Hello experts,
I'm quite struggling with a date-time problem at Universe (IDT 4.1 SP7)&BO Webinar (14.1.7).

Let's start with customer request:
He needs a Webi report where he can filter by prompt -date and time in separately

For example, if he filters:
Date between 01/01/2016-30/02/2016
Time between 11:00-15:00
He wants to see all data between these dates and time 11:00-15:00

The problem -
In universe -Data Foundation I'm getting from EVENTS table a date-time filed (SQL server) - for example "04:26:47 24/07/2017"
So, on the Data Foundation level (in the EVENTS table) I created 2 "calculation columns"
Date filed - "toDate(@catalog ('RC_Control')."Control.dbo"."EVENTS"."EVENT_TIME_UTC")
Time filed - "toTime(@catalog ('RC_Control')."Control.dbo"."EVENTS"."EVENT_TIME_UTC")

In the Business Layer I created 2 dimentions (date&time)that brings these calculated columns.
Their DataType -Date
On the date filed I'm getting just the date-as I need.
On the Time dimention, on the "Advanced" tab- "Edit display format"-I costumed the format as customer need - "hh:mm"
When I create a query I'm getting the "he:mm" as I need.
Now on BO Webi I created the 2 prompts and here are my problems:
Problem no. 1 : "Time" prompt - I'm getting date only (!!!!). It doesn't recognize the costume I made on the IDT.
I need it to be filtered by "hh:mm" only
Problem no.2 : when I display chosen date filter (by - userResponse("psEnter Value for date (start):") I'm still getting the …

I am using Sybase ASE 16.0 & 15.7.
Is there any way to disable automatic truncating some of monitoring tables (monSysSQLText, monSysStatement) after SELECT operation? It will make my work a lot easier. I found only a note that ASE assumes that DB user don't want to see it again, which is not true in my case.

My extended family runs a small water sewage utility. I'm building apps that will allow us to increase customer service beyond the norm.

We've recently realized with SAP B1 (Blue Oceans) we can provide customer service that is typically only offered by utilities with 1 million plus customers.

My cousin and I will probably get the B1 cert and I'll get the SDK cert. But we don't have my dad's business mind.

My dad simply does not have the time to learn a complex software like SAP so I was wondering if they would make him learn the software or just teach him ideal configuration so he can instruct us.

My dad went to law school and he has a better business mind than some MBAs. If he learned how it worked we could really improve our business.

Can you answer the question and also do you recommend any schools that have online programs that focus on ERPs for utilities (if that's a thing)?

I have the need to get a BOM with all components , currently using Tc. CK86 , but this doesn't give enough information, so I want to do this by SQL, I come from oracle background and dont know how could I get this done in DB2 R/3, I do not have access to query builder or quickview , but i do have read access via SQL, I'm currently trying to figure out a way of getting this info using tables :

MAST Material to BOM Link

Does any of you  have a solution for this?

In Oracle I did something like the following:
	,sys_connect_by_path(msil.segment1, ' @ ') AS "BOM TREE"
	,lpad(' ', LEVEL, '') || msil.segment1 Cod_Component
	,msil.description Desc_Component
FROM mtl_system_items msi
	,bom_bill_of_materials bom
WHERE msi.organization_id = 332
	AND bom.bill_sequence_id = bic.bill_sequence_id
	AND nvl(bic.disable_date, sysdate) >= SYSDATE
	AND msil.inventory_item_status_code = 'Active'
	AND msi.inventory_item_status_code = 'Active' connect BY prior bic.component_item_id = bom.assembly_item_id
                  WITH msi.segment1 = trim(:parte)
        ORDER BY 2

I have fields License Number, Award Date, Drug Action Classification, International Birth Date in a 2*2 grid and all fields can grow. I have another field 'Name of the Product' which is next column of 2*2 grid but the 2 rows are merged. When I set the property fo the field to 'Can Grow' = true, then this layout breaks and below field is overlapped. I also tried putting fields in different sections, but then the layout of 'Name of the Product' all breaks and I am not able to have a layout as per client requirement. Kindly suggest a work around this problem.

Thanks in advance.

Why can not the provider increase the size of the tablespace much more? What does it depend on? According to the image only broadened by 2%
We have an old application that we are in the progress of replacing with a new one.  This is being done by a consultant.
This old system used a fairly basic naming convention but one I believe is fairly standard (perhaps with SAP).  Anything that was customised by us was prefixed with ‘Z_’.  This might be a report, query or a security role.  This was the only naming convention that was strictly adhered to and one we inherited from previous employees and just carried on using.  One benefit of this was that when it came to update time (which stopped a long time ago), we could easily see what was customised and therefore made sure they weren’t removed as part of any update.  There was also a naming convention that wasn’t really stuck to for user roles where further information would be added after the Z_ to perhaps indicate a department or team.

The consultant is in the process of creating reports, security roles etc in the new application but has no plans to use a naming convention, which was a surprise.  Are there any serious usability or security issues associated with not using a convention?  Ideally I would like it to be agreed and implemented asap before too much customisation has taken place but want to make sure it is a point I really need to be ensuring is implemented or one I can forget about.
