SAP DM st1600 Word report footer references issue

Dear Experts,

We are working on creation Word report on SAP DM st1600, the difficulty we’re facing are footers in the document. We need to have three different footers assigned to specific chapters of the document. Problem is that in some of the footers we have dynamic references assigned to pages in another chapters. I have to add, that usually in one footer we need to have two references to two different chapters. Adding disclaimers at the level of the main Word report in SAP DM unfortunately does not return the expected result either. Footers no. 3 for example appear in 2 Chapter.

Does anyone have an idea how to get through this task?

OS: Windows Server 2016 Datacenter


Tool: SAP Disclosure Management 10.1 ST1600

Client software:

  • Microsoft Office 2016

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Jan,

    Not sure on this issue, and you may need to open an OSS ticket, so we can get your files

    In general (as you already indicated), you would have different templates per chapter with different headers/footers

    However, I am not sure how DM could know the reference. For example, in my screenshot above how could you reference something in chapter 2.2.2 from 2.2.4 if these are separate files

    Maybe simplest is to correct the references in the top-level report.
