A big part of working with SAP is correctly displaying the technical names of the various components, screens, and transactions.
This can sometimes be tricky, but with a few tips, you’ll be able to navigate SAP displays like a pro!

Programs, screens, and module pools have a fully qualified technical name that includes the program/screen/module pool number as well as the version. The system also uses this technical name internally.
