I want to increase the width of label border to 1 pt as for now it is only hairline.
The options available in the format section are single border, double, dashed and dotted.

I will be exporting this report to excel, so how to avoid the unwanted spacing of sections?

TQ77 contains a characteristics 'attribute' but I cannot figure out the relationship to CABN/CABNT/CAWN (perhaps over an additional table) - can anyone help on this?
I would like to know if there is a report I can run in SAP to show me the project codes opened per WBS and each end date. We want to monitor the opening of codes, so instead of the individual asking for the code once it has disappeared from their time sheet we want to run a report to flag up any codes due to expire in 2 weeks time then we can ensure the end date is changed.

Dears, kindly note this case,
we have Sybase ASE, I take a full dump daily at midnight, and an incremental dump every 30 minutes, I know the dump transaction truncates the log and this is what happened usually, but sometimes the dump transaction taken successfully while the transaction log INCREASE its size for a period maybe 3 days, I think this is because an open transaction which is not committed yet,
how can I be sure about my thinking, and how can I found what is the uncommitted transaction, such a transaction is executed by other employees and in the background of our application , i.e  no body know exactly what is a statement

I have replication server. REP 15.7.1
From last 2 weeks the replication delay is more.
When we check we can see some bulk insert happen and Identity_burn_max error for 2 tables.
So we just restart the thread and fixing the issue.
We need to fix it permanently.
I suspect identity_burn_max is the problem.
I checked the two tables in database. Both are empty.
Not sure why identify_burn_max error occurs for empty tables.

Is there any way to fix the issue permanently.

1. num_mutexes is greater than num_threads
2. dsi_bulk_copy is OFF -
3. sqt_max_cache_size is 20971520
4. dsi_large_xact_size is 100
5. dsi_max_xacts_in_group is 20

sap Crystal server 2016, how to run and check, how to connect to Oracle, how to call the reports which is published in crs server using visual studio
I have created a desktop application and designed some reports using sap crystal report. First to design report I used database from sql server management studio and put all the field on report. But I have to deploy it client side with localDB after connecting my application with local db I am able to access database on my forms but cant getting data on report. I fetched data in datatable then I am setting datatable as datasource for report but I am getting error."Failed to open the connection Details: Database Vendor Code:4060"

Please provide me correct answer as soon as possible.

Is there any issue if we setup 'abort tran on log full' for primary database? Does sybase try to kill repagent process in case replication marker is blocking the transaction? Kindly advise.


I am working with VS2015 C#. Trying to execute a stored procedure from a Sybase db.

It seems to be not receiving the parameters I am trying to send it. I attached the code I'm using with the error msg that I'm receiving.

I'm using this connection string:
Data Source={Adaptive Server Enterprise};server=ppw.amgreetings.com; db=db_cis00;uid=cis;pwd=hotstam;

I am able to receive data back from this db by using embedded sql, but the sp is having issues.

Do you guys see anything I could try differently?

We are looking to replace our current SAP systems with a new one.  We were thinking of pointing using a friendly URL to point to the database such as  prodcutionSQLDB.ACME.com  and  productionOracleDB.ACME.com instead of using DB Server name.

This way our application servers just get this FQDN to point to the database.  THis would simplify our DR planning and future migrations.

The question is, does SAP require certificates or something similar where the application servers would not be able to communicate with the DB  (SQL or Oracle).  My understanding is SQL and Oracle use username\pass to authenticate,  or does SAP rely on certificates to communicate with the DB servers?
This is for my web assessmet SAP S/4 Hana Sales: which steps need to be performed for existing customers to migrate to SAP S/4 HANA? enablement of digital transformation, verification of all data layers, techincal migration, implementation of additional high security measures. In my opinion there are available all the answers, but i`m not sure; without a digital transformation you cannot migrate to S/4HANA, you must verify all the data but I don`t know what all layers means; you  it will be a technical migration, and the experte say there are additional security measures implemented. I really don`t know if my answer is correct because I have multiple choises, but I don`t know the number of correct answers; Thanks a lot! Best regards, Cris!

Is SAP Replication server 15.7.1 certified on Solaris 11 (sparc T-7)? Can anyone confirm please?

Hi All,
We are about to commence a project to start the decommissioning of SAP as we have replaced it with several other pieces of software.
SAP is internally hosted and we intend to archive the data and software as we will not be migrating all of the data to the new systems.  We will also need to keep historic data in order to meet several pieces of legislation.
Below are some of the points I thought that we need to consider, however I have never undertaken such a project before.  From the below, is there anything else I should be thinking about and taking into consideration in terms of the existing SAP infrastructure, the new archiving solution and how we make the move?

Any thoughts are appreciated.

  • Scope of data to be kept in archived SAP
  • Access to the system
- Who has access and what type of access
- Everyone to have read-only access?
- Any requirements for Admin/Developer type access?
- How will Admin/Developer access be granted (fire call)?
  • Decommissioning of old SAP Hardware – How will the hard drives be destroyed or recycled bearing in mind they hold significant private and confidential data.
  • SAP still supported for several years so how do we manage patching to keep it line with PSN requirements.
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 …

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.
