    Enhancements listed under OPS_EHS_CI_1 include:

    Global label management (GLM) now offers an option to use spool management or the GLM print process to print labels.

    Additional details:

    Using SAP Spool Print


    This test case checks whether labels can be printed using printers that are configured in the SAP spool system.


    - To carry out this test case, you require at least one active, configured printer from the SAP spool

    system that you can configure using the IMG activity: Environment, Health & Safety -> Product

    Safety -> Global Label Management -> Transfer and Check Printers.

    - Select the print mode GLM_SAPSPOOL in the IMG activity Environment, Health & Safety ->

    Product Safety -> Global Label Management -> Make Settings for Basic Data.

    - Make sure that the following settings and test data are available:

    - Label layout

    - Label generation variants with assigned layout and label paper

    - Material with label data and assigned substance

    - Make sure that the material has a packaging hierarchy and that the data for determining generation

    variants for each packaging level is entered in the label data of the material. To make this simpler,

    you can enter one generation variant directly for each packaging layer.


    You can access the Label Printing transaction using transaction code CG02BD, or by choosing Logistics

    -> Environment, Health and Safety -> Product Safety -> Global Label Management -> Label Printing.

    1. Start the labeling transaction.

    2. Choose the "Generic" tab page. Enter a material number and choose Enter. Check the fields that are automatically filled on the tab page.

    3. Go to the label tree (choose Label Tree). Check the data that is displayed in the label tree (packaging layers, number of labels, generation variants). Select a generation variant by double-clicking it.

    Check the fields that are then filled automatically with label information, serial numbers, and user

    entries. Note that the serial numbers are displayed only of the layout contains serial number symbols

    and that fields for user entries are displayed only if they are configured in the layout.

    4. Now choose an SAP spool printer from the selection list of available printers.

    5. Then start the print process (choose Print) and check the messags in the status bar. After the labels have been generated, a print request is created and copied to the output control spool request list.

    The spool request number is displayed in the status bar.


    Use the output control or transaction SP02 to check whether

    Dear M D

    Richard was faster. So;: if you use the "full options" then I believe you don't need the tool any more; but this GLM version is quite flexible and really a big "upgrade" (alot of new functions)

      Hi !

      1. To see is that is activated, go to SFW_BROWSER

      2. To activate that, go to SFW5

      (But guess, it should have been activated already !)

    Hello Richard ,

    I assigned one spool printer in the check and transfer printer but it did not show up in the CBGL_MP01. What settings do I need to carry out . Transfer printer functions is working fine and currently it is using GLm Print tool to print .

    • You did not outline the files format issues however, likely related to WWI printer selection. The WWI printer must match the SAP printer you spooling to. You must installed the correct printer drivers on the WWI server, setup a local printer configuration, import the printer into SAP. This is all standard setup of GLM.
