The following section gives an overview of the installation of custom function modules and customization of the SAP System.

The Custom function modules/ABAP framework are delivered as a part of Theobald Software products and can be installed using the transport requests. The following components require installation of a custom function module in SAP:
- Table: For most tasks, the installation of an ABAP framework is recommended or required. Refer to Custom function module for table extraction.
