How to Transport users from one client to another?

When a modification is made to a role in the 100 client, the roles must be transported to the 800 client.  One role, several roles, or all roles can be done if needed.  They can all be added to the same transport change request.  After the roles have been moved to other clients, you will need to log on to each of those clients and do a user comparison. You will also need to do a text comparison in client 100 of the appropriate SAP system.
