WWI - Report Symbols do not work after importing the MSDS into other system

Former Member

After development and testing the MSDS in the DEV system, I exported the MSDS (DOC and DAT files) to my local computer. Following with the import of the two files in the QAS system, with the export, download, upload and import functions of EHS basics tools.

I have checked and added some of the symbols which where missing in the QAS system, during the import process, which is named Symbol Match Up.

After the import of the MSDS, all the specification symbols are not working. A preview of the report template show empty (the results for coding are not displayed only the plain text outside the coding area is diplayed at the preview of the report template).

When I compare the symbols in IMG:

EHS > Basic Data Tools > Report Definition > Report Symbols > Check and Specify Report Symbols.

The only difference is the report symbol description:


QAS: Comparative density(water=1)

What do I do wrong?

Many thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

Roy Derks

The solution is that two tables need to be transported (containing the symbols and description) from the system where the Report Template have been developed. You can transport the tables TCGA6 and TCGA7 with these information).

Match up Master Data transaction (generate symbols), should only be done in one system (in our case the Development system).
