Varied Languages in Label

Dear Team,

This is about GHS Label. Label has R &S phrase in various languages.

Now, depending upon the region of customer, these languages to be varied. For example, below is the case,

There are 3 regions and the language to be displayed on label are as follows,

Region 1

Region 2

Region 3

DE

EN

AU

AR

AR

BD

AU

DK

CA

BD

BD

CL

CA

CA

CO

CL

CL

DO

CO

CO

HK

DO

DO

HN

HK

DO

HN

The format is something like below,

EN - Safety phrases

DE - Safety phrases

FR - Safety phrases

GB - Safety phrases

In general, I have do have knowledge to vary it according to "G" repeating group.

One solution I am thinking about creation of 3 GVs for 3 regions and maintain the languages there. but how to pull the first phrase ( EN, DE, FR) in that case as i wanted to keep only one template.

The simplest solution is to have 3 different template with 3 GVs and get the output.

Somehow, client willing to have it as One template as far as possible.

Can anybody guide me here...

OR Do you know, how to pull the following yellow highlighted data of GV in template. I wish to pull the Text of it viz EN, FR, DE etc..

Kindly Advise.

Regards

Amol

    Dear Amol

    quite tricky topic but cleary needed for many labels.

    Check the examples of SAP as shown here:

    http://help.sap.com/erp2005_ehp_06/helpdata/en/cd/a8661a1f1411d393e7080009b98822/content.htm

    Chapter Example: Repeating Group of Type G

    I am not sure if that match to the demand you have. (according to your picture you should get (if proper WWI layout is used), in my opinion, "immediate" the "wished" result in report)

    Example: if we talk about old EU system (with R and S phrases), then you know that you can have more than one phrase selected. I am not sure how G group react here (according to yoru example): e.g.

    Let us assume two phrases are maintained will you get first an e.g. English "block" with two phrase, then french with two phrases etc.

    You should test that.

    Check may be as well

    or

    http://www.consolut.com/en/s/sap-ides-access/d/s/doc/YP-RELNEHS_SAF_27A_VFG

    Here you could get further ideas how to use "G group" and may be this could be the right approach to go on.

    I have some doubt that you can reduce to one layout; but it might be possible (from business point of view there is no difference in my opinion as the starting point is generation variant and language to create a report. Normally the "end user" come into contact with genvariant only (I am not sure but it is possible, if i remember correct, to maintain a "personilized" hit list of genvar, so the end user can "reduce" the number of genvariants to those of interest)

    • Dear Amol

      may be some further ideas regarding your topic. If we ignore for a moment that you would like to have "AR" as the language (Arabic) according to explantions you need only to prepare the full list of languages in generation variant as shown above. Then inside the laoyut you can prepare blocks (per language according to explanation of Ralph). Now you need only a further input parameter. If you combine that with either proposal of Kamal or if you create a customer specific symbol you check for generation variant (you need only three values) you could try to use a "if / elsif / endif" structure regarding the generation variant report symbol. By using a clever architecture you could prepare three sub layout and include them (by using the new include technique) in one major layout .

      This approach doeas have soem benefit. You can maintain the three layout seperate but the whole structure an be the same. But it is clear that this type of logic is not easy to support (error handling) etc.

      And there is one small but: regarding language "AR" you should clearly prepare a different layout as this is a language written from right to left and not left to right. I am not aware of any option to mix left to right and right to left languages in one WWI report. This is according to my knowledge not possible so that output etc.is correct

      C.B.

      PS: if you need three different leading validity artea sin the generation variant you should use there templates. This is the best approach i believe
