Hi Gurus,

I am facing problem with reference reports repeating twice for same substance and same genaration varaint.

When i assign a real substance to a real group substance through CG50 transaction the reference reports are repeating twice in the real substance. before upgradation to ECC 6.0 the referenced substance displays only single report but now after upgradation the reference substance are repeating twice for same real group substance and bot the reports and data's are same.

Can anyone please help me to solve the issue..

Thanks & Regards,

    Hello Sunil

    we are using ECC 6.0 and we never found similar problems. We faced no similar problem in our upgrade project. Depending on the release you started: in ECC 5.0/6.0 there is a small "box" in selection screen of cg50/cg54. Only if you select this box you will "see" referenced reports.

    Is there in cg54/cg50 the "reference" symbol per line (combination genvar/language)? How did you start the "referencing"?

    Generally the correct approach is: you "enter" the specifications on report header regarding version 1.0 of the first report. Then by releasing 1.1 etc. the "references" are copied by the system (nice feature). Only if you later need to add further specs in the report header there is a "break" between former released version and the recent version of the report.

    Which scenario do you use? substance master or Material master in cg50/cg54?

    With best regards


    PS: I am not sure if there is really a mechanism available which "hinders" you to assign the same spec to two different report headers; therefore this "referencing" approach is "very" special in some sense

    • Hi Chris,

      Thanks for replying me.

      I found the answer why the reports are repeating twice. Its because of program error. The SAP has implemented one note 1548549-Multiple display of reports in the report tree, after implementing this note we got the correct reports for the specified substance without repeating for the substance.

      Best Regards
