About variant dependency

Hi experts,

I'm a green hand in SAP, but I'm interested in the function of variant dependency. I want to know how to add formulars in variant dependency. for example y=a*x+b, how to creat this dependency. Also I want to study some basic knowledge about variant dependency, where can I find the basic materials. Thanks a lot.

  • Hi Zhou,

    Warm welcome and thank you for visiting SAP Community to get answers to your questions. I am here to help you to get the most out of it.

    First of all, I recommend that you familiarize yourself with https://community.sap.com/resources/questions-and-answers (if you haven't done so already), as it provides tips for preparing questions that draw responses from our members.
    For example you:
    - can outline what steps you took to find answers (and why they weren't helpful)
    - can share screenshots of what you've seen/done
    - can use a descriptive subject line

    Please also make sure you're using all appropriate tags, so the right experts can find your question. Overall, the more details you provide, the more likely it is that members will be able to assist you. Should you wish, you can revise your question by selecting Actions, then Edit (although once someone answers your question, you'll lose the ability to edit the question - but if that happens, you can leave more details in a comment).

    Finally, if you're hoping to connect with readers, please consider adding a picture to your profile. Here's how you do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5JdUbyjfMA&list=PLpQebylHrdh5s3gwy-h6RtymfDpoz3vDS. By personalizing your profile with a photo of you, you encourage readers to respond.

    Hi Zhou,

    the following link is the reference documentation from SAP Help portal

    Variant Configuration (LO-VC)

    especially the paragraph concerning Object Dependency

    Transaction code is CU01 for creating dependency.

    Code for the example you quoted could be something like this:

    $self.CHAR_Y = $self.CHAR_A * $self.CHAR_X + $self.CHAR_B.

    just write here in case of further needs...

    I highly recommend that you purchase the SAP press book on LO-VC https://www.sap-press.com/variant-configuration-with-sap_2889/ and also join the configuration workgroup (it's free) where there are a multitude of saved presentations on the subject of variant configuration.
