Transaction Codes - Overview

When I started to work with SAP I got really mad about all these non-sensical 4 digit SAP transactions. In the usual help section of SAP, or under tips & tricks, I could not find what I was looking for. Of course, there are many useful lists on the web, but, for one reason or the other, I could not find one overview, which suits my own needs. So, in a "Slow And Painful" (= SAP?) process, I created my own Cheat Sheet (for consultants, developers, users), including the most important SAP transaction codes (functional and technical). It covers SAP-FI (banks, payments methods, chart of accounts, posting periods) Workflow, Transports, Spool, SAP Standard Reports, Jobs and Events, Archive Link, User Administration, Workflow, Batch Input, ABAP, the Data Dictionary, and some other SAP basis items.

Tip: using transaction code SE16, in the SAP table TSTC all transaction codes can be viewd.

Remark: The usual SAP terminology create, read, update and delete (CRUD) is here abbreviated referred to as change or maintain.
