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.

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 am unable to send the report to email ,could you please help me to fix ,if possible please explain the necessary steps to take .It's very helpful to me .
Dear All,

  I am working on a Business Objects Web Intelligence Report(Webi).  The presentation of the report is just a table contains rows and columns and export to an Excel File. This report consists of: 1 Report, QueryA, QueryB

  I want  to add a new column to the report.  This column need to check if That row's ID field is exist in a Query of the report.  If it exists in the Query, then Display Yes. If it doesn't exists in the Query , then Display No.

This is what I did:

I added a column to the table and tried to apply a formula to the column:  if ([QueryA].[id]  in list ([QueryB].[id]); "Yes";"No")
However, when I tried to validate the formula: it says Missing Element in [QueryB]

How do I make this new column to display Yes or No based on whether the ID is in QueryB?   What are the approaches to make this happen?

I'm on Business Objects Web Intelligence version 14.0.6

Thank you!

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
Hi Guru's

I have 10 item material in sales order, 8 from 10 material already delivered and delivery status is complete.
But 2 from 10 material it wasn't delivery and delivery status "not delivered" and overall status is open.
I want to try complete this open status with "reason for rejection", but I can't do it because field reason for rejection still "blue" and can't maintain. I was try complete status with tcode MASS, but it didn't work.

So wht should I do?

Thanks & Regards,
Hello EE,

We are migrating to SAP as our ERP system and I am in IT support.
I am the current ERP admin and would like to get my feet wet in being able to admin/support the SAP platform going forward.

There are many training classes and I don't know if anyone would have anything to recommend
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.

Hello I'm running a report in SO01
After I execute the file and select APPL MESSAGES and the output is only designed to print on a printer.
There’s no export to excel or spreadsheet option (see attached)
Every page has a header and the error message is part of the header.
I need to export this data to a table and have the error message along side each employee

Can anything be turned on to allow this report to export to excel.  It’s all in a table somewhere, so shouldn’t there be a way to extract it out?
Basically , i want to create  report based on  expense account  in P& L  statement . in which  against each expense  Gl account ,with hold amount appears in the report
