 Set of Hits Management


Using set of hits management, you can save, edit, and load the results of complex specification searches as required in the form of sets of hits. As the system does not start a new search of the specification database when you load a set of hits, performance is improved considerably.

Caution Caution

A set of hits only ever contains the specifications that already existed at the time the set of hits was saved in the system. Specifications that were created subsequently in the system and that would also fulfill the search criteria that led to the set of hits are not automatically included in the set of hits. In this case, you must repeat the search and save the set of hits again. Searches that you require regularly for this purpose can be created as queries (see Query Management ).

Specifications that existed at the time the set of hits was saved in the system, but were then deleted, are not displayed when the set of hits is loaded.

End of the caution.


In Customizing for Basic Data and Tools , you have edited the following IMG activities:

  • In the IMG activity Specify Groups you have defined groups.

    The groups are used to store and edit sets of hits in set of hits management.

  • In the IMG activity Specify Group Trees and Assign Groups you have assigned groups to the group tree for sets of hits.

Process Flow

  1. You can carry out the following activities in the initial set of hits management screens:

  2. The set of hits that is generated or loaded is displayed in the hit list . From the hit list, you can fine-tune the set of hits, remove unwanted specifications from it manually , and save it (see Basic Functions in the Hit List ). With the help of a drilldown reporting job , you can execute a query of the system in the background and automatically save the set of hits that results.

  3. Sets of hits are managed in groups. In the group overview , you can copy or move sets of hits between the groups, delete them completely, or edit their header data .
