You are provided with a data file - Userdata.xls.
Userdata.xls is a summarized record of user activity on a client's SAP system. Each record contains the following fields:
YYYYMM describes when the user action took place. YYYYMM is useful for summarising user activity by month. TCODE refers to the transaction (option on the menu) performed by the user. TEXT describes the outcome of the action, including its success or failure. Some tcodes are blank. Accordingly, TCODESTAT is an invented transaction code for each action indicating whether the action was successful (-0) or failed (-1). TCD is the same as TCODESTAT, except there is no -0 or -1. TSTATUS indicates whether the action was successful or not (0/1). TCOUNT is the number of times the user has performed this action, with this outcome, in the month YYYYMM. TTEXT is the narrative description of the TCODE.
