Process documentationCreating Custom Reports in Order Allocation Run Workbench Locate this document in the navigation structure


You use the report generation tool in order allocation run Workbench to create selection reports for assignments and requirements.

The default report for assignments and requirements ensures adequate selection based on frequently used selection criteria. However, if you need reports with different or additional selection criteria, you can create these reports with the ARun Workbench report generation tool.

For example, suppose if you want to include the Customer Group 5 in the selection criteria. This field does not appear on the default selection screen. You therefore have to generate a new selection report for all the fields that you want to see in the selection report. You can then assign this new report to the desired ARun Workbench type.


  1. In Customizing, choose   Logistics - General   SAP Fashion Management   Order Allocation Run (ARun)   Order Allocation Run Workbench   ARun Workbench Control   Generate Selection Reports  .

  2. Choose New Entries.

  3. Enter the following data:

    • Set: This number is an identifier for the set of fields you select. Enter the next available number within your application.

    • Application: This parameter defines the ARun Workbench area for which the report is used. Select assignments or requirements.

    • Description: Enter a name for your report.

  4. Save your data.

  5. At the left side of the screen, choose Tables/Fields.

  6. Enter the field catalog (set of fields) to be used for selection screen generation.

    • Table Name: This is the name of the database table to be accessed. A selection field is only unique when defined together with the table name. You can choose the list of available tables using the F4 option.

    • Field Name: Enter the technical field name. You can choose the list of available fields using the F4 option. If you have already entered the table name, press Enter to view the valid field names.

    • Sequence: Assign a number to each field, reflecting the order in which it is to appear on the selection screen. If you do not enter a valid value, this field is not considered during the report generation.

    • Search Help Name: Leave the field blank if you want the system to find an appropriate one during the screen generation. Otherwise enter a specific help view.

    Note Note

    • If you make an entry in the above fields and do not generate a report, the system displays and error message and the report is not generated.

    • If you do not make an entry in the above fields and generate a report, the report with only the default fields is generated.

    End of the note.
