SAP Crystal Reports.

I have a table with 5 columns in the table, which has a Left Outer Join to display the correct data, etc. However I need to doing something special on this report I am building for our Production floor.

The table is called 'UPC' however in the 'UPC' table the system/software keeps both the Carton Label and the UPC for a particular product. The issue is that even though they are both being kept in there, they are not in the same order.

Example would be for Product #123, UPC maybe the second inserted record in the DB and the Carton label would be the first but for Product #456, it would be visa-versa, etc. So who ever entered in the data, or it could be just the system itself, didn't put it in the same order (1. UPC 2.) Carton Label), etc. So on this Crystal Reports, I would like to build two (maybe two) 'formula' where it would it see that the # starts a '1' then it is a Carton Label and put it in the Carton Label area and if it starts with a '0', it would be a UPC, etc.

Of the top of my head, it would be 1 forumula but with both math formulas in there used twice? I'm not sure, but if someone could point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it.

  • IBM Power9/PowerVM LPARs
  • Intel x86_64/vSphere 6.7 VMs (using EFI)
  • SuSE Manager (SUMA) 3.2
  • SLES 15

I'm attempting to create a build infrastructure for both PPC LPARs and x86 VMs using a single SUMA.

By following the SuSE Documentation for Deploying SLES on Power, I am able to build SLES 15 on Power9/PowerVM LPARs.

My problem now is getting the same infrastructure to also build SLES 15 on x86_64/vSphere VMs.

I am able to build SLES 15 on the VMs using the ISOs - so there is nothing intrinsically wrong with the VMware environment. I also was able to produce an AutoYaST profile from an install.

The DHCP server on SUMA correctly identifies the VMs and assigns an IP address from the proper range, and also properly directs the VM to load the grub.efi file. Watching via WireShark, I see the VM successfully transfer the file using TFTP.

And then nothing happens.....

If I boot the VM into the boot selection screen and manually initiate the PXE boot via a network interface, it gets the file and cycles back to the boot selection screen. Lather, rinse, repeat. I never get a GRUB menu, the installer never starts, nothing.

Looking at the docs I linked above, there is some custom GRUB configuration and a special Cobbler …

Now that for other business process where the operational users will use in every stage  hence the need for technology solution in additional to above mainly on following business process and solution to be deployed on premises only.
1.       complete material movement tracking and capture the activities involved and automated email notifications and if the delay escalation rules .  
2.      Service, repair and maintenance  
3.      Warehouse/logistics management
4.      Inventory management
5.      Invoice management/HRMS/Vendor bills/salary # this is optional mainly 1 to 4 is important
We cannot go for cloud solutions the solution to hosted on premise.  Please suggest the ERP application that can be best suited for above should we have to evaluate Microsoft dynamics ERP AX , SAP  or any other where it to be used for operational and also for reporting and analytics . please suggest the best suited ERP or other solutions.

Hi - I am setting up a SAP HANA environment based on VMware 6.5 using RHEL 7.5 VMs.

One of my VMs has a number of drives (100GB OS drive / 32GB Swap / 50GB Binaries / 32GB Shared Data / 750GB DB / 750GB Logs), 48vCPU, and 768GB RAM and resides in a number of different Datastores.

My OS and Swap files share the same disk and datastore.

When I boot my RHEL VM, it tries to create the Swap space to match the amount of RAM = 768GB which instantly fills my storage.

I want 32GB configured for Swap space.

Am I missing the obvious? Is the sudden grabbing of disk space to match the amount of RAM expected behaviour?

Any help or guidance much appreciated

I had this question after viewing Append all database values in Parameter not bringing in all data..

I have been trying to append values for site (customer site names) and it is bringing in (on estimate) the first 1000 sites in the database.  If I create an "ALL" selection and run the report it does bring in all sites.  Basically when appending I can see up to values beginning with 'H', but running "ALL" bring up to 'Z'.

It is a standard parameter
Crystal report version is SAP Crystal Reports 2016 Support Pack 5 Version

Setting the parameter to dynamic has the same limited number of selections
I have gone into registry and created a new key - LOV, with the string MaxRowsetRecords and set as 1000000.

I need your advice please  to validate a solution for up to date  a file exchange between MarketPlace MIRAKL and SAP.
Mirakl does not give us the possibility to connect via sftp (user, mdp, port or other ).

However, If we use the CURL (client URL request library) technology to send requests and retrieve orders that are entered into our stores and repatriate them to SAP.
The connection is via https and in the script it will be used an API key that is unique and generate from our MIRAKL account. In this API key we have a user and a password, which makes the connection secure.

About security, the solution is secure (safe) or not and we advise me to implement this solution?

Dear EE,

My application is using SAP file in UTF-8 format, for this purpose my application uses a a DLL “Interface_encoding.dll” to convert file into required format.

Some how , same user generates file on same PC and get the different file formats.
1) Sometime it is generated correctly in UTF-8 format
2) Sometime fie is created in UTF-8 BOM format.

Please see that we have checked for DLL registration and it was fine all the time.

Your support is required to find out the possible root cause and resolution.
