How Do I Enable SAP Scripting in Excel?

Working with SAP data in Microsoft Excel can be a powerful way to analyze and manipulate large datasets. However, by default, SAP scripting is disabled in Excel for security reasons. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of enabling SAP scripting in Excel so that you can automate tasks and enhance your productivity.

Step 1: Open Excel Options

To enable SAP scripting, we need to access the Excel options. Start by clicking on the File tab at the top-left corner of the Excel window. From the drop-down menu, select Options.

Step 2: Navigate to Trust Center Settings

In the Excel Options dialog box, a list of categories will appear on the left-hand side. Click on Trust Center, and then click on Trust Center Settings...

Step 3: Enable Macro Settings

In the Trust Center window, select Macro Settings. Here, you will find different options for enabling macros in Excel.

Choose either “Enable all macros” or “Enable all macros with notifications”. Enabling macros is necessary for SAP scripting as it involves executing VBA code.

Step 4: Access Developer Options

We need to enable Developer options in Excel to access additional settings related to SAP scripting. Close the Trust Center window and go back to the main Excel Options dialog box. Select Customize Ribbon, which is located on the left-hand side.

Step 5: Show Developer Tab

In the Customize Ribbon section, you will see a list of available tabs. Make sure the Developer option is checked. This will display the Developer tab in the Excel ribbon.

Step 6: Enable SAP Scripting

Now that we have access to the Developer tab, click on it. In the Developer tab, locate the SAP group and click on SAP GUI Scripting. This will open the SAP GUI Scripting configuration window.

Step 7: Enable Scripting

In the SAP GUI Scripting configuration window, check the box that says “Enable scripting”. Additionally, you can choose to enable other options such as “Notify when a script attaches to SAP GUI” or “Notify when a script opens a connection”.

Step 8: Save Changes and Restart Excel

After enabling scripting and selecting your desired options, click on OK. You will be prompted to save your changes. It is recommended to close Excel completely and restart it for the changes to take effect.

Congratulations! You’ve Enabled SAP Scripting in Excel!

You can now automate repetitive tasks, extract data from SAP systems, and interact with SAP using VBA macros in Excel. Keep in mind that SAP scripting should be used responsibly and within authorized boundaries.


If you encounter any issues during this process or require further assistance, consult your system administrator or IT support team for guidance.

  • Troubleshooting Tip:
    If you followed all the steps but still cannot enable SAP scripting, ensure that you have administrative privileges on your computer. In some cases, system policies may restrict the ability to change these settings.

By enabling SAP scripting in Excel, you unlock a world of possibilities for automation and data analysis. Take advantage of this powerful feature and streamline your workflow with ease!
