Something about Support Packages

What SP or SPS is? It is a collection of software corrections (SAP Notes) consisting of the best combination of aligned support packages and patches for a certain release published on quarterly basis.

I was asked to find the newest level of Support Package (SP) for client’s SAP BW system. Since SAP introduced Support Package Stacks (SPS) this gets little bit difficult. While you click at -> Product Information SAP NetWeaver 7.0 - BI -> Support Packages ->
then you choose:
Support Package Stack Schedule -> Support Packages and Patches -> SAP Support Package Stacks -> SP Stack Information -> then follow main NetWeaver release e.g. SAP NetWeaver 7.0

You will get just the version of SPSs but not SPs. If you want to see SPs which may differ because SPSs is valid e.g. for whole SAP NetWeaver 2004s for particular component of it e.g. BI there can be higher version of SP. There is a nice page where you can directly find SPs which you are interested in:

Just replace with the component that you need e.g. SAPKW70013.
