Scripts and SAP service packs: We like the GuiXT possibilities but have some concerns as to the work that is needed to test and adjust the scripts for each new SAP service pack.

Normally SAP service packs do not change the user interface. Since GuiXT works completely independently of the SAP ABAP programs, a service pack should not affect the correct working of your scripts.

In any case, no incorrect data can occur. The worst effect would be that SAP changed the layout of a screen and that the GuiXT script now overlays existing fields so that the user is no longer able to carry out the transaction. In our experience, such effects happen very rarely and can be corrected easily after detection.
