MSDS extract not displaying revision date and version ?

Hello Experts,

Our Customer would like to have the ability to batch (i.e. pull multiple documents from the system at once) SDSs from SAP to an external folder. We are using Program YEHS_MSDS_Extract which get s the Data from table ESTDH and document from DMS and check out the document to External drive,

We are facing issue as none of Parameter symbol such Revision Date, Version are found on document see below screen shot

in contrary if i open the same document in CG54 i can see (highlighted below), system dynamically populating in word while executing from Cg54

where as in data base table where document is stored or say accessing via DMS (CV03) this comes blank.

Question - How to have this date filled or is there is another way to extract the document which gives same out put as CG54 ?

Any help appreciated.

    Dear Gopi

    topic has been discussed very often. In last two years interest here was not so high. There is no need to use "Z Report". E.g. check:Bulk MSDS Download

    Using "Z Report" you will always have issues with parameter symbols or you need to prepare clever blue print to acoid this (and then do prepare corresponding programming)

    The Version etc. is not stored in DMS tables. They are part of ESTDH.and other similar tables.


    PS: it is strongly recommended to´check SAP online help and the options to "Export" MSDS/SDS using SAP approach; this is the right approach to use and SAP standard and used regarding many purposes

    PPS: regarding the same topic you will find as well many documents not only on SCN. E.g. EHS report exporting in PDF - Toolbox for IT Groups

    E.g. document: SAP EHS Management for Beginners

    references toa lot of "similar" threads (but there are to many of the "same" kind !)

      HI Gopi,

      If you get a PS file instead of a DOC file please check your EHS customizing.

      You should be able to switch from PS to DOC. (I think the Business-process should be DOK-X Export).
