Certification Back to Top

The SAP ABAP Certification ensures you know planning, production and measurement techniques needed to stand out from the competition.

Originally developed in the 1980s, ABAP is a high-level, fourth-generation programming language designed by SAP that is used by developers to customize SAP ERP platforms. ABAP helps to customize workflows for materials management, asset management, and more.

The syntax of SAP ABAP is similar to the programming language COBOL, which was developed in the 1950s and is still in use. COBOL (Common Business Oriented Language) is clearly based on the natural language and is used in particular for commercial applications.

ABAP is like an ocean. You can learn the basics within 2 or 3 months, but each requirement will be challenging in ABAP coding as each lock has a different key. You can learn the syntax of programming easily, but writing the logic programming and using it practically, can take time.

It is worth learning when used in the context of other applications like ABAP for HANA, ABAP for S4HANA, ABAP for BW, ABAP for BPC , ABAP for CRM etc. But as a standalone tool it is struggling. For any technically educated/qualified guy, it is the main entry point and hence this ABAP space is now overcrowded.

Uplatz online training guarantees the participants to successfully go through the  SAP ABAP Certification provided by Uplatz. Uplatz provides appropriate teaching and expertise training to equip the participants for implementing the learnt concepts in an organization.

Course Completion Certificate will be awarded by Uplatz upon successful completion of the SAP ABAP online course.

Career & Jobs Back to Top

The SAP ABAP draws an average salary of $111,000 per year depending on their knowledge and hands-on experience.

SAP ABAP is a tool best for programmers and developers. It is far better than other languages, even JAVA. SAP's default programming language is ABAP which is why companies prefer ABAP. Other than this ABAP offers highly dependable and accessible management.

This is also the standard within SAP to create Fiori applications, which means that thousands of SAP developers use ABAP RAP every day, so it makes sense that you as a partner or customer also become familiar with it, as this is the way to build new or extend existing Fiori applications.

Presently, SAP works for the most prominent performer in the data analysis and business intelligence fields. The valid SAP HANA course programs provide you the complete understanding of all the essential skills and make you a full packed SAP professional.

Note that salaries are generally higher at large companies rather than small ones. Your salary will also differ based on the market you work in.

To describe the logical structures of the objects that are used in application development ABAP 4 data dictionary is used. It is also used to show the underlying relational database in tables.


3) Explain the difference between pool tables and transparent tables?

Transparent tables: It has one to one relation with the table in the database. Its structure corresponds to single database field.

Pooled tables: It has many to one relation with the table in the database. Pooled tables are stored at the database level.

a) Basic List: For simple reports

b) Statistics: For Percentage, Average etc.

c) Ranked List : For analytical reports


4) What do you mean by BDC (Batch Data Communications) programming?

It is an automatic procedure to transfer large or external data into SAP system. 'Queue file' is the central component of the transfer, which receives the data through batch input programs and groups that are associated into 'sessions'.

There are 3 functional modules which are used in sequence to perform data transfer successfully using BDC programming. They are





8) What is a foreign key relationship?

To ensure the consistency of data, foreign keys are used. The relationship established between the tables and must be explicitly defined at field level. Data entered should be checked against the existing data to ensure that there is no contradiction. Cardinality has to be specified while defining foreign key relationship.


9) In ABAP what are the differences between table and structure in data dictionary?

The difference between structure and table is

16) When do we use End-of-selection?

End of the selection event is mostly used when we are writing HR-ABAP code. In the HR-ABAP code, data is retrieved in the start of selection event and printing on the list and all will be done at the end of the selection event.


17) Mention the difference between ABAP and OOABAP? In what situation do you use OOABAP?

ABAP is used to develop traditional programs in R/3, while OOABAP is used to develop BSP/ PCUI applications and also anything that an involved object oriented like BADI's and SmartForms etc.
