Import of Vendor MSDS

Hi all,

We are working with CG36VEN to import vendor MSDS. We want to import a MSDS (pdf format) using generation variant IBM_MSDS and vendor "Ciba"

And we are getting an error saying "Could not create report for specification 1000000000000 variant IBD_MSDS and language EN"

Any idea??

Thanks and rewards!

PS: will award points 😊

    Hi Alberto,

    Make sure the Report category is IBD_MSDS in CG2B (Edit Generation variant) for the Gen variant IBD_MSDS

    If you don’t find, go to IMG>Product Safety>Report Management>Specify Report Categories.

    Create a new entry and fulfill the following:

    Report cat.: IBD_MSDS

    Bus. Proc.: MSDS_DIST

    Rep. applic: MATMASTER

    Report categ. Description: Inbound mat. safety data sheet

    Save and Exit.

    Edit the Generation variant IBD_MSDS in CG2B choosing the Report category IBD_MSDS. Save and Exit.

    Now once again import the vendor msds and check.

    If this dosent work, send mail to my mailid

      Did you upload the pdf file using CG3Z before uploading through CG36VEN?

      First upload into local system then you can import into SAP system. Also check up for proper gen variant and report catagory as sreenivas suggested.

    Thanks for your replys,

    The problem was that the document type for Inbound Documents was not defined properly and that was why it was giving the error message.

    Ram, actually we are not uploading the pdf first with CG3Z and then the Inbound MSDS part, we are just doing it directly from CG36VEN

    The only thing is that the Vendor field is free text. Does anyone know how to manage this field. It will be really useful if I can have a fixed list of the providers in the system.

    Many thanks and regards,

      Hello Alberto,

      The remark end's up in DB table ESTDH field REM.

      You can see it in TR CG54 (and CG50 as well I believe)

      You would need to make a SAP modification - or create a custom CG36VEN where you could implement an F4 help or value check function against this field.

    Hi all.,

    Someone has to make the transaction load by cg36ven?
