Layout for GLM is not saveable

Hi specialists,

For GLM we have a new template which contains more Information than usual.

We tried to import this template via CG34 in the next system. While trying to save the system reacts with the message DP 465 and the save process fails.

After correcting some customizing in out sandbox the error appears still. Detailled Debugging shows that the upload from the embedded word into the later DRAO structure creates an internal table with ca. 46000 lines. Unfortunately one object can only contain 9999 lines (Due to Limitation of DRAO-ZAEHL as NUMC/4 field). SAP recommends us to install KPRO to save the layout. Until now we never had any issues with layouts and for raw reports the compressing mode is activated hence no issues either. But this is not available for SBV documents.

I don't want to install KPRO for just one layout which doesn't work.

Does anybody have an idea how I can resolve this issue without installing KPRO?

Best regards,

Gernot

    Dear Gernot

    check if you can "separate"/"Split" WWI layouts parts. As you might know. we can use now "Includes". That means:

    You might have one "big" WWI layout. This laoyut has reference to a number of "includes". any include is a "seperate" SBV document

    Second. Can you simplify your layout? we are now using GLM for such a long time: we never ever have seen a similar issue (same in other WWI areas)

    Hello Gernot,

    I recently ran into the same issue - but for uploading a vendor MSDS as PDF. But I remember that this was the case for files being bigger than - I think it was 50 MBs.
    For a WWI Layout that is quite a lot of data! Even all the EU SDS Chaperts together (Inlcuding the Annex) are only ~15MB.

    Why is your WWI Templates so unusual big - do you have graphical elements logos on it as graphic?
    Could you replace these graphics with phrases (that contain / link to the graphic)?

    Kind Regards

    Hello Gernot,

    can you simply distribute the template via ALE?

    • Dear Ralph

      can we distribute a template via ALE? And if you: we do we use the "standard approach for downlaod upload? Thn ALE would be really simpler..

      For a released report. yes we can use ALE

      Can you explain please?

      Thanks

    Hello colleagues,

    thank you for all the answers. I have been in Holidays thus I'm just replying now.

    What I found out in the meantime is that the size is 3 MB as doc-file while growing to 115 MB when converted to a rtf which is the Format stored in SAP. We do not have any graphics on the layout but a lot of formatting.

    @Mark: Our GLM Layouts are quite big concerning WWI coding because we use so-called language Switch logic. So we can print multi-language Labels in different languages with the same layout and often just one raw report depending on the input languages.

    I have to ask the layouter from SAP. Maybe we have to include technic for this special Label as well.

    @Ralph: I would have to discuss this as well with the SAP Consultant. But then we would have a static Label. I assume as we touch it and try to save Manual changes the issue would appear again.

    I Keep you updated as soon as I have new Information.

    • Dear Gernot

      we have never faced same issue. May be our lables "are simpler" (even I would define them as "complex").

      For normal WWI layouts the "Include" techniques is always a choice. But labels are not that "simple" and there is a risk that (because of layout) you can not use "include"

      What is surprising is the dramatic increas in filesize for "rtf" conversion. Hereyou may be should check with a "word"/RTF" specialist". I could imagine that by "simplifinig" font etc. topics you will succeed.

      In any case. a OSS dialog might be helpful; may be there is the need to optimize WWI environment and may be SAP can improve so that the file sizeis reduced.

      The "core" issue is a "word" issue. That means: using "doc" you can use "small" files. But rtf is ASCII based and there forebig

      I am sorry. Only for released WWI reports you can use "Zip" variant. This is not possible in combination with layout

      I would be interested regarding result of OSS dialog

    I could copy component by component (partly form other layouts but having same coding) into another layout with textboxes and now I could save it. Now we have the guess that during the saving process in the original document the Settings for saving were

    'Embed fonts in the file'

    and this is the Problem.

    I will try that for the original file.

    Best regards,

    • Hi Gernot Ditten ,

      What I found out in the meantime is that the size is 3 MB as doc-file while growing to 115 MB when converted to a rtf

      Like Christoph I think that has to do with the Fonts that are not supported by RTF.

      I would propose to change the font in the *.DOC to a standard one (Ariel, Ariel UNICODE) and then try the RTF conversion and see what is happening...
      Kind Regards
