Function documentationData Content View

 

In the Data Content view, the system displays the data content of the selected data message. You can edit the data content according to your authorization level. Whether or not you can change certain field values depends also on your settings in Customizing for SAP Application Interface Framework. If you have the authorization for the Emergency Correction mode, you are able to make changes to all the fields of the data content.

Integration

You can make settings as to whether or not you can change certain field values in Customizing for SAP Application Interface Framework (transaction code /AIF/CUST) under Start of the navigation path Error Handling Next navigation step Namespace-Specific Features Next navigation step Define Changeable Fields End of the navigation path and under Start of the navigation path Error Handling Next navigation step Interface-Specific Features Next navigation step Define Changeable Fields End of the navigation path.

Features

Data Display
  • The Data Content view displays the data of the selected record type from the data structure in a table. The values are displayed in the external format (for example, for date or numeric fields).

  • In the Data Content view, there are the following fixed columns that can never be edited:

    • Exception (SAP GUI) or EXP_LED (Web-based UI)

      Indicates whether or not the data line contains an error

    • LINE_NR

      Contains the message index with line numbers. If there are nested tables in the data structure, several line numbers can be concatenated.

      Example Example

      For example, 1: 2.5 can have the meaning index of data message: second financial posting, fifth item.

      End of the example.
SAP GUI
  • To switch to full screen mode, choose Full Screen (Full Screen). In full screen mode, it is also possible to display the error messages in an additional subscreen. Therefore, choose Toggle on/off Application Log (Toggle on/off Application Log). The application log messages for the selected data message are displayed. Double-clicking on the log message displays the field the error belongs to.

  • To save the current layout or select a different one, choose Choose layout (Choose layout).

Data Editing

If a message has an error status and you have the required authorization, you can edit the content of those fields that have been defined as editable in Customizing.

To support you in correcting errors, the fields have the following colors:

  • Red

    An error occurred that is related to the content of this field

    Note Note

    A field is highlighted in red only if it was possible for the SAP Application Interface Framework to track an error to that specific field.

    End of the note.
  • Yellow

    Changed but not yet saved

  • Blue

    Not editable; System assigns value automatically

Fields are defined as editable in Customizing for SAP Application Interface Framework as follows:

  • Under Start of the navigation path Error Handling Next navigation step Namespace-Specific Feature Next navigation step Define Changeable Fields End of the navigation path

    Fields maintained here are editable in every interface that contains them and that belongs to the specified namespace.

  • Under Start of the navigation path Error Handling Next navigation step Interface-Specific Feature Next navigation step Define Changeable Fields End of the navigation path

    Fields maintained here are editable in the specified interface.

Activities

Data Editing
  • To edit fields, do the following:

    • SAP GUI

      Double-click the field and edit the text in the dialog box that appears. To apply your changes to all rows, mark the changed row and choose Apply.

    • Web-based UI

      The data content of all selected messages is displayed for the selected structure. If you choose Edit (Edit), all this data content is editable (if customized).

    Note Note

    For a field defined as date, time, or numeric type, you should maintain the value in the dialog text following the relevant format defined in your personal profile (use transaction SU3 to view your personal profile).

    End of the note.
  • When a column or row is selected where fields are editable, you can replace values by choosing Search and Replace (Search and Replace) in SAP GUI or Search and Replace (Search and Replace) in the Web-based UI. In the dialog box that appears, you can enter a search string (whole cell content or string with wildcard “*”) and a new value. If you confirm your entry in the dialog box, the system replaces all corresponding values in the selected column with the new value.

  • If you have changed data, the cells are highlighted yellow. The changes will only be saved if you choose Save in the Data Content view of the SAP GUI or in the main toolbar of the Web-based UI. If you select another record type or choose to leave the transaction without saving, a warning message appears.
