SAP GUI History (backspace) for fields is not getting saved.


  • – Close all your SAP sessions including your SAP logon pad


  • Go to Windows Start > All Programs > SAP Front End > SAP GUI Configuration (1)
  • In your GUI Configuration options click on ‘Local Data’ folder (2) and then ‘History’ (3)
  • Change history status to ‘OFF’ (4) and click on ‘Apply’ (7)
  • Click on history status back to ‘ON’ (5) and click on ‘Apply’ (7)
  • Click ‘Clear History’ (6) button and finally click ‘OK ’ (8) to close this window

  • Now navigate to C:usersAppDataRoamingSAPSAP GUIHistory (9)
    • If you do not see AppData folder then you will have to enable show hidden folders in the windows folder option menu (
  • Here you will find MDB file which is usually named ‘SAPHistory.mdb (10)
  • Delete this file

Now this should take care of the history not getting saved. Reopen SAP GUI and try it out!
