Use

You use this procedure to determine specifications for which the specifications selected in the hit list are specified as references.

Prerequisites

You have run a specification search or loaded a set of hits and are on the hit list screen.

Procedure

  1. In the hit list select the specifications for which you want to determine specifications for which the selected specifications are specified as references. If you do not select anything, the system determines the corresponding specifications for the first specification in the hit list.

  2. Choose with the quick info text Where-Used List .

    Depending on whether you have defined one or more where-used lists for the specification category in Customizing for Basic Data and Tools under Manage User Exits , different dialog boxes will now appear:

    • If you have not defined any other where-used lists in addition to the where-used list supplied in the standard system for the specification category, the Where-Used List: Components and Reference Parameters dialog box appears immediately.

    • If you have defined other where-used lists in addition to the where-used list supplied in the standard system for the specification category, the Where-Used List: <Specification category> dialog box appears. In this dialog box for the where-used list Component/Transp. class./Reference... choose with the quick info text Enter parameters .

      The Where-Used List: Components and Reference Parameters dialog box appears.

  3. Choose Referenced and make sure that the Composition and Transport classification indicators are not set.

Result

A new set of specifications appears in the form of a hit list. Choose with the quick info text Reset Selection to return to the original hit list.

If you have defined a number of where-used lists in Customizing for Basic Data and Tools , the system takes into account in the search all where-used lists for which you have specified parameters. If you have entered parameters for a number of where-used lists, you can specify whether the where-used lists are linked with logic AND or OR in the search, that is whether the specifications found must fulfill all or at least one of the where-used lists specified.
