    Hi Suresh,

    symbols are the place holders in report template. for ex - if you are dealing with the report which have different languages, this can be possible by using the same symbol and the driving factor would be generation variant and customer master language (incase of cover sheet templates).

    3 different symbols -

    specification symbols - deals with the data, related to specification work bench. more blindly you can say the data would be specific to SAP EH&S module.

    Parameter symbols - the data from other sap components like sales and distribution, Material management, etc.,

    Descriptor symbols - Not relevant to any module, the phrases can be maintained in phrase management and can call them, whereever necessary

    for ex - you would like to maintain the below message in all your reports as footer. (there is no place holders for this kind of general data in SAP database)

    "The information contained in this message, confidential and is intended only for the use of the individual and/or entity identified in the address of this message. If you are not an intended recipient, please notify the sender and delete and destroy this message."

    find the link for more detailed -

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_erp60/helpdata/en/a7/2874ff0a6c11d28a220000e829fbbd/frameset.htm

    for your 2nd question about the company details in report template -

    this can be deal in 3 ways,

    as mentioned above with descriptor symbols, which have the phone no.s and addresses maintained as phrases.

    or from the entirprise structure, where we have maintained the company details like phone no. address, etc.

    or you can add the directly to the report templates (as MS word application), without using any symbols. if business not diversified with different company codes.

    GLM - Global Label management, deals with label creation and printing for shop floor purpose, material moment purpose, transportaion purpose. the concept is to built a label - which have the details about the product. especially more beneficial by dealing with hazardous and safety related symbols and multiple language options.

    This solution have more success because, integrated and live data base to dealt with.

    you can find coupld of threads related to GLM -

    Hi Suresh

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_erp2004/helpdata/en/b3/75a580b0b411d5993800508b6b8b11/frameset.htm

    • Symbol Type “Parameter”

    Symbols of symbol type Parameter reference data that does not belong to the SAP components specification management, phrase management, and Recipe Management.

    • Symbol Type “Specification”

    You use symbols of symbol type Specification to insert the following data from the SAP specification management component:

    · Characteristic value

    · Graphic, phrase, or code of a phrase-related characteristic

    Note

    For a characteristic you can output the user-defined texts of a user-defined text type you specify using the environment parameter PHRASE_SEE_FREETEXT. For more information, see the IMG activity Specify Environment Parameters.

    · Value of a table field for the SAP component Recipe Management

    Note

    Symbols for the SAP component Recipe Management belong to the symbol type Specification for technical reasons.

    • Symbol Type “Descriptor”

    Symbols of symbol type Descriptor refer to phrase texts and phrase-related fields (phrase codes, graphics, and so on) of the SAP phrase management component. You use this symbol type to insert language-independent, standardized text modules into your document template.

    Regards.
