How Do I Turn Off Scripting in SAP?


Larry Thompson

In this tutorial, we will guide you on how to turn off scripting in SAP. Scripting allows users to automate tasks in SAP using Visual Basic for Applications (VBA).

However, there may be situations where you need to disable scripting for security reasons or to troubleshoot issues. Follow the steps below to disable scripting in SAP:

Step 1: Open SAP Logon

To begin, open the SAP Logon application on your computer. This application allows you to connect to different SAP systems.

Step 2: Select the System

Select the system for which you want to disable scripting from the list of available systems in the SAP Logon screen. Click on the system name to highlight it.

Step 3: Click on “Properties”

Once you have selected the system, click on the “Properties” button located at the top of the SAP Logon screen. This will open a new window with various options.

Step 4: Go to “Security” Tab

In the properties window, navigate to the “Security” tab by clicking on it. This tab contains security-related settings for the selected system.

Step 5: Uncheck “Enable Scripting”

In the “Security” tab, look for an option called “Enable Scripting.” It is usually located towards the bottom of the tab. Uncheck this option by clicking on it.

Note: Disabling scripting will prevent any VBA scripts from running in this particular SAP system.

Step 6: Save Changes

After unchecking “Enable Scripting,” click on the “OK” button at the bottom of the properties window. This will save the changes you made to the system’s scripting settings.

Step 7: Restart SAP

Finally, close the properties window and restart SAP Logon. This will ensure that the changes take effect.

By following these steps, you have successfully turned off scripting in SAP for the selected system. Remember that this change only applies to the specific system you modified, and other systems may still have scripting enabled.


In this tutorial, we learned how to disable scripting in SAP. We went through the steps of opening SAP Logon, selecting a system, accessing its properties, navigating to the security tab, unchecking “Enable Scripting,” saving changes, and restarting SAP Logon. By disabling scripting, you can enhance security or troubleshoot issues when necessary.

Remember to exercise caution when disabling scripting as it may affect certain functionalities or automation tasks in SAP.
