SAP GUI Updates Ready to Install - 01/22/09

When Business Office staff logged onto their desktop computers Wednesday, users of SAP GUI and BEx Tools likely received a message from ITaP advertising that an update for their software was ready to install.

According to ITaP, the update will restore users’ ability to select the current day’s date by pressing the F4 key followed by the F2 key. The update also assures users that their version of SAP GUI is the latest available.

Updates can be installed at the user’s convenience, ITaP said, suggesting staff run the update initially on one machine as a way to verify all processes function as expected.

SAP GUI is a program used primarily by Business Office staff to access OnePurdue SAP data directly or through the OnePurdue Portal. BEx Tools, an application that supplements SAP GUI, is used for extended reporting.
