Go to transaction SWDD. Create a new workflow and save it under your package.

Click on the Ba sics Data button or pre ss Ctrl -f8 and enter the work flow starting event.

We want the work flow to start on ‘CHANGED’ event of Z_VENDOR BO. Acti vate the triggering event. It will be done thru a Customizing Request.
