When you press F4 on any date field the standard calendar opens in order for you to choose a date. When you do not want the user to choose a weekend day or a holiday, you can do it.
Two different type of calendars are defined in SAP, the holiday calendar and the factory calendar.
These calendars are defined in the customizing under :
SPRO -> General settings -> maintain calendar
in this screen, all the default holidays are predefined by country, you can add or delete holiday as you want. I tried to create the Dany's day in ISP but I'm stuck on a small access problem... stupid security !
Because a holiday can be different by country, the factory calendar is stored for each plants, in table T001W, field FABKL.
here is a small example on how to call the calendar :
Code: Select all
CALL FUNCTION 'F4_DATE' EXPORTING date_for_first_month = '20031208' holiday_calendar_id = 'CA' "<<==-- Here is how you point on a holiday calendar * factory_calendar_id = T001W-FABKL "<<==-- ... or a factory one display = ' ' IMPORTING select_date = select_date EXCEPTIONS OTHERS = 4.
Here is an example of the result, a red square marks each holiday.
