Change to SAP EH&S Release 2.2B
You should create a variant for SAP EH&S Release 2.2B for report
program RC14KCMP for the master data matchup. This variant executes the functions Set deletion indicator
and Delete physically.
Schedule the variant at night as these functions could require a long time. You will find more information in the IMG activity
Set Up Job for Deleting Data.
Changes in Patch Level 1
Changes have been made available for SAP EH&S Release 2.2B using Patch
Levels. For more information, see the following and the OSS note 122878.
Changes have been made to Dok-X report export in Patch Level 1 for EH&S Release 2.2B:
1. Manual export from the report information system
When you create a Dok-X report export order from the report information
system, as of Patch Level 1, the R/3 System checks whether the report
has already been exported. For more information, see the application help under
Product Safety -> Interfaces -> Import and Export: Process -> Report Export: Process
2. Physical Export Path Customizing
The physical export path must be set up in Customizing for Product Safety
. For more information, see the IMG activity Specify file paths and names.
3. File Name for the Dok-X Report Export Files
To determine the file names for the export files, the system generates
a sequential number from a number range interval. Before Patch Level 1 the version was determined via the environment parameter
4. For more information about the following further changes, in the
application help based on a standard release 4.5B or higher, choose
Product Safety -> Interfaces -> Import and Export: Process -> Report Export: Process:
a) The structure of the key file has changed.
b) When saving the export orders, the most up-to-date Dok-X report export
order for a report is retained in the system. Older Dok-X report export
orders for the same report are deleted providing they have status 'historical'.
c) During automatic re-export, the system checks for every report that is
newly generated whether there is a Dok-X report export order with the
previous version of this report. As of Patch Level 1, the system also
checks whether the new report generated has already been exported manually from the report information system.
Automatic re-export is performed depending on the initiator. The material name is also taken into account.
Changes in Patch Level 3
The following functional changes were made to EH&S Release 2.2B in Patch Level 3:
1. Extended Searches for Report Shipping Orders
The new parameter FLG_SEARCH_WITH_HEADER_DATA (search only via header
data) for the user exit type SRS_QUERY has been created for the
extended search for report shipping orders. This parameter can be set
for searches in which you only have to search using the header data, thus increasing the speed of the search.
For more information, see the IMG activity
2. Customer Exits for Report Shipping
The following changes were made in Customizing for Product Safety:
- The customer exit
CVEA0001 for checking the material name has been enhanced to include the parameter I_REPORT
- The customer exit
CVFE0001 for selecting the default output device has been newly set up
1. Enhancing the Definition of the WWI Destination
As of Patch Level 3 you can set up the WWI destination for different
categories of report generation orders. The orders are distinguished
using the application component and the processing type. For more information, see the IMG activity
Check WWI destinations and assign generation server.
2. Automatic Generation of Worklists
For performance reasons, the report for automatic worklist generation (RC1AVGEN) has so far been divided up into
report program RC1AVGE1 and report program RC1AVGE2. Report program
RC1AVGE1 determines the reports with potential changes and stores them in a database table.
Report program RC1AVGE2 processes the selected reports in packages. You
specify the size of the packet with the new environment parameter AVGEN_SPLIT. For more information, see the IMG activity
Specify environment parameters.
Report program RC1AVGE1 should run in the same cycle that report report
program RC1AVGEN ran in before. Report program RC1AVGE2 can be
scheduled so that it runs either periodically, or started manually, for
example, when the reworking of a particular substance has been completed. If the report program RC1AVGE2 is scheduled with certain
selection criteria, these should be selected so that all reports with potential changes are checked.
Report Program for Deleting Old Value Files
Value files that were stored in report generation as long texts up to
Patch Level 3 cannot be used for future enhancements. You must therefore delete these long texts using report program RC1XVALF that
you access via transaction SE38. Before you start the report program,
you must ensure that neither the report generation and the report
shipping processes nor the processes of automatic work list generation are running.
Effects on Customizing
Make the necessary settings in the following IMG activities:
Patch Level 1
Patch Level 3
The following IMG activities have been newly created for Patch Level 3:
Changes in Procedure
The Check WL creation function under Environment in the
report tree has been withdrawn as of Patch Level 3. You both start
report programs RC1AVGE1 and RC1AVGE2 and check the log using the standard report functions.
