Q and A

I try to provide a lot of resource, link and reference to SAP Basis area. But, I’m sure there will be more questions about Basis since there are many topics and still continues to growth years ahead.
So I provide this page for you who want to submit a question all about Basis and netweaver technology.
I will try to answer the questions or try to find out if this is the new one for me. Please yourself !
