  Phrase Assignment


You use this function to define the value set of phrase sets.


After a phrase set has been assigned to a characteristic or a field of the SAP Environment, Health and Safety (EH&S) component, you can use the phrases in this phrase set as possible entries for assigning values to the characteristic or field (see Phrase Set-to-Attribute Assignment ).


  • The Phrase assignment function lists the phrases in the phrase set. You can:

    • Assign more phrases or delete existing assignments

    • Specify the sort sequence

  • The SAP system ensures that you only assign a phrase to a phrase set once.

  • However, you can assign a phrase to several different phrase sets at the same time.

    Note Note

    In phrase management you can also define assignments of phrases to phrase sets from the phrases (see Phrase Set Assignment ).
