Make T-code OB08 Display Only

In this SAP tutorial, you learn step-by-step how to make OB08 Display only with proper screenshots.

Note: T-code OB08 is used to maintain the currency exchange rate.

As OB08 is only table maintenance view that uses t-code SM30, therefore SAP doesn’t provide any specific t-code for its display only.

Therefore if the client needs to maintain OB08 ( Exchange rate ) for displaying only to some users, to solve this problem you can maintain authorization from t-code PFCG using the S_TABU_DIS object

Execute t-code PFCG in the SAP command field.
