How to create a new field in a PLD.

Hi,

We are trying to add some new fields in the collection report PLD.

How can we add a new field called "Customer/ Vendor Ref No." in the repetitive area of the PLD.

We need to mention all the PO numbers of the customer when sending the ageing report to them.

Please advice.

Regards,

Jyoti

    Hi Jyoti,

    Collection report is a kind of report linked to too many tables. So that it is difficult for user to add any fields. You can see all system field is called Free Text but accually database results. The "BP Ref No" should be filled by the text of "Customer/ Vendor Ref No" field.

    If all this field is empty, the simmple solution is using XL Reporter or QLD to create your own collection report. It is only a one time task.

    Thanks,

    Gordon

    Hi Jyothi,

    I believe you want to create a new database field for one of the SAP's Standard report PLD. If so you can go to that reports PLD and create a new field but you can't display the value as PLD works on the basis of Active Screen, meaning it will only display values which are there in the Active Screen.

    So i would suggest you to go for Query and create a print layout for that, or XL Reporter or using Crystal Reports also it is possible.
