RFC to display MSDS reports


We are trying to set up a website to query and display MSDS reports from SAP. One RFC is to return hitlist from web query, and the second RFC is to display the specific report upon clicking an icon/link. Can I use this function module C12H_WWI_DISPLAY_DIRECT in the RFC to display the report? Will it work or is there a better way to do this?

    Hi David,

    first of all, I have to say that I am not an expert with WebGUIs.

    Second, the task you have at hand is already developed by my GLM team. We offer a web interface for all sorts of reports (including MSDS) as a predefined service. I developed the latest version of it and I'd be happy to give you a demo if you want.

    The technique behind it is a search for the MSDS on the SAP site and a RFC communication using the SAP Java Connector library to the webserver

    The advantage is that you are able to set up a slim and fast JSP site which is easily included in every existing web platform. If you go through the documentation you can set up an easy application within a few days.

    The other very easy way to get data from SAP into your browser could be to use the framework of Success Factors. I saw a lecture recently how to develop an easy HTML5 app. That could maybe be abused for your purpose.

    Dear David

    if you try to "replace" to a recent extent using a "website" CG54 you may be now that you need some parameters to get a really final WWI report. In case of SDS in most cases you need

    a.) a sales organization

    b.) a material number

    c.) a released WWi report

    Normally using the standard CG54 approach you need a local WWi. Regarding C12H_WWI_DISPLAY_DIRECT is (to my knowledge) a good starting point to find a solution to display the report in a website but regarding the WWI "server" etc. I am not "sure". You will find a number o similar threads in this FORUM discussing the "nearly" same demand as in your example.

    May be check as an example
