User Entry Report Symbols for SDS

Dear Experts,

we have a functionality called as 'User Entry'. we can defined this 'User Entry' Report symbol at template level or at customization in GLM.

I am pretty aware about how to use this functionality in GLM. Once we defined the 'User Entry' report symbol, the will appear as Use Entry fields in GLM Print Screen ( CBGL_MP01) where user will add or modify the entry and label will get printed.

Now, Can we use this 'User Entry' type functionality in SDS reporting shipping? if yes, how?

means, in automatic report shipping at which point or on which screen user need to add the values to 'User Entry' fields?

How this functions in automatic report shipping process.

can anybody advise me here.

Thanking You,

    Hi Amol,

    As per my understanding, when we create user entry symbol in config, we should provide when this symbols should be exploded.

    if we select at 10, then it would ask at the time of SDS generation from specification

    if it is 20, it would expect from application data before shipping, we would fill this data using

    function module. we can test it from CG50 or 54.

    • Dear Amol

      I did never tried to use this type of functionality in SDS distribution process. The issue is like this:

      you have a "status net" in CVD1 (report distrbution process). Now to enter something (manually ??) (as with user entries) you need to stop the SDS distribution process on a specific status (which one? bundle ??) to do so and then (after entering the data) you need to process to the next step (manually). Therefore we can not "talk" about an automatic process any more (and I have real doubt that you would like to really use it like that). Clearly if the data is stored there could be a problem coming up with "subsequent shipment" as well because the distrbution process will use the same status net and therefore the process would e.g. stop in "bundle" (even if there is no need to "reedit" the data (as mentioned: the data could be stored as an "append" to CVD1 data structures).

      This was one reason why, may be, i "misinterpret" what you are looking for (are we talking really about a manual entry???).

      It is possible to enhance CVD1 to store more data as part of the process in data base (this is a "normal" parameter symbol (that was the reason why i included the "expansion" topic): now if you do not want to maintain something "manually" but you could specify clearly location of data etc. and the data is not part of EHS you need to prepare a suitable parameter symbol as part of layout to fetch the data. Here you need not so "stop" CVD1.

      Check may be:

      Here discussion is ongoing regarding data to be printed in coversheet

      GLm is "different" (can be) in comparison to other WWI processes (including report distribution process). Therefore you can not discuss "expansion time" without knowing the exact set up of GLM.

      Hope I did catch now your demand. To make it short: in report distribution process you have two types of document: Raw report and coversheets. An "user entry symbol" can be mapped in my opinion to a "parameter symbol"; therefore data is there only in final report and not raw report.
