Re: Historical Certificate of Analysis (QC20 vs QC31)

Typically the COA is issued via n output message from the delivery. At that time you set the output up so that the COA is immediately archived. You can then reprint it at anytime via the delivery number. This is all pretty standard SAP. Archiving at the time of producing the COA is the only way to e...

Re: Odd American Behavior?

Vic, What you described is a winner "at all costs". Cheating, lying etc.. I'm a big believer in Karma and that good guys actually do finish first. And to an extent, religious in a manner that what karma doesn't address here in this life, shall be addressed in the next life. Winning at all costs shou...

Re: Odd American Behavior?

Martin, Here's a blog I wrote a few years back in SCN: http://scn.sap.com/community/erp/operations-qm/blog/2012/02/02/sap-culture-shift--post-go-live-processes I actually talk about some cultural differences there. Sooo.. I have to ask, since you pointed it out. You said that the Germans do jack unt...

Re: Odd American Behavior?

Wow.. You must be having a bad year there Martin! Or you're getting really cynical in your old age! Thanks Vic and Bryson for sticking up for us! Well, to tell you the truth Martin, you might have some good points. But I don't think they are all American in nature. Having worked on several internati...

Re: Best-before date field

On an 01, the best_before date or SLED (Shelf-life expiration Date in SAP terminology), is calculated at the time of GR. It is dependent on the material master data maintained, some config settings and what is entered by the receiver at the time of goods receipt. Usually this date is meant to be a r...

Re: Snowden

I think the issue is that theoretically, (that being a key word), is that we for the most part understand what businesses does with our data and it's primarily for economic (profit) reasons. Plus the government is supposed to serve as a watch dog over how this data is used. As in the current wall st...

Re: Laptops and Smartphones banned in Florida!!!

Yep.. a lot if it just comes down to securing the borders and knowing who is here and why. Simple accountability. At least it should be. Enforce the laws we already have. As you pointed out, even the rules around the H1B program and green card process are not followed as they should be. I keep wonde...

Re: Laptops and Smartphones banned in Florida!!!

Martin, The HIB visa won't go away because of the technology companies. No other reason. Companies like Accenture, IBM and other consulting firms miss use this program totally. It's to the point that US citizens won't pursue programming as a career in college because they know they have to compete a...

Re: Laptops and Smartphones banned in Florida!!!

Don't you dare send your rejects here.... Unfortunately I think it's harder to immigrate to Europe than the US, legally and illegally. :( Maybe someday our government will wake up and decide we should actually know who is here and who isn't and send home those who have exceeded their visa's. Wow.. ...

Here's an article from today's Philly papers. http://www.philly.com/philly/news/20130524_Preach_somewhere_else.html We allow a group like this to demonstrate and say the things they do through bull horns on the street.

Re: Laptops and Smartphones banned in Florida!!!

[ The same "happens" here, but nor them nor me have guns, and we cannot start a gun-fight just because we are in a bad mood. And gunfights rarely happen here between law abiding citizens minding their own business. There are always ways to kill people. Just ask that soccer referee in Brazil that wa...

Re: Laptops and Smartphones banned in Florida!!!

The same is true with some 'black' people. They developed their 'own' language and it is difficult to know what they mean. So, they live in a bubble. This certainly goes both ways and I am not sure what the middle ground could be. It's simply that it means people avoid each other. That's not very h...
