Here is a quick tip on how to open a SAP Note by just typing in or pasting the SAP Note number. It is very convenient, when you are reading a PDF document (possibly a installation/configuration guide) and you come across interesting SAP Notes that you want to quickly check.

Create a batch file using your notepad with the following text:

@ ECHO QUICK COMMAND TO DISPLAY SAP NOTE
@ ECHO ----------------------------------------
@ SET /P sapnote=Please provide SAP Note number ?
@ START /MAX iexplore -new https://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/%sapnote%?nlang=E
@ PAUSE

Next Create a shortcut to the batch file and put it on your desktop.

Next time you wish to open a SAP Note, simply click on the shortcut and you should get a prompt like the following:

QUICK COMMAND TO DISPLAY SAP NOTE
----------------------------------------
Please provide SAP Note number ?

Here provide the note number and press the enter key.

The command will fire up a new internet explorer window and open the SAP Note in it. It will help if you have SSO setup for your OSS Userid as you wouldn't need to enter your userid and password.

Hope that helps.

    I use smart bookmark to achieve same thing.

    In Firefox, i created bookmark with address "https://websmp230.sap-ag.de/sap/bc/bsp/spn/sapnotes/index2.htm?numm=000%s&nlang=E" and set keyword of smart bookmark as snote.

    Now i just open a new tab, and enter "snote 1234567" in address bar of firefox. It directly opens the note. You can use bookmark location as "https://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/%sapnote%?nlang=E" too.
