recommend?


• Perform the migration of customer BAdIs and BAdIs that are provided by SAP With the available migration tool.

• Use the procedure for semi-automatic migration because of existing differences between classic and new BAdIs.

• Perform a completely automated migration of all existing classic BAdIs with the available migration tool.

• Create new BAdIs because a conversion of classic BAdIs is not foreseen.

3. Among the most frequently used enhancement concepts in ABAP, you find customer exits. Which of the following statements about customer exits are correct?


• If a customer exit is not implemented, the program offering this customer exit will dump (terminate abnormally) at runtime.

• Within one SAP system, a customer exit can have a maximum of one implementation.

• Within one client of an SAP system, a customer exit can have multiple implementations.

• Once a customer exit has been implemented in an SAP system, the implementation can be changed, but it cannot be deactivated any more.

4. A customer wants to develop a Web application with Web Dynpro for Java as the front-end technology and a SAP ERP 6.0 system as the backend.

Which type of external interface do you use to generate a Web Dynpro model automatically with a minimum of effort?




• Web Service

• Java Connector

5. A customer has implemented an enhancement for a transaction by using the predefined customer subscreen. The program contains the necessary plausibility checks for the values on the subscreen. However, from time to time, data fields are updated with values that are not allowed.

What do you recommend to solve this problem?


• Modify all dynpros that use data from the plausibility checks.

• Implement new plausibility checks for every dynpro change.

• Implement the same plausibility checks in the User Exit "before save".

• Implement an additional program to correct the wrong data field values.

6. An international retail company needs a customer-specific list in SAP ERP that shows accumulated order values in a selectable currency.

What do you need to know to create this program?


• Converting factors of source currencies

• Converting factors of target currency

• Source currency of the orders

• Local currency in the system

7. In which case do you decide to create a new ABAP OO class?


• If it deals with encapsulated data of another class

• If it mediates between two other classes

• If it improves maintainability

• If it only contains methods

8. There are basically three types of SELECT statements: SELECT SINGLE, SELECT ... ENDSELECT, and SELECT ... INTO TABLE. The SELECT ... ENDSELECT statement is also known as the SELECT loop.

Below, you will find a list of comments about SELECT ... ENDSELECT. Which of them are correct?


• A work area (structure) is required for the selected rows. This work area can be given explicitly (with INTO) or implicitly (if a TABLES declaration is used).

• The database will transport blocks of rows to the database interface.

• The system field sy-tabix counts the number of selected table rows.

9. The SAP List Viewer, commonly known as the ALV, is a powerful tool for displaying data. Among the various ALV types, the ALV Grid Control is used for displaying non-hierarchical table data.


• The ALV Grid Control can be integrated into a list, a selection-screen, and a classical screen (dynpro).

• By default, a column header will be taken from the data element which is used for specifying the type of the column.

• When a report with an ALV Grid Control is executed in background processing, the program will terminate abnormally since controls can-not be addressed in background processing.

• The ALV display is automatically refreshed when the data in the data-base table is changed.
