Hi,

Please guide how can I add 'Region' field at the time of creating Travel request using T.code - TRIP in SAP. It appears at the time submitting the Expense sheet but not at the time of creating Travel Request.

It is important since the Per Diem is based on a combination of Country and region but at the time or Travel request only Country field is coming.

Region field do comes in ESS portal at the time of Travel request but why not in SAP?

Please advise.

Regards

Hello Andy,

from my understanding this is not possible in SAP standard.

Furthermore I can not recommend to use transaction TRIP anymore.

ESS = WebDynpro for ABAP?

Why you would need TRIP if you use ESS?

Actually we have a scenario where an Secretary is responsible for creating the Travel request for his Supervisor. Now, in this case the Supervisor will not share his login information for ESS portal with his secretary as it contains other information as well.

Now in ESS we will create a role and give access for the Transaction code - TRIP which she can access from the portal. By using this she can create Travel request for multiple Employees using the Portal.

This is our scenario and we are unable to get a solution apart from this.

If get you correctly it is advisable to use ESS portal rather than SAP for creating Travel request & Expense Settlement

Also, for my knowledge as well if I want to do testing on SAP and use the region field. How can I made it possible.

The use case you describe is exactly what the POWL Travel Assistant WDA is for, FITV_POWL_ASSISTANT.

http://help.sap.com/erp2005_ehp_04/helpdata/En/9b/4700b33d9d45b8a749a62b3b40dc22/content.htm

We have designed our process like this:

The POWL-assignment via PERNR is centrally assigned for travel assistants (like secretaries) in our Travel Department. So the secretary now has a role with which he can create travel requests and expense sheets for the manager. We restricted so he can only save these trips as draft, once he does this from the last roadmapstep of the WDA, a mail is sent to the manager. The manager gets the mail, goes into the portal, clicks on change of the draft the secretary created, "continue, continue, continue, save&send" (now isn't he hardworking ).

All of this is completely via the WDA ESS scenarios, no transaction iViews.

Cheers, Lukas

Thanks Lukas for the solution and it worked.

However, still curious how to add the region option in SAP R/3 in T.code TRIP at the time of Travel request.

It appears at the time submitting the Expense sheet but not at the time of creating Travel Request.

I can't verify this, since I'm in Public Sector and we can't use TRIP, only PR05. Can you make some screenshots and Highlight the field "Region" in Expense sheet and where you'd expect it to be in Travel Request?

HI Lukas,

Please find below the screenshot of Travel request where it shows that no region field is displayed.

Now, attached is the screenshot of Travel Expense report where it shows the region field.

Hi Andy,

now I finally understood. Unfortunately I also think, like Siegfried already said, that this is not possible in SAP standard. I don't see any option in FITVFELD for schema PL to handle this field (or its visibility). The last possiblity would be trying to trace down via debugging in the dynpro whether this field even exists for the screen and in case it does, try finding out where in the coding it is handled and whether you have options to modify its behaviour.

Cheers, Lukas
