Date rules editor - file format documentation availability

Hi,

In CRM date management there is a feature that allows definition of automatic date determination, e.g. contract end date = contract start date + 90 days.

To access date editor you may call SM30 with view V_TIMERUNA, 2x click on date rule and an editor is launched with XML file that looks like that:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<SAPTimeRule>

<TimeRuleTree>

<!-- Begin of Rule Tree -->

<ruleline>

<!-- Begin of new LINE -->

<AssignTimeExp displaytype="AssignTime">

<!-- Assign time -->

<VarTimeExp displayType="VarTime"

name="RESULT"

position='B'>

<!-- Variable: Time -->

</VarTimeExp>

<MoveTimeExp displaytype="MoveTime" direction="+">

<!-- Move -->

<ConstLocTimeExp displaytype="ConstLocTime"

date="now"

time="000000"

timeunit="DAY">

<VarObjectExp displaytype="VarObject" name="SYSTEM"/>

</ConstLocTimeExp>

<ConstDuraExp displaytype="ConstDura"

duration="6" timeunit="MONTH">

<!-- Constant Duration -->

<VarObjectExp displaytype="VarObject"

name="SYSTEM"/>

<!-- Variable: Timeobject -->

</ConstDuraExp>

</MoveTimeExp>

</AssignTimeExp>

</ruleline>

</TimeRuleTree>

</SAPTimeRule>

This feature is mentioned in SAP CRM online help, but it does not include any details of XML syntax to be used, meaning of tags, etc.

I was unable to find any documentation of this file format in help.sap.com or service.sap.com.

Has anyone come across a specification of the file format to define Date Rules in SAP CRM?

    Hi,

    the document "Definition of Timerules" was placed in SAP Net but I'm also not able to find it there. I will check why the link doesn't work anymore. Meanwhile you can send me an email and I send you the document back.

    Kind regards,

    Berthold

    Hello,

    I'd also like to get the document, but couldn't find any links to it, just a load of requests to e-mail it.

    Could someone please do a great favor to all the CRM community and post the document to a web site and point us to the site.

    If not possible, please e-mail me on hemmu@hotmail.com
