    Hello

    No - you can not create SDSs in SAP EHS without WWI (in the standard).

    There are exits there so you could replace WWI with something else but this development would be man years and AFAIK no one has ever done it.

    Kind Regards

    Mark

    Hi Rishkesh,

    Yes, we can do that with smart forms using adobe with EhP7. But WWI is the standard version which was used by many customers all over the world.

    Go through this thread it will give you some clarification.

    Dear all

    SAP support starting with Enhancement Package options to "replace" WWI. We never investigated.

    I am not aware of any SAP customer using the approach as given in the other answer: "Yes, we can do that with smart forms using adobe with EhP7"

    And based on many discussion with lot of people. I have big doubts in this solution.

    But as you may be know. in other ares of EHS/EHSM now "adobe" is the solution to generate etc. documents.

    C.B:

    PS: may be check:

    Environment, Health and Safety - Logistics - SAP Library

    SAP states there:

    he Business Add-In BADI_ESS_REPORT_GEN enables you to use an individual implementation to generate, display, and print reports without using WWI.

    This enhancement is deliverd with EnPack 3; I am not aware of any kind of "on top" solution with EnPack 7(but Enhancement Package as ar "cumulative"

    Last PPS:

    I have no idea about the meaning of this part: "and print reports without using WWI." of the sentence. I am missing here a clear indication what you use something similar as "report distribution"

    But with EnhPack 7 a solution (using pdf) for GLM reports is in place (but only display ! and not develop ! (according to my knowledge); this solution is discusse din parallel threads.

    • Hello Mark

      only small add on: using thread

      I tried to figure out if somebody have a "better" understanding of the BADI. I never received an answer.

      C.B

      P:S I currently assuem that SAP has this picture in use of the BADI: you still must use "report symbols" in "whatever kind of document";

      Only this would make sense to me (to support e.g. report distribution process) as anythign in EHS is "optimized" for use of report symbols; so my assumption is:

      Some "frame"work must be used (e.g. topic of generation variant etc.) and yo must have a link to a "template" but this template is not generated using WWI....

      According to my understanding: you still have the need to "create a report" whcih will show up in "report tree". So may be report distrinution wll be possible (a syou need here the "final report symbols"
