Re: Maintain rates use in a report program

First of all, let me suggest a location. TVARVC is often used for this kind of data. Second, since your are running a report, why not just put the field on the initial screen. You can populate it from the TVARVC at the initialization event. Third, if it was changed, you could use use a popup to dete...

Re: Default printer in ALV

Mind if I say YUCK! I knew that SAP read the default printer, but I never imagined that they would bother saving it to the DB.

Re: Default printer in ALV

Ilya,

Can you break on GET and see if there is some place that they are reading a PID? Unfortunately, No, I haven't seen that particular behavior before but I'm interested in what's causing it. I don't spend too much time playing with ALV's.

Re: i am looking For advice

Offer to work really cheap for a year or two to get your experience. Alternatively, if you have another valuable skill, take a job doing that on the condition that they let you ABAP. As a final alternative, hire on with a big 5 consulting firm who will lie to the clients and say you are an experienc...

Re: Custom SAPScript with STD program

Just remember, you only have to change the print program after the upgrade if SAP has made a major change to the process. I would have to disagree with that point based on recent experience with ERP 6.0. I assigned one of my team members the responsibility of retrofitting all 'Z' print programs bac...

Re: Where are maintained the file attachments in sap?

This of course a wild guess. I'd think a cluster table with a glob or blob (I may not be remembering the name of these data types right) data field. I'm equating your attachment to a long text which may not be the proper assumption. Maybe M@t will jump in and give the exact answer.

Re: Downloading reports

SQ01 is suicide. Whether downloading 44,000 pages is worse is a toss up. Now Fish's concern about a Z report is IMO not a problem. Even an average ABAPer can manage to summarize data usefully with direction from decent Analyst. If you don't have a decent analyst anywhere about, that's where the prob...

Re: Program RFSSLD00 not picking correct posting period

I've always used a batch job run overnight to update TVARVC. The real question is: Is the variant actually retrieving the values that are actually in TVARVC? If so, there is no error in the variants operation. It's working exactly as intended by SAP. TVARVC is left for your maintenance. Please let u...

Re: Custom SAPScript with STD program

Just remember, you only have to change the print program after the upgrade if SAP has made a major change to the process. Honestly, I used the same print program from 3.1H through 4.5B. The changes that they made over that time didn't crank anyone's tractor. Just something to consider.
