    Dear Gourav

    please close parallel Thread:

    Coming back to your question: is your question related to a GLM Label or to a "normal" WWI report?

    To print DG symbols is in both cases "special". PLease explain in more detail what you are looking for. Do you think really about WWI or normal SAP SD documents?

    • Dear Gourav

      sorry for late response.

      You need to understand the WWI basic concept. We have to differeniate between "Substance report" symbols and "Paramater report symbols". E.G. In the context of Safety Data Sheet only a "subpart" of DG information can be printed in SAP standard. I do not know any standard symbols which you might can use to retrieve DG master data information but clearly they can only be of type "Parameter". On the top: you need to understand, that in most of the cases you do not have a DG class (many people do believe that there has to be one; but this is not true). Depending on the chemistry you need to simply maintain like: "Not regulated according IMDG" or something like this and in this case no DG label is required. And you need be aware if the fact that the DG class is (can be) different based on regulation. Therefore you need to define: which DG class you would like to print (IMDG. IATA ?...) as in most cases we talk about a "small" label.

      So I am sorry. I believe that you need to create your own symbols in this case.
