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 …

other than AOG, anything else can be good for MS SQL on 2 x data center MS SQL configuration/topology ?

Hi All
i'm looking to get SAP certification in "Finance controlling" module,   any advice?
and is ther any online programm
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.
I am using Sybase ASE 16.0 & 15.7.
I am beginner in SAP and ABAP. I must to do program with BAPI_ACC_DOCUMENT_POST which posted account 602101 to 60210101, but tax rate is 0. I have little proglem. Please help me.
If you have data rows like

1.  TypeA.     Control 1.  Answer 1
2.  TypeA.      Control1.  Answer2
3.  TypeA.      Control2.  Answer1
3.   TypeB.    
4.   TypeB.     Control1.  

Where you have three different drop downs
I have a copy of SQL 2008 R2 on a customer site and I am trying to connect a Sybase database to it to query the Sybase tables.  I have tried to understand the Linked Server process.

Can someone tell me how this is done please

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.

I'd like to update automatically the statistics for single table in SYBASE ASE every 3 days.

If anybody had tried updating automatically the statistics for single table in SYBASE, please share the procedure with me.

Thanks in advance!

Hi all,
i have the unenviable task of updating an onliine sales portal made at least 10 years ago, and which links into a customers SAP system.

there are no problems when i am updating prices, but if i need to add items to the page, there is code i obviously need to alter:
onClick="buyItem('5247 BURN AID GEL 50G PK10','6.10', document.itemsform.box10.value)">

The question is, what and where does the "document.itemsform.box10.value" refer to, and can i just add to the box value if i am adding more items? i.e. if box11.value didnt exist, could i add that code to a new item?

thanks in advance

I'm trying to print a PDF from my SAP application.  When it prints to the SAP printer, it's not correctly lined up on the page.  They're designated columns and the text is not in its designated side of the page.  It prints okay if you don't select the PDF format.

I've attached a file that we use to set up a default SAP printer

So wht should I do?

I want to create a new mapping for the DWH model. Currently the table that I want to map exists at model A but I want to "use" as it comes from model B in order to map it to DWH.
 With that way I won't need to create the same table in another DB, with the same processes, as the data that I want to use are the same.
Do the synonyms do the job? I am using SAP PowerDesigner 16.5
Let me know if my question is clear enough.
