    Hi --

    Formulas written in Excell cannnot be Transpoted in BPS..But where as in the case of Bex Macros and formulas we can..

    We do have two types of display formats ALV and in excell in BPS.

    And that is not a reporting tool as BEX.

    Hope it may help you.

    Regards,

    Vishwa.

    Hi Vishwa

    I think you are wrong there ...It has gone in fine for several layouts but some 4-5 are experiencing a problem

    Hi Tom,

    We have often faced this issue.The best solution is to transport the Layout alone.

    Use the Report program UPC_BPS_TRNASPORT_ALL and select to trnasport only the layout.you should be able to get the formulae correctly in the layout.

    regards

    Sai.

    Tom,

    This may seem like a stupid comment but have you checked to see if the excel formulas were put into the layout in the layout definitions screen and not in the layout while executing the layout? Also does the layout have dynamic columns?

    For example, if I have 12 Dynamic columns for the periods of the year based on a variable it would only show up in the layout definition screen as 1 data column but would be 12 columns on executing the layout and thus the Excel Formula need to be in the 13th column rather than the 2nd column

    Hope this helps,

    Mary
