Comments with BW IP

Former Member
0 Kudos

Hi guys,

I attended the TechEd this year in Berlin and I was told, that SAP will provide a reference implementation for commenting with SAP BW IP soon.

Is there anything available already, such as an How To Paper? Does anyone know, when we can expect such a "solution"?

At my customer site, I need to create a commenting possibility (more than 60 characters) directly within the WAD template - meaning, to create a comment in a column and also see in in the column of the query.

Thanks for you help,

Doris

Hello Dora,

It's feasible and result is satisfying. However it takes a decent effort to implement.

Hi Ondrej,

thanks a lot for your Answer! I have two questions (might be more later on..:)). Could You use this solution if you need more than 60 Char in the comment? And.. for me was not really clear: did you built an extra Realtime Infocube for the comments or you used your existing Basic Cube for the issue? I have to store the comments for later use as well..

Thanks and Regards Dora

Hello,

Yes, you can have more than 60 chars, data type for comment is STRING. There's no need for additional cube, comments are stored in separate table.

For further questions, you may consider opening new thread.

Hi.

You can try to use WAD modification module [com.sap.ip.bi.rig.DocumentContent|http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/weblogs?blog=/pub/wlg/22480]

Hi again,

thanks for your help, I'm now using modifications (document content) in the meantime in order to show comments in a column.

I've got a few questions though:

- is it correct, that these comments (bw documents) are query-specific? is it somehow possible to show comments in a query, that were created within another query?

- how is the sorting of comments? if i create many comments for a table row, which one of the comments is then shown in the column?

Thanks for your help

Hello Doris,

the SAP Technology RIG is in the process of producing the how-to paper you mentioned. Due to the upcoming holiday season, I can't really say how much longer we will need yet.

And if you need your comment to be more than 60 chars,
