When the world is moving toward S/4HANA ABAP, Fiori, UI5, OData, Cloud and many more modern innovations, we are showing you the steps to create area menu in

SAP. Why? Simple, because, many of us do not know it yet.

Whether we move to S/4HANA or S/4HANA Version x.xx, Area Menu seems to survive.

Area Menu is a collection of group of logical transactions used in some common business, functional area. For example WL00 is the area menu for Vendor. Just enter WL00 in the command area (where you input t-code).

Similarly, WEDI is the area menu for IDoc and EDI.

Also try VA00, VS00, VF00, ME00 etc area menu.

Step by Step Process to Create Custom Area Menu

SE43 is the t-code to look for the area menu.

For our tutorial, let us create a Custom Area Menu for FI Area.

Provide the name of area menu & click on create.

Give the description of area menu & click Create Area Menu.

Click on added sub node .

Provide the Texts for Nodes & click F5.

Now put the Cursor on Sub Node name and click on Add entry on same level.

Your transactions are added successfully.

Now Area Menu has been created & saved.

Write the custom area menu name ‘Z_FI_REPORTS’ on the command field and hit return (enter). Your area menu would be displayed.

Do you think Area Menu is any different in S/4HANA?

No. The T-Code SE43 exists in S/4HANA.

The Sales area menu VA00 looks like below.

And WEDI area menu looks like this.

To create custom area menu in S/4HANA, we need to follow the exact same steps as demonstrated above for ECC SAP system.

This was a simple tutorial to show that SAP is an ocean. And nobody can claim to know everything. And nobody is expected to know everything. We just need to know where to look for when we need them.
