Below is Help documentation regarding the SAP GUI for HTML (WEB GUI client)that includes some of its limitations etc.



The SAP GUI for HTML dynamically emulates SAP transaction screens in a Web browser by automatically mapping SAP screen elements to HTML via the Internet Transaction Server (ITS).


SAP GUI for HTML provides a convenient graphical user interface similar to Web browsers and HTML.

When you use SAP GUI for HTML and you have a standard Web browser, you can run SAP transactions. For each SAP system screen, the SAP GUI for HTML dynamically generates an HTML page with a layout similar to that in the SAP GUI for Windows.


Because of the technical attributes of HTML or the Web browser, the use of SAP GUI for HTML is restricted as compared to the use of an SAP GUI for Windows. Controls with a lot of Windows-based technology may only be partially displayed. The following functions are not supported in SAP GUI for HTML:

  • Drag and drop
    Drag and drop does not work in SAP GUI for HTML. The application provides equivalent keyboard operations for all mouse operations, including Drag and drop.
  • SAP shortcuts
    SAP shortcuts are not supported in SAP GUI for HTML. You can save URLs in the browser Favorite Menu or desktop shortcuts to start a specific transaction or system.
  • Front-end printing
    Front-end printing only works with R/3 back-end Releases 4.0 and higher.
    For more information, see Printing from the SAP GUI for HTML.
  • Font settings
    Large fonts in the desktop display are not supported by SAP GUI for HTML.
  • Context menu
    Context menus are not supported in Mozilla Firefox. In Internet Explorer, context menus are not supported for the SAP List Viewer, as well as for dynpro fields.
  • Field history
    SAP GUI for HTML does not support field history, although does SAP GUI for Windows.
  • Multiple sessions
    SAP GUI for HTML does not support multiple sessions. You can only work within a single session. If you want to work in multiple sessions, you have to logon multiple times.
