When I create user accounts on SAP systems, can I create user accounts and set the authorization on these accounts in such a way that the user can only access (read/write) some files, for examples he/she can only access the files with the prefix abc_*?

If you've any idea about this, please help.

Thanks a lot,

As files are not usually used in SAP this seems a very strange wish.

However i think the direct answer is no.
The SAP authorisation concept is based around ideas that a user can only access objects based on their organisation. Ie Plant, Company code etc rather than any physical filename.

Hi jonvaughan:

Thanks a lot for your comment. Also excuse me for questions if you think that it is trivial to you.
For examples. when I created aan ABAP program, say program Z_ABC1. this program is created and by some way embedded into some object. If I'd like to look for the object that is created for this program, is it possible? What is the name of the object that contains this program?

Thanks a lot,
