Few questions on EB-SUS scenario?

Dear Experts,
I have few questions on EB-SUS scenario which you may help with your expertise. It will be helpful for those who are new to scenario?
1. EB (enterpise Buyer or SRM) -SUS scenario is used for requesting external staff? can it be used for non stock or free text items in extended classic? does it support direct material procurement ?
2. Does EB-SUS or SRM-sus support service item with hierarchy like MM-SUS?
3. EB-SUS scenario is basically on extended classic or standalone scenario? But, in extended classic scenario, it does support only Purchase order and PO response scenario? What badi's or customization is required to enable the confirmation and invoice for extended scenarios?
Full marks for good answers !!!
Thanks and regards,

I am also interested in this question with another view of it:
- Can SUS be used together with SRM (EB) for consumables in standalone scenario?
- What are your experiences with SUS in general. I foresee that we would need some add-on development to the solution, is this easily done or does it take a lot of effort?
Thanks for any good input

  • SRM, ROS and SUS scenario question

    Hello Experts,
    We are in the process of implementing MDM, ROS, EBP and SUS scenario in our present project. I went through the documentation. I have couple of questions.
    1. Do we need to have seperate clients for ROS and SUS. What is the best practise.
    2. Since we have SUS, once I transfer BP from ROS to EBP, check the portal vendor box, I would like to know how the registration code will be sent to supplier. Do we need to create the userid in EBP or with the receipt of registration code supplier will be able to create his first initial userid? Also how we can implement this with CUA and EP as part of landscape?
    3. Also since we have MDM, how the new BP information can be migrated or mapped in MDM and how new BP can be sent to backend system? I understand there is BP monitor to check and approve the changes, but how the new BP will be transferred? Do we need to develop new XI message for this? if Yes, from where that can be managed? from EBP or MDM?.
    I searched through help.sap.com for any documentation but no success.
    Thanks in advance

    1.Refer the foll thread:
    Re: Supplier Registration without SUS or XI?
    2.For supplier registration,SUS is not mandatory.You need to configure ROS for this scenario.The extrenal vendors will register in ROS and then be replicated to R/3.
    You can use EBP only for Supplier registration.
    SUS,ROS and Bidding engine make up the SRM server 5.5/EBP component of SRM 5.0.
    Pls refer the foll link for the complete process:
    For detailed settings/config  of supplier registration,refer the foll threads:

  • Schedule lines tranfer from R/3 to SUS in a MM-SUS scenario

    Hi SRM gurus,
    We are working on the MM-SUS scenario where the scheduling agreement is created in the backend R/3 system. Delivery schedule lines are generated in the backend and transfered to the SUS thru. ME9E transaction for sending the delivery schedule to the SUS.
    We have a confirmation control key which guides us in SUS to create an ASN in the backend.
    Though there is a confirmation control key exist in the SA for that particular line item, when the ASN is sent from SUS to XI to R/3. There is an idoc error in the R/3 which says that there is no confirmation control key though it is there for the line item which is transfered to SUS.
    Now Pls. answer my questions :
    1) Will ME9E transfer the total lines in the SA or the schedule lines with the delivery schedules only ?
    2) Is it possible to resend the same schedule line ( with the updated delivery schedule) to the SUS as per the standard scenario?
    3) In the SUS how do we findout the materials corresponding to that particular delivery schedule line. Because in SUS the reference is only the scheduling agreement number as we could not see any scheduline line item.
    Pls. suggest.
    We are working on SRM(SUS) 5.0 with ECC6.0 as the backend.
    Best regards,

    i have seen the code --> where the FM is called for creation of SAR in SRM.
    that is FM
    BBP_SAPXML1_SUSPO_CREATE_IN --> in this --> search for this
    Call API
          IF ls_header-description EQ 'DELINS'.
              is_header   = ls_header
              it_item     = lt_item
              it_attach   = lt_attach
              it_partner  = lt_partner
              it_longtext = lt_longtext
              it_tax      = lt_tax
              it_limit    = lt_limit
              it_sdln     = lt_sdln
              es_header   = ls_header_e
    this one creates ---> the SAR in SRM.
    and also i have seen further --> there is no place where any BADI is also called.
    i am afraid it is not possible to control what you want using BADI.
    only --> difference between --> New document and the old document is
    the Indicator --> C for create
    U for update.
    And Also if you can see the XML message for the updated document --> you can see all the lines in the XML message.
    Not the added lines...

  • Thinking of moving to iMac from PC, got a few questions

    I'm thinking of moving to an iMac for my next computer, probably in the next 6 months or so, but I have a few questions I wondered if you might be able to help me with.
    I'm planning on getting Parrallels Desktop and installing Windows. Now I know Time Machine takes backups every hour. But I was wondering if it will also backup not only the Mac side but the Windows side too.
    For example, if I install a program on the Mac side, edit a file, delete a file etc, Time Machine will backup the changes on its next backup. If I done the same while running Windows, i.e install a program on the Windows side, edit a file, delete a file etc, does Time Machine backup these changes for the Windows side too.
    Presently for my backing up purposes. I have a hard drive caddie which has a esata connection as well as a USB connection. I have a 3.5 inch 1 TB sata drive that slides in and out of my caddie by way of (for want of a better word) a cradle. I'm planning on getting a 3.5 inch 2 TB sata drive and an additional cradle so that I can have a large collection of backups.
    Now with the hard drive caddie I've mentioned above, to use it on an iMac, I would only be able to connect it via USB. My fear with this is that it will be a lot slower at taking backups to what I am currently used to seeing when I have it connected to my PC via esata.
    I thought about this and noticed the LaCie eSATA Hub Thunderbolt Series on the Apple website http://store.apple.com/uk/product/H8875ZM/A/lacie-esata-hub-thunderbolt-series?f node=5f&fs=m.tsConnections%3Desata
    From what I can gather, it would allow me to connect my current esata caddie up to it and it would increase the performance of it to Thunderbolt performance and also would allow me to make use of my current hard drive in the process. I was wondering if anyone has used this hub and if so, is the performance significantly improved. I thought that Thunderbolt would be a good and extremely fast way of taking backups. I will point out that I find that the taking backups every hour with Time Machine, for me would be a bit of an overkill, so I'm planning on just switching Time Machine off when I don't need it to take backups, and then switching it back on when I want it to take a backup. Doing this could result in larger backups than if I had it doing it hourly, so again I thought something that would give me Thunderbolt performance would be good for this scenario.
    Any help and advice would be appreciated.

    By default TimeMachine does not back up your Parallels virtual machine and if you think about it that's a good thing. Since the Virtual Machine is in effect a hard drive, just booting up Windows or launching a program changes the VM file as temporary files are created. My VM is 25GB so not only would TimeMachine be making a copy of the VM every hour that Parallels is running, it would be copying 25GB! Not good.
    There are a number of solutions. On my desktop I use a different program to backup my VM each evening about the time I eat dinner. On my notebook I have a repeating reminder that asks if I've backed up my VM recently. As far files go, my solution is to save all my files to my Mac drive space so that TM backs them up.
    USB is slower than eSATA but for day to day use, USB is fine for TimeMachine. The initial backup will be longer and OS updates will result in longer backups but otherwise....I have a USB drive connected to the computer I'm using right now. On most hourly backups TM is running a couple minutes and it doesn't require much bandwidth or CPU so the only time I really notice it running is I look at the drive light.

  • SUS Material PO for EBP-SUS scenario

    Hi All,
    We are planning to implement EBP-SUS scenario for PO.
    My Question is Can we use EBP-SUS scenario for material PO,POR and ASN
    in extended classic mode.
    Please help.I need this info urgently.
    Also if anyone has config settings document for this scenaio then I would appreciate
    if they can share with me Priyasinghsap  at gmail
    Thanks in Advance.

    As far as I know, extended classic senario is not supported in SUS, only the following senarios is supported.
    1) SUS-SRM ( In this case, SRM should be local.)
    2)SUS-MM(R/3) (Only separate ERP system)
    Because, in extended (classic) , there're over  ERP/EBP systems, when post confirmation, system might have problem,
    Eventhough, some customers is using, but this senario is not supported and customer need modification to archive this.
    The SUS-EBP (service procurement) and SUS-MM (plan driven procurement) can be used only separately but not mixed.
    Does anybody have more inputs?

  • SUS Scenarios

    Hello Guys:
    I am a little confused about all the different deployment scenarios when you integrate SRM with SUS, and I am not sure if you could help me to solve some questions I have
    I have the requirement to be able to retrieve PO, POR, confirmations and Invoices from SUS to the backend for direct and indirect materials so what I understand is this:
    If I implement the MM-SUS scenario I will be able to retrieve these documents from SUS directly to the backend system. but what happens with the requirements coming from EBP (Shopping Cart)?? can I implement also the EBP - SUS scenario in order to procure indirect materials and retrieve these documents to the backend??  the EBP should be in the classic or in the classic extended scenario?? I know the CES only support PO and POR collaboration and some enhancements need to be done for the rest of the documents, but I that means the classic scenario supports all the follow on documents (PO, POR, Confirmation and Invoice)?? Should I use the classic scenario for my EBP-SUS integration for the indirect materials and the MM-SUS for the direct ones in order to fulfill my requirement??

    You need PI in ROS if you are using ROS in conjunction with SUS. Say after selecting a vendor you now want to do business with this vendor, so you will have to push him from SRM to SUS system. PI is needed for this push.
    And yes for document exchange (PO/PO response/ASN/IV) between you and the supplier you need SUS

  • EBP SUS scenario ---sending a PO output from EBP to SUS

    Hi All,
    We are working on EBP SUS scenario with SRM 5.0 and ECC6.0 as the backend.
    We are creating a PO in the EBP which is to be sent to SUS for creating a POR in SUS from vendor.
    1) How do we configure the PO output from EBP to SUS system?
    We could see one method call in Set output actions and output format for sending XML purchase orders. How do we configure this to send it to SUS.
    2) Is it possible to have EBP and SUS in one client where from we will create a PO and send it to SUS?
    Thanks in advance.
    Best regards,

    there is one customizing setting available --> you need to set this in your SRM system
    transaction --> spro ---> supplier relationship Management --> SRM Server --> cross application basic settings -->
    Set output actions and output format --->Condition dependent document output
    in this setting select --> purchase order ---> you can see four actions --->
    for the last action --->Method call ---> Time of processing ---> should be -->Processing when saving document.
    2) it is possible to have SUS and EBP in same client.
    You can refer to few notes available on service market place.
    ---> it is not to be used for productive use --> only for demo purpose.
    one thing i remember is --> the system type in the scenario is EBP_SUS ( One client EBP and SUS )

  • A few questions on BDB replication

    I have a few questions on replication and will appreciate any help that I can get:
    1. In standby mode are there any issues if the existing DB files are explicitly not opened. In this scenario the standby DB host went down and the BDB application was brought up , the environment was opened with the recovery option but the DB files were not opened.
    2. What happens if a standby appliciation goes down while the synchronization is in progress i.e. the STARTUPDONE event has not been received - will the subsequent Database recovery complete (after the application has been reinitiated) ? Are there ay APIs to check if the DB is in a consistent usable state?
    3. How are the user created log entries (created by log_put) handled at the standby DB. If we use the base replication API(s) is there ay way to trap and extract the log entry before/after the rep_process_message call.
    Thanks for your help.

    Here are some answers to your questions.
    1. BDB does not care whether or not the application has any database files opened.
    When the standby applies transactions to a database it opens up anything it
    needs internally.
    2. There are two types of synchronization. The first is when a replica was down, and it
    is now simply a bit behind the master when it comes back up. In that situation, it is simply
    catching up to the master. If it were to crash during that time, it would again catch up to
    the master when it rebooted. The second is internal initialization where we need to copy
    over the databases, logs and run a recovery on them (internally of course). If the replica
    were to crash during this operation, the partial databases/logs that exist on reboot will
    be cleaned up automatically and the initialization would restart when communication was
    3. When a replica receive a log record (any log record, user-created or BDB created),
    it simply writes it into the log. Only when the replica receives a txn_commit does the
    replica call the recovery functions to apply the log records on the replica. That would be
    the time when the function for an app-specific log record would be called.
    There is no support for apps to crack open the replication messages.
    If you're using the Base API you are in control of the communication already though. If
    the master needs to send something to the clients, the application could have a different
    type of message that is app-specific and doesn't involve BDB, rep_process_message at
    all. Is that what you're trying to accomplish?

  • Few questions before buying a GPS receiver

    Hello everyone,
    I have nokia E63 and I have few questions about the Maps feature:
    1. Is it free or do I have to subscribe to Maps?
    2. How can I tell if my there are maps available for my country?
    3. Does any bluetooth GPS receiver work, or do I have to buy something specific?
    4. After I buy a GPS receiver, do I have to pay something for my cellular company? or GPS + Maps is enough?
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi kobyaizer
    1) Determining your position or planning a route is free, but you have to pay extra for voice guided navigation although a free trial is offered pricing available here:http://europe.nokia.com/A41441532
    2) Regional maps here:http://europe.nokia.com/explore-services/maps/download/nokia-map-loader
    3) Any Bluetooth external GPS should suffice.
    4) Bear in mind two processes at work, Nokia Maps application in which you can set "go-online at start up" to "No" and "Assisted GPS" which can be disabled if you are using an external GPS as would be superfluous and in this scenario you do not have to pay anything. Assisted GPS if enabled downloads 2-5 kb's of data for a positional fix which without a data plan can cost about 0.07GBP in UK.
    If you require any further information then please ask.

  • A few questions before I buy a new iMac/Mac mini and sign up for Creative Cloud.

    Hello Everyone,
    I am looking to purchase a new Apple computer and sign up for Creative Cloud within the next week and I have a few questions that should be answered before I proceed.
    My wife and I own a business and we will be using the CS6 apps to create brochures, Constant Contact mailings, product package inserts, edit product photography for print and web use, and short HD how-to videos. We are not graphics professionals or power users and wont be doing anything too complicated.
    Any help and answers will be greatly appreciated.
    I will start with the hardware questions first:
    I am trying to decide between the iMac and the Mac mini.
    The iMac is a 2.7Ghz Quad-core Intel core i5 and comes with 4GB of memory that is expandable to 16GB, which I will do for sure. It comes with a Radeon HD 6770M graphics card with 512MB of GDDR5 memory(not upgradable), and a 1TB HDD that runs at 7200RPM. This unit meets the specs required.
    The 2.5Ghz Mac Mini comes with 4GB of memory that is expandable to 8GB, I will also do this. It has a Radeon HD 6630M graphics card with 256MB of GDDR5 memory(not upgradable), and a 500GB HDD that runs at 5400RPM. This unit meets all the spec(I think) except for the speed of the HDD.
    Question: Will the mini run the software without too much of an issue considering the speed of the HDD?
    Question: Will the iMac run the software significantly better to justify the price difference?
    I already have 1 mini(purchased 4 months ago, with the same specs listed above) and will be purchasing a second computer for my wifes desk. If the mini will run CS6 fine, that is great and we can save a few bucks. If my mini will not run CS6 well, I will get the iMac for her desk as she will be doing the bulk of the work in that regard anyway.
    Now a couple of software questions.
    After reading hundreds of reviews and forum posts over the last few days I have seen many people having this or that issue. It seems to me that most of the issues are because of upgrades from Lion to Mountian Lion after installing CS6 first or trying to open CS3,4,5 files in CS6.
    If you want to know what issues have me concerned take a look at just this one forum:
    Similar issues are discussed in the Apple forums as well as many other places around the web.
    I am not a computer professional but I know enough to maintain my systems and keep them running smoothly.
    We do not have any Adobe software installed on my mini and will not be opening any files from previous versions of Adobe product in the new CS6 software. These will be a clean installs on pristine systems running fully updated Mountian Lion OS's on both machines and creating new files from scratch.
    Question: Should I be expecting any issues like the ones I have read in the forums and blogs or are these just the normal things that happen when upgrading to new software with multiple hardware configurations?
    My feeling is that we will not be having too much of a problem due to the clean installs and no files from previous versions.
    Next up, the Creative Cloud(CC) FAQ states that you can install on 2 machines but can't open stuff at the same time.
    Question: Does this mean we can't be using any CS6 apps at the same time or just not using the same app at the same time?
    Example: PS and PS on both machines at same time = No, PS on one and Dreamweaver on the other at the same time=Yes?
    The CC FAQ page says Adobe will add Lightroom 4 later in 2012 while the main CC page lists it as available now.
    Question: Which is true?
    My mini is registered to me, with my name, iTunes account, Apple ID etc.
    Question: Do I need to do the initial set-up of the new machine with all my information to ensure the CS6 suite works on both machines? Do the computers need to be registered(as far as Apple configuration is concerned) to same person for them to work on one CC account or can I install CS6 on any 2 machines regardless of how they were initially set-up?
    This may seem like a silly question but I want to avoid any problems before they happen.
    Well, those are all of my questions at the moment. To anyone who made it this far in my looooong post, Thank You so much for your time. I appreciate your expertise and knowledge and hope that you can help me make this decision.
    Alex Bogdan

    I'll try and answer your questions as best I can.
    Qn 1 Which Mac.
    Ans:- As I understand it both units will run Adobe CS6.
              Which one really depends on what you wand from CS6. If you are looking for high end demand and performance, then I would go for the IMac
              Your Specs for the Imac are right. However if you buy your IMac straight from Apple there are even higher specs.
              You can get:-
                                  3.4 GHz i7 processor rather than the i5
                                   2GB video card as opposed to a 1Gb video card.
                                   Of course such a model will cost you more.
              In the end it is needs compared with money to spend. That is only a decision you cam make.
    Q2:- Will the higher cost for the Imac justify copst.
    Ans:- Again it depends on what demands you intend to make on the hardware and software.
              But I note you have a business and if that businees expects to high demand and high speedy performance then I suspect the Imac would be more able to provide your needs.
              Again only you will know the answer to that.
    Q3:- Questions about CS6 reliability
    Ans:- I have been with Adobe for way over 10 years.
             Speaking, only for myself, it is the most reliable software on the market.
              It is true that if you look down this form, like any other and I am thinking about the Apple discussions forum, you will find numerous instances of problems.
              Again this is only my opinion, but although all these problems are real for the individuals:-
              First it is not clear why they have the problem e.g. what have they done or not done.
              Second, they are in the minority of the total users using the hardware / software.
              The only problem I am aware of with CS6 is Acrobat X. I understand it has been sorted Adobe, however it cost me so much work I have removed it from my system and reverted to Acrobat 9
              So what I am saying is that there are only two comapnies I rely 100% on: They are Adobe and Apple.
             So if you are happy with my opinion I would not worry about Adobe CS6
    Qn 4:- CS6 0n 2 machines.
    Ans:- Yes you will not be able to run the same program similtaneosly.
               I believe, if it is important that you do run the same program together, that you can acquire a further licience from Adobe to do that.
               You would need to contact Adobe about that.
    Qn 5:- Lightroom 4
    Ans:- Lightroom is now available as part of Creative Cloud.
    Qn 6:- Set up for individual machines
    Ans:- I do not believe you do. Once you have set up your Creative Cloud account you go to the apps site and download the apps for each machine.
              Each machine downloads the apps and your machine and the apps are registered by Adobe.
             Here is something that you may want to know:-
              Because I was so unhappy loosing all the Acrobat data with Acrobat X I ended up deleting Acrobat X
              However as far as Creative Cloud is concered Acrobat X is still on my machine.
              It is not a problem for me because I am happy with Acrobat 9, it fullfils my needs and has not crashed and lost me all my bookmarks.
              However here is the point:-
              Adobe, when there was a problem with Acrobat X requested that no-one deletes the application.
             Though I do not know for certain I believe registration of the apps you have with Creative Cloud are registered with Creative Cloud in their database. Therefore were you to delete an app, it will still be registered with Creative Cloud and you will not be able to download a further copy even though the app is no longer on your    machine.
              Therefore it maybe not a good idea to delete an app when you no longer have a use for it. If you want it back I suspect you will have to contact Adobe Support
    Personal Comment:-
              It is true many unfortunately have had all sorts of problems, including me with Acrobat X.
              That said, Creative Cloud in my view has been a major advance in how Adobe delivers software. I have no regrets with signing up to Creative Cloud and I expect to remain with it.
    Hope all of that goes some way to answering your questions.

  • Oracle 9i R2 Installation on RH Linux 7.3 -- Have a few questions.

    I am at the end of the Oracle 9i R2 installation and have a few questions.

    (1) You can probably just ignore the Agent Configuration (are you using the Agent to collect data?)
    (2) sqlplus '/ as sysdba' will log you into the SQL*Plus prompt.

  • New to IPhone and have a few Questions?

    To start I want to say that I am a long time (25+ years) veteran of technology but am new the the IPhone. My IPhone is not Jailbroken and would like to keep it that way if I can. Allthgouh I did jailbrake it with blackra1n for about 30mins then I did a factory reload and let it be as it started acting stupid once I started installing apps from unofficial sources.;) Im a x86 nerd and NOT a MAC guy. I haven't sat down at a MAC/Apple in about 15/20 years.
    I just got my first IPhone 3Gs/16GB. (Coming from a BlackBerry Curve 8310) the other day and although it is taking some time getting used to, I think I will like it more then I do once I get used to it.
    Anyhow I have a few questions to start off with. I did some googleing already but just want to make sure I understand a few things.
    All though I did the BlackRa1n jail break thing and installed a few apps then it locked up and failed to turn on or something so I did the whole reload from itunes and now its all good. Anyhow.....
    1.) It appears as if one can not run a program from the home sreen and have it run in the background while doing other things? Take the many SIP Clients I have played with in the last 48 hours. Once I open the SIP Client and connect if I hit the physical button below the screen the program closes, thus the sip client no longer works. Pretty much most if not all apps iv installed from the App Store act like this. Is this the case? Does the IPhone not mutitask at all or verywell?
    2.) Are there any SIP Clients that work over 3G? All the ones iv tried say they are for WIFI only. The SIP Clients work fine when on WIFI. It sounds like this is Apples way of controlling/monopolizing the voice/data/voip aspect of the platform/device. Im sure they would lose a lot of money if everyone did what I am trying to do.Just my opinion.

    Sorry for all this just thought I would ask for feedback.
    Many thanks for any help anyone can provide,

    1.) It appears as if one can not run a program from the home sreen and have it run in the background while doing other things? Does the IPhone not mutitask at all or verywell?
    The iPhone SDK does not permit ANY 3rd party apps from running in the background or multitasking. It does provide for push notifications which can simulate certain background activity in terms of receiving external notifications while the app is actually closed. This works reasonably well with IM apps, news, sports, weather, travel updates and some peer-to-peer games.
    2.) Are there any SIP Clients that work over 3G? All the ones iv tried say they are for WIFI only.
    Just how would the SIP server connect to the cell carrier 3G network? Do you know of ANY that do??
    3.) Maybe I play with it to much but **** the battery dies fast. Is there anyway to optimize the battery at all other then for me not to use it as much?
    3G voice and data connections are culprits. Avoid email push and frequent fetching. See this Apple article for detailed suggestions.
    4.) How can I remote lock it if I lose it or it gets stolen? I read somewhere this could be done.
    MobileMe Find My iPhone will locate, set a passcode lock and optionally wipe all data from your iPhone. You have to be a MobileMe subscriber.
    5.) Are there any other Shells/HomeScreens/Themes that can replace the standard 4x4x4 row icons?
    No. Apple does not permit this.
    6.) The speaker phone (when on a call) seems kinda low even when turned all the way up. Is there any way to make it louder?
    You can troubleshoot your iPhone as described in the User Guide - restart, reset, reset settings, restore. Or, get hearing aids

  • A few questions from someone new to Aperture (and DSLR photography)

    Hi - I have just got my first DSLR camera (A Nikon D3000) and am trying out Aperture 3. I had a few questions which aren't all just necessarily Aperture related:
    I have imported my library from iPhoto, however now all my albums are in alphabetical order, rather than date created. I only seem to have the option to arrange my albums by, "Kind", "Name" or "Manual". Any idea how I restore the date created order?
    This may be too large a subject for here (I should probably buy a book on the subject), however JPEG, NEF and TIFF - I am shooting in raw mode which is generating NEF files. I had tried RAW+JPEG, but the basic JPEG this creates is really quite poor. The NEF files are generally around 7-12Mb. If I open them for editing in Photoshop, a TIFF file is generated in Aperture which looks to be over 8x the size of the original raw file, sometime over 100Mb. I then seem to be able to save it back as a JPEG at pretty much maximum quality which results in a file slightly smaller than the original raw file. Is it necessary to keep the large TIFF files once I've created a jpeg? Am I best off just keeping the finished jpeg and the original raw file in case I want to make changes?
    When publishing to flickr, It would be good to be able to just publish the latest versions of all photos in an album. ie not the same photo in tiff, nef and jpg format. Is there an easy way to do this, or is it a case of manually picking each one?
    Also - When uploading NEF files to flickr it would appear to convert them to jpg, which is kind of good I suppose, but does anyone know what level of quality the jpegs created are? Am I best off converting them to jpeg myself first and then uploading? If I did this then my albums would be full of duplicates in different formats, which leads back to my previous question about uploading just one version of each. That may be a question for the flickr forum...

    You have jumped into the deep end with both feet.
    With Aperture running select the single the Browser and you will find the sort controls under the Mobileme to New Smart Album icons depending on how stretched out you have the Inspector panel. There is the ability to sort by just about every parameter there either ascending or descending.
    Can Aperture not convert your NEF files? You dont have to have Tiff files at all. See your Preferences regarding External Editor. How much storage space and your archiving requirements will influence your decision about retaining Tiff files.
    I know nothing about Flickr but assume you will have to choose your own images. I doubt a Smart Album can select exactly what you need.
    When uploading files online galleries generally optimise the images. You are wasting your time uploading massive Tiffs IMHO. Most web services work with jpegs I understand. Consult the Flickr help and support for their requirements and advice.
    Enjoy your new hobby.
    Whether you have the room to save Tiff files as well as Raw files will probably decide whether you keep them or not.

  • MM-SUS Scenario: MM PO data transfered to SUS but SUS PO creation is fail

    Hello All,
    In case of MM-SUS scenario, when i created a MM PO and idoc data was sent to SUS, but in SUS transaction SXI_MONITOR i found that the line is scheduled instead of successfully status. In SMQ2 i found the error message: Storage form of product ID not yet defined in Cust omizing.  As i know that in MM-SUS scenario, the material master is not needed to maintain in SUS.  Please advise how to handle this trouble, thanks,
    Best Regard

    Hi Devi Swain,
    Firstly thanks for your reply.
    i have setted this configuration as you mentioned, and Prod.ID Lenth = 18,  "Display leading zeros" and "save lexicographically" are not ticked.  Then the new error message show:Prod.ID Lenth is longer than the customized setting.
    By the way, MM material number lenth = 18
