Hello

I'm trying to find out the standard way of doing below ,

Regular output :

Stabilizer 1,3 wt % ±0,3 Stabilizer 1,3 wt % (one Symbol) ± (another symbol) 0,3 (symbol)

Data :

original-entries.png

Customer is expecting the output as below :

Stabilizer 1,3 ± 0,3 wt %

Data :

As we are building custom solution, which we are designing for PDS, At the initial stage I would like to propose business that data maintenance should be in below manner in order to achieve the output.

Before that i would like to check ,

is there any standard FM, which will fulfill the below requirement. which will divide the value and UoM ??

Regards

Satya

Hello Satya

the set up of your SAP EHS system is "strange"; Normally a characteristic like "Accuracy" does have an entry like "Ca." (and it is a phrase based characteristic); normally you would do it like (in WWI) as:

ca. 1 - 1.6 %

So the "ca." will come from one characteristic and the value " 1 - 1.6 wt%" will come from a characteristic having an "UOM" assignment and is capable to handle "intervals".

(your value is 1.3; the accuracy is "0,3" so 1.3 - 0.3 = 1 and 1.3 + 03. = 1.6 and therefore we get "1 -1.6 wt%" as the value in WWI report

In most cases the user/company is satisfied to read "ca. 1 - 1.6 wt%"

Now because of the fact you used a "not so good" set up of EHS there is may be a work around available and honestly: i am not sure if they will work but you can give it a "try".

I assume now the following: the characterstic "Value" has a reference to an "UOM" of type "wt%"

I believe you can try to "mask" the "UOM" part of the value iin WWI to get something like: 1.6 (so that teh "UOM" part as "wt%" is not shown); then you could "simply" add the character "+/-" (with some WWI logic around) and add the data from your characteristic "Accuracy" and then you can use a phrase like "wt%"; As i have now clue how you have defined the characteristic "Value"... some risks still exist in this approach; the approach assumes that any "value" as entered in in the dimension "wt%".

So normally: You use a characteristic which is "phrased" based and a second one which is "UOM" driven and is capable to handle an "interval".

I wish you the best to find a solution here

PS: You should check this thread any how.. The UOM story can be a "nightmare" in WWI https://answers.sap.com/questions/13025170/unit-of-measure-is-not-translated-when-report-lang.html

PPS: regarding your question: "is there any standard FM, which will fulfill the below requirement. which will divide the value and UoM ??" may be my workaorund might help you; but there is nothing else which i know in SAP EHS standard

PPS: the "masking" of values is not discussed often check e.g.https://answers.sap.com/questions/214350/issue-with-masking-numbers-in-sap-glm-labels.html
