Upload Transport Files to OS

You should receive two kinds of files:

  • Cofile – file name beginns with “K”
  • Data – file name beginns with “R”

Those files should be uploaded to your OS system, with SAP system installed. You should navigate to your transport files, which is usually located here “C:\usr\sap\trans\“, or if you installed your system in different path, look for the “trans” folder.

Now upload the files to the system the following way:

“K” file to Cofiles

“R” file to Data

Import Transport to SAP System

Go to transaction STMS -> Import Overview (F5)

We are in the Import  Overview screen with all import queues. In our case we will have only one, which is “NSP”. In big companies with huge system landscape, we might have more import queues to different systems. Usually, there are at least three systems. Some companies have quality assurance systems as well:

  • Development system
  • Testing system
  • Quality assurance system 1 (optional)
  • Quality assurance system 2 – with real data (optional)
  • Production system

Double click on NSP row.

We get into import queue of NSP system. To import specific transport, go to Extras -> Other Requests -> Add

Provide Transport Request number. In case that you have tried to import the request, but it has failed, you can reimport it again by checking “Import Again” checkbox field.

And confirm your choice by clicking “Yes”.

Transport request is added into the transport queue.

Select the transport request by clicking on the row and go to Import Request (Ctrl+F11)

Provide Target Client, which is in our case 001 provided by SAP installation.

Leave Start Date as it is. This way we will import Transport Request immediately. It is also possible to do import either in specific date and time or when predefined event will occur.

Lets leave Execution and Options tab for now and click “Ok” button.

Summary popup comes up with all the information which is going to happen. Click yes, and import will start.

Transport request is being imported. To check the progress you can either click on “Refresh” (F5), or for more detailed information choose “Logs” (Ctrl+F4). Logs are useful in case when Transport Request finished with errors.


Transport Log contains all the information and all the steps processed.

If you need detailed information in each step, click on Log Display button in the tree.
