Report header and extended attribute

Hi, 

I'm using PD 16.7.7 and creating a RTF report on a CDM. I'm creating my report with the legacy editor.

I created an extended attribute on entities and I'd like to add this attribute in the header of my report.

How can I do that, please??

Thanks!

Hi Alexandre,

now I see what you mean. And I am afraid, that you are able to insert only those values available under the Insert button. See screenshot header.png. However, the cardinality between ext.attribute on Entity and header on Model still doesn`t match. One model (=one value) vs. many entities (=many values of your extended attribute). You would still need to transform it for example into the extended attribute of a Model. And for Model, you have Name and Code values, which can be inserted into the header. So if you don`t mind sacrifying Model Name or Model Code to your purpose, you can do it. In PD, you can display only Names or Codes at one time, but not both. The only exception is Model properties dialog, but I suppose it is almost not used. Or very little, during the model creation mainly. So here is your hack.

HTH,

P.S. It is very unlucky, that you cannot reply directly to specific aswer, if you need to attach a screenshot in this new forum... SAP should work on this soon.

Hi!

Good idea!

Even it is not the solution I was looking for, I'll take a look if I can apply your workaround.

Thanks!
