Latest SDS version content is displayed when opening Previous version SDS

0 Kudos

Hi All,

Issue : Latest SDS version content is displayed when we try to open old version SDS.

Analysis:

* For a specification 2 Reports are created with generation variant SDS_CH and EN Language. (SDS v 3 and SDS V 3.1)

* SDS version 3 is created on year 2013 and SDS version 3.1 is created on 06.05.2020 . User made 3.0 historical and released SDS version 3.1 on 06.05.2020 and again user made SDS 3.1 historical on 07.05.2020

* Now both the reports SDS are in historical status.

Problematic scenario :

When user trying to open SDS 3.0 in Report management in that word file SDS 3.1 is opened instead of SDS 3.0.

Kindly provide us a solution why SDS 3.1 is opening when we try to open SDS 3.0.

Regards,

Suresh

Hello

step one: use transaction SE16 in combination with SAP Table ESTDH

step two: try to find the entries of the both reports in the table (those you are looking at and for those you have problems)

Step three: compare the link in ESTDH table to "wwi" document in both data records. If the number is the same.. then you have an issue

If WWI link is the same: you need not to check DMS; but if you have a "DMS" expert: some analysis might behelpful (e.g. looking for change documents etc.)

Question: contain the used WWI layout a reference to a "version"? So you are 100% sure that we talk about the "same" report?

I believe if you check table ESTOH you might get some helpful information on top

PS: years ago (more than 10 years ago) some "similar" effects have been detected on our side; but SAP has corrected that long time ago

Hi Christoph,

Still the issue is not resolved !! Yet we checked the inputs of ESTDH and ESTOH table everything looks different for Both version 3.1 and 3.0. We use content reporsitory for storing our data therefore we debugged the entire standard process of opening a Report SDS in EHS system for SDS version 3.0 and we found that the document coming from the Content repository is of SDS version 3.1 but we dont know the exact reason why two SDS having same version SDS stored in Content repository.

Kindly Provide you inputs !!!

Suresh.

Hello

so ESTDH shows different links to WWI documents but the "link" to the document ot the "document repository" seems to be wrong...

This is now a quite tricky situation..Long ago we have had a "similar" situation; but i can not remember any more if we have used at that point in time a "document repository" (so that document is not stored in "DMS" but outside of SAP)

1.) i would assume that such data/document situations are very rare and very hard to find and identify

2.) so you need first a "DMS" specialist. This person should make sure (or check): is the set up correct (SAP <=> Document repository)

3.) you can/should start OSS dialog; but the "hard" story is: you need to find an approach to make the symptom repeatable; but you should think about OSS dialog

4.) You ahould look for an EHS functional/technical person who is experienced (more than 3 years) which knows how the "value files" are organized for WWI reports in EHS. This person should check the value file of report 1 (version 3.0) amnd report 2 (version 3.1): My assumption would be: if this persons checks the corresponding value file content you will find the expected differrent content (but not sure !)

I wish you the very best for your research
