How to use Where-Used List in ABAP Editor

Where-Used lists help ABAP developer to determine the dependencies between the objects. Serves as a help guide, by listing the places of ABAP codes where the related object is used. So ABAP developers can benefit from listed code scripts and understand the use of related object. Also ABAP developers can identify who have used the target objects during ABAP development.

In order to call the where-used list SAP application, click on the name of target object where ever it is.
