    hi,

    I don’t have license version of SAP software. I using it for practicing ABAP module. I have struck in access key. I have access key generator. If I log-in to system, Status for INSTALLATION NUMBER = INITIAL. because of this I’m not able to generate key.

    Please any one can tell me how to remove it or turn INITIAL into numeric.
    Many thanks for helping in advance.

    Regards
