New Functions

The following new functions are available for transactions VA05, VA15, VA25, and VA45:

  • On the selection screen, you have more options for editing the selection criteria.

    • For example, you can enter a larger number of selection criteria in clearly arranged data groups and you can search within value ranges.

    • You can search for inquiries, quotations, and contracts more precisely with regard to their validity. The system checks the validity data from the item overview.

    • You can search sales documents more precisely for a specific partner function, which classifies the responsible people or partners. If you do not enter any further restrictions regarding the personnel number or the partner for the selected partner function, the system returns all sales documents with the selected partner function.

  • In the selection results, the output list is displayed using the SAP List Viewer in the current version. This allows you to process the list with more versatility and change the layout in different ways. There are multiple layout variants for the individual transactions.

  • An enhancement concept enables the implementation of business add-ins, which you can use to enhance the selection criteria on the selection screen and to adjust the contents of the output list to meet your requirements.

    • BAdI: Adjust Selection Results (BADI_SDOC_WRAPPER)

      You can add customer-specific fields as columns for the results list. You also get a method for processing the additional field data. The data for the output list is processed line by line.

    • BAdI: Adjust Selection Results (Mass Access) (BADI_SDOC_WRAPPER_MASS)

      You can calculate and manipulate the data for the results using mass processing for all lines.

    • BAdI: Add Pushbutton (BADI_SDOC_VIEW_CUSTOM_FUNC)

      You can prepare a maximum of six other customer-specific functions for processing the output list. They are displayed as pushbuttons in the toolbar. If you define more than six functions, the additional functions can be selected from a dialog box.

    Note Note

    For technical information about the enhancement concept, see SAP Note 1780163Information published on SAP site (Report Optimization: Accessing Other Tables).
