Queries about queries (pun intended)

Sometimes shit happens. One receives a work request that seems idiotically simple but the tools provided by the system makes it a living hell.

The Google’d ABAP questions

Don’t work with attachments if you hate to waste time

I spent all the fucking morning finding relations between around 20 tables, 30 function modules and around 30 programs (with their transaction codes).
