    Transaction SPDD is based on the Release Level imported during an upgrade. During the upgrade process there may gave been Data Dictionary changes that need to be reconciled prior to the completion of the upgrade process. SPDD is used to correct these objects which will then create a transport to be used during the Upgrade progression process to QA and Production.

    SPAU on the either hand is used to reconcile repository objects that have been modified by either the customer, SAP or an SAP partner.

    So basically the functions of transaction SPDD are identical to that of SPAU.

    Hope this helps....

    SPAU - is used for Repository Objects Upgradation.
    SPDD - For Data Dictionary Objects Upgradation.
