  • Dear Karthik

    proposal of Mark is the "simplest" option you can think of.

    1.) it is SAP stdanrd

    2.) it is user friendly

    3.) you don't need development

    Just execute inquiry as proposed and use stanbdard options

    If you need the information more than once (that means regularly) the ALE options might be the right choice (here you have an automatism). But other options exists as well

    Hi Karthik,

    You can not use se16 for this because of inheritance / referencing of data.

    You would need to create a report for this using the Specification BAPI or API (Function Group C1F5).

    Another option could be to use the build in hit list in CG02. It displays:

    • SPEC Id
    • NUM-CAS or NUM-EINECs if no NUM-CAS is maintained

    If you search by Auht Grp you can build your own list in Excel.

    Where is Country maintained?

    Kind Regards

      the solution design depends on "clear requirements". Still your topic is not100% clear.

      The output variant SUB_OUTPUT is one of this in EHS which is quite flexible. There is only one "but": the EHS handling always depends a littble bit on data amount. E.g. if you would like ti use SUB_OUPTPUT with more than 1000 specs: you might get "time out"... But for daily "normal" business this output variant can be used,.

      What kind of requirement is now needed?

      First question you need to answer: should teh user do the job?

      Second question: ifanswer to first question is "no" tehn you should think of a "background" job doing something (but teh user must be abled to get in touch with the result)

      So you have lot of options to select

    Dear Mark, Chris,

    Many thanks for all your input. This works. I still need to tweak little bit on output file but my main question is answered. I would build on this going forward.
