This trick is handy for executing or copying another users Quick View query.  Especially if someone is on vacation or has left the company.  This can also be useful when training a backup and you want to share your Quick Viewer query with them.

This functionality is also helpful if someone is having problems creating an SQVI query and has asked you to look at their query when you have a chance.

As always, my goal is that anyone can use the following information but this is not a step by step instruction manual and will require a good understanding of SAP.

A setting in transaction SQ02 is critical to accessing other users Quick Viewer Queries.  Some companies limit access to this transaction.  If you do not have access to SQ02 then you will not be able to follow along with this document at home.

Important Note: Do not make changes when in someone else’s user group / queries unless they have specifically asked you to.  These changes will be saved to that user IDs Quick Viewer Queries.  If you would like to make changes copy the query to your user group.  See end of Blog for copying query.

A pop up box will appear.

Each SAP User has its own user group for Quick Views.

The Quick Viewer name starts with “SYSTQV”. The user group name says Quick view followed by the User-ID.  In the following example the first user ID is JD101

  • Select the User ID/Group.

Copy Quick View Query from one user group / User ID to another

Copying a Query from one user group to another is a little tricky.

Transaction SQ01

First go to user group you wish to copy query from and document the query name, user group name and the info set.

In our example:

  • Query: OMD0CHECK
  • User group: SYSTQV000575
  • Info Set: SYSTQV000000000000004236

Transaction SQ02

Enter Info Set and hit Role/User Group Assignment icon

Find the user group / user ID you are coping to and select Assigned table.

Transaction SQ01

Make sure you are “in” the user group you plan to copy to.  In this example user group SYSTQV000438.

In this example we will be copying Query OMD0CHECK from user group SYSTQV000575 to user group SYSTQV000438.  In this example we will keep same query name but you can change it.

Select the Copy Icon and a pop up box will appear.   See following screen shot.

  • Enter: From query name and user group
  • Enter: To Query name.
  • The To User group defaults to the user group you are currently displaying and cannot be changed.
  • Hit enter

Query will now be in new user group.  Assumable yours so feel free to change away.
