I notice from the SAP Software Distribution Center there is an "LA Fix" for SP4 on windows.

Can anyone tell me:

1) What is an "LA Fix"

2) Where is the documentation for this fix? - (I've tried the SAP Help Portal and there is nothing in the .zip file itself that I can see)

3) What does this "LA Fix" fix?

4) How does one apply an "LA Fix"


Chris Noble.

    I also raised a SAP Note on this:

    FYI Their reply was:

    "LAfixes (Limited Availability) are typically used only for customer specific scenarios - it's actually a patch thatfixes a single or a couple of issues (not like FP or SP which are consolidated). LAs shouldn't be available anywhere - but if itis then I think because the issue is widespread.

    The LA fix which is available is concerned with ADAPT01131947 PR ADAPT01114355which I confirmed from the CI&E group."

    I can't identify fully what those ADAPT #s refer to - but one of them referes to a bug with repeating scheduled reports not running.

    Also SAP said:

    "And there is no documentation published with the fix as it for a specific customer orspecific issue and not a list of issues like the Service Pack or a fix pack."

    So - they publish an LA on their download site but don't include any documentation.... hmmm anyone else think that's rubbish?

    And anyway - why is there no link to documentation on their download site for ANY of the downloads. Almost every other site from which one downloads software includes links to the associated doumentation - I think SAP download site is VERY poor in this regard.
