Hi all,

Anyone has a list on possible settings for UPC_DARK and UPC_DARK2 settings? This is not problem-related, but more of a personal interest in SEM capabilities.

Thanks in advance,

Eduardo.

Hi Eduardo,

We have used UPC_DARK2 = X for totaling of planning layout columns. Hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Thanks Cassio, points awarded.

I am actually asking for a "list" of possible entries to those two tables, such as HIDE_NO_AUTHORITY = 'X', that hides planning folders at SAPGUI.

Regards,

Eduardo.

Thanks Eduardo.

Here is the parameter value for UPC_DARK2 not included in my previous reply. UPP_LB_01_USE_CALC_FE = 'X'.

Kind regards,

Cassio

Eduardo,

the offical values can be found in the SAP notes. Just do a search using the table name. Hari has listed a few but there are some more.

Eduardo,

Here is the explanation from OSS notes & hope it helps ur needs. (these explanations are in context of SAP GUI & if you are looking from web context, there are couple of OSS notes on web about these settings as well). check them out.

===================================

UPC_DARK table setting explanation

===================================

Local buffering of the Microsoft Excel layouts on the computer (as of 3.0A)

When you use Microsoft Excel in the Manual Planning, the basic Microsoft Excel documents have to be transferred from the server to the local computer. This is especially time-consuming with a poor connection. Therefore, the Microsoft Excel documents are stored in the temporary directory of the local computer in the standard setting in order to avoid a data transfer with every call of a layout. If you do not want the system to store files on the clients, create (or change) a record in database table "UPC_DARK" by setting field "NO_EXCEL_BUF" to "X". If you want to reset the local buffering again, delete the contents of the field again or delete the record from the database. This change is within the limits of the standard system.

For more information on UPC_DARK setting, take a look at OSS note 428092

===================================

UPC_DARK2 table setting explanation

===================================

SEM BPS: To ensure that the 'Calculate data locally' indicator is displayed in the Layout Builder, you must create the following record in the UPC_DARK2 database table: PARAM = UPP_LB_01_USE_CALC_FE and VALUE = X. You can also do this by executing the UPP_SET_CALC_FE_ON report. Otherwise, proceed as described in the BW BPS point.
