Report Definition

Under Edit Cover Sheet Template, you can insert address blocks in cover sheet templates for material safety data sheets that output the recipient and sender addresses according to the standard address format in the recipient's or sender's country. This means that you do not need to create separate cover sheet templates for recipient countries that have specific address formats.


Import Vendor MSDS (CG36VEN) has been renamed Import Single Report and extended to include the import of all reports. This means that the import is not restricted to vendor MSDS.

Specification information system
  • The Customizing activity Generate Standard Phrase Sets has been extended to include the activity Exclude Characteristics from Phrase Set Assignment. In this activity, you specify characteristics for which no phrase sets and no characteristic-attribute assignments are to be generated.

  • The data for the valuation assignment types of category Composition is output in a table based on the ALV grid control table display. This table display replaces the step loop display used up to now.

    One feature of the ALV grid control is that you can display the total for the components in a row at the end of the table.

  • In the Customizing activity Set Up Table-Based Value Assignment, the activity Create Entries for the Value Assignments (report RC1TCG11_02) has been extended to include the Phrase Representation group box. You can specify for individual value assignment types whether the assigned phrase-enabled characteristics (data type CHAR) appear as the phrase text, phrase code, or phrase code and text.

  • In the EH&S Expert, you can use a user exit to execute multiple sets of rules (which are combined in a rule set sequence) for a specification in a defined sequence. This means that you do not have to call and execute each set of rules individually. On the Determine Secondary Data screen, you choose the rule set sequence that you specified in the Customizing activity Manage User Exits.
