Some questions on SRM 2007

Hi All
As per my earlier knowledge SRM 2007 ( EBP 6.0) is going to be released in Q4 2008.
I read some people referring to it as SRM 7.0.
1) Is this wrong or SAP has officially changed it to SRM 7.0.
2) What is the corresponding version for SUS ?
3) Is MDM an absolute must for SRM 2007 , or CCM is OK?

Hello everyone,
I found this thread incredibly interesting.  There are frequent questions coming from clients and internally about SRM 7.0.  But there seems to be a lack of documentation (or at least itu2019s difficult to find).  The last official memo from SAP I know of is nearly a year old (Oct 2007  The release documentation ( is dated Jan 2008, which states release November 2008.
In light of this have a couple of questions:
- Does anyone have (or know of) any documentation detailing the new functionality compared to SRM 5.0 (or SRM 4.0)?
- Does anyone know of any more recent official communication from SAP other than those mentioned above?
Any help gratefully received.

  • Some Question About SRM

    Hi experts!
    I am very new to SAP so I wonder if you all able to answer some of my questions and doubts here.
    1. I have attempt to upload 2 similar attachment with the same name under bid response and strangely it was successful. I wonder if there is anyway I can prevent the users from doing so? A validation Like probably an alert pop up? This is over the web interface btw.
    2. We are updating the product master from a r/3 daily by batch using XML. We will send any updates from the material and service master to the SRM to update the product master. So I wonder wat kind of FM or Bapi can i use to merge the Service and Material master into the product master? Do note tis is done daily.
    I will generously reward those who can give me something helpful. hope to hear from u all sooN!

    Hi Chee,
    2. If I understand yr requirement correctly, what you are looking at is delta download for matl/ service masters, which is a standard function for SRM.
    For this you need to maintain the tables as per the note 720819.
    maintain filters in R3AC1 (if required)
    create a request in R3AR2.
    and schedule this request as a background job in R3AR4 with desired frequency.
    This will update the masters in SRM periodically.
    (of course yr other settings should be as per config guide.)

  • Potential new T61 user with some questions about product/su​pport/etc.

    Hi all!
    I've been using Dell Latitude's for last 7+ years and been happy with them thus far, as I was able to stay within the C-series thru 3 systems and reuse some components such as batteries, CD-ROM, etc. but now that I'd have to go to D-series, that gives me the choice of going to new vendor...and IBM/Lenovo was the only other choice due to my OS requirement: XP Pro!
    So now I'm here asking some questions that I'm still having issues with:
    (I'm comparing the T61 to Dell D530 and/or my C610)
    1) Features that I've used on existing Dell that I don't see on T61 :
        a) Infared port --- I've used to transfer stuff from one sys to another
        b) S-Video out --- I've used to display on TV for some situations  
        c) Serial port --- can't recall using it but with my luck, I'd need it sometime. 
        d) Parallel port (C610) --- for my really old printer used on rare occasions
        e) Floppy drive --- yes, I still use it for some unusual situations
    2) On Dell, I can put a 2nd battery or floppy drive in the media bay instead of CD/DVD...what about T61?
    3) Support:
        a) Dell forums have 7+ yrs of history and are well used...this forum seems brand new...was there another one before it?
        b) My Dell's have lifetime tech support (ok, so sometimes understanding the folks from India can be an issue) but IBM seems to limit this to life of warranty.
    4) Pricing: T61 would be seem to be, at minimum, about $150 more than similar Dell even with current "sales"...I'm having trouble justifying this...
    5) Things that I see that T61 has that new Dell D530 doesn't:
       a)  built-in mike --- my current Dell has it and I use it now and then so this is a plus!
       b) keyboard light --- nice feature, but couldn't I use a USB one instead if I really needed it?
       c) fingerprint reader --- never used often do people use it?
       d) 2nd card slot for Express cards --- current Dell has two standard slots and I'm using both, though one is wi-fi which C610 didn't have built-in...and other is modem to replace failed built-in...D530 has only one slot, so having 2nd of any type is good.
       e) middle mouse button --- is that what I'm seeing? Or is it something else?
       f) recovery partition --- ok, nice but how much room does it take?
    6) Things that D530 has that T61 doesn't:
       a) 4th USB --- I'm used to only 1 now so even 3 would be big step up...
       b) 15" standard screen --- T61 is only a 14.1" screen and that extra bit of size would likely help, but I'm limited on physical dimensions to 13.5" total width (unusual situation) so a 15.4" wide screen isn't possible...I'm looking at SXGA+ in either case to maximize usage.
       c) recovery CD is standard --- so I'm presuming I'd have to create my own here?
    That, I think, about does users willing to help me decide if a switch is good for me?
    Update: It seems that phone tech support is only available for warranty period with IBM, whereas with Dell, I can still call for hardware tech help (to diagnose problem at least) for "lifetime" or well past paid period, as I've already done in past...comments?
    Update #2: Changed the incorrect "R"s to "T"! Duh!

    A current Dell Latitute user who was looking to maybe switch...But didn't.

    I finally made the switch to Lenovo and the Thinkpad line of notebooks and think this was the best move I have ever made in years! I've spent far too much money maintaining a separate notebook (Dell Latitude L400) several custom built desktops.  This December, I sold my desktops, my laptops (I had 2 L400's), and my 20" Aquous LCD TV to finance my Thinkpad T61.  It was well worth it!  I will try to answer your questions in this checklist, which I found to be quite similar to my own .... frighteningly exactly like my own....:
    Hardware Requirements
    IR: This is pretty outdated but functional.  I used to use a Palm with IR as well as an IR laser printer.  I ditched both for a PDA phone with bluetooth.  The laser printer is networked now
    S-Video: You might be able to get away with a TV tuner cardbus or a expres card.  There might also be external converters that convert from your VGA/DVI (DVI via port replicator) into any variety of video outputs.
    Serial: My older Palm had a serial port for the docking station - bluetooth is a good replacement
    Parallel port: I currently have a USB to parallel adapter in my bag just in case.  These are cheap cables and work well.
    Floppy: I keep a USB one of these just in case.  I find that having fewer input devices on my laptop and leaving them external help keep the machine lighter for my mostly mobile usage (e.g., my L400 with no inputs at all except 1 USB port).
    T61 Spare Battery: Uses ultrabay battery - I rarely use the DVDRW drive and leave the ultrabay battery in there while on the go.  DVDRW drive stays in the bag until needed.  I recommend you upgrade to the 9 cell battery with the advanced ultra bay battery, which will give u something like 9 to 12 hours of operating life.  If you are not a fan of the battery pack sticking out like crazy, stick to the letter box format laptop (not widescreen), which will provide the minimum amount of battery pack stick-out with the 9 cell battery.  The 6 cell will not stick out with the letterbox laptop but will stick out with the widescreen version.
    Support Options:  I rarely call support so I have no opinion here.
    Pricing: Price was not really a concern for me.  I purchased mine for the business look mainly, which Lenovo maintained well.  I don't like the shiny/plastic/toy look of Dell and Apple computers these days.  If anything, consider the premium an investment in the build quality of these machines (or a premium just for the good looks).  I particularly like the roll cage as well as active protection system that stops the hard drive as soon as the system detects excessive motion. 
    Included Hardware Comparison:
    I like the mic, use it often for Skype and the built in 1.3MP webcam as well. 
    Keyboard light.... kinda cute but not as functional because it simply is too small.  It was a cute idea that could have been made better had Lenovo opted for a backlit keyboard instead.  That would have been more functional and added to the "cool" factor. 
    With regards to the Express Card and PCMCIA card slot, I rarely use either because everything is built in.  However, if you want that TV tuner, an express card or PCMCIA card slot is good.  If you opt for the built in media reader, you will be unable to use the express card as the media reader takes up that slot (I might be wrong, but I think the card reader is large enough that it takes up both slots, so u can't add anything anyway - but you should call pre-sales to answer that question). 
    Middle mouse button: The three buttons in the middle are used for the trackpoint/joystick mouse controller.  I think the middle button is configurable to do various things.  I personally hate the joystick and can only use the touchpad.  The lack of a touchpad was the only reason I did not stick to the smaller 12.1" X line of laptops, which was really more in tune with my size requirements (too used to using the L400 sized machine).
    Recovery Partition: This is a cheap way for manufacturers to make it easy for people to recover their systems in case of crash - without the need for any documentation or disc media.  However, it makes it hard for people like me who only use machines after a clean format and customized install of Windows.  This partition is about 10GB and can be erased with special disk format or partition tools.  Windows itself cannot read or delete this partition.  With the minimum size of the hard drives available, this should not be an excessive space killer for most people.  I personally need only 7GB total for OS and apps.  The remaining data I work with is actually streamed from a 500GB gigabit NAS.  I might switch to a 32GB solid state disk one of these days when their performance comes more in par or exceeds traditional drives.
    Recovery CD: You can create your own from the recovery partition since Lenovo does not provide any.
    4th USB: I only use 1 or 2 as well.  1 for an external micro mouse (I love my touchpad, but it's just hard to use with Photoshop or CAD apps) and a second for a USB memory key.  My other devices i.e., scanner, external mouse, keyboard, are plugged in on my desktop through a USB hub that goes to a single port on my docking station.  So yes, your docking station will probably remove the need for more than 2 ports.  Although, I do find it odd there are only 3 ports... such an odd number.
    Screen Size: I personally wish I could have gotten the X series of laptops but the 14.1 was the only other mobile solution.  For the larger screen size, docking station to my 24" Dell 2405FP.  The compact nature of the T series makes it pretty thin and compact though... it was not too much bigger than my L400 - at least, not uncomfortably bigger.
    But yeah, I think if you make the switch, you'll be getting yourself a solid machine that will keep u going for years.  The Latitude line of Dell's were really good, but overall, I feel that the nature of Dell's manufacturing process is making it too "cookie cutter" and reducing its overall quality level.  Their earlier lines were awesome, like the D lines you mentioned.  But unless you get the ATG line, you just won't get the same level of quality they used to offer (in addition, the ATG line is wickedly too expensive - I'd rather get a Durabook for military grade spec at a fraction of the price). 
    Anyway, have fun shopping! :-)

    Hello guys,
    we're considering to use FM SCP_REPLACE_STRANGE_CHARS in order to transliterate some special characters in texts transferred from SRM Unicode system to ECC Not-Unicode system. Destination and data transfer codepage is 1100. Herebelow some questions:
    1) the function automatically changes the text into capital letters, which is not good for us. Is this behaviour due to the fact that we're just testing the function?
    2) when we run the test with only INTEXT parameter populated, special chars like à, ò, è are translitered to a, o, there a way to avoid this? Do we have to set the codepage in the other import parameters?
    Thanks in advance for your hints.

  • Using XI Content for SRM 2007

    We are configuring a scenario for SRM which has following landscape
    ECC <=> SAP PI <=> SRM
    I am trying to use XI Content for SRM 7.0 and I have imported SAP SRM 7.0 Software component into ESR. But there are no Process Integration Scenarios which I can use to configure objects in Integration Directory using wizards. Also there are no IDoc imported in this SC and no mappings defined. Does that mean We have to create our own mappings? But this was not true when we used SRM 5.0 content.
    I am not able to find any document which talks how to configure PI scenario using SRM 7.0 XI Content. Do let me know if there is any?
    There is another thing which comes to my mind if SRM 7.0 XI Content is using web services instead of IDoc for communication with ECC system. If that is the case then i cannot find predefined proxy in ECC system and thus i have to create custom web service server proxy (where again i have to write custom code).
    Do let me know if anybody has used XI Content SRM 2007. So that I can get some help on this.

    Hi Divya,
    We have done with SRM 5.0 but not with SRM 7.0
    When i see content for SRM 7.0 in Market Place i donot find , From where did u get download those XI content for SRM 7.0 ???
    Did u find any Integration Scenarios depecting the flow , we used the same for the business flow.
    Please do update how u have proceeded.

  • Some questions about SAP esourcing

    Hi expert,
    I have one question about SAP eSourcing. In RFQ document, before RFQ award is published, our customer do not want the price of RFx response disclosed to collaborators. After the award is published, the price can be released to collaborators. As I know, we can use page customization to hide page field. But the price is collection field. So I failed to use page customization to hide it.
    Pls advise me how to realize it.

    Please go through the relevant pointers ->

  • Some questions about MS-Outlook

     Hello Team,
     I have some questions , if we have any folder in the MS-Outlook eg. Personal Folder, we can right click on this
    "Personal Folder", and click on "Close Personal Folder" ,
    this way we can remove this folder from the left panel of MS-Outlook but my question is that how can we bring this folder back into that panel?
    My other question is that when I open my MS-Outlook 2007 ,in the left panel of my MS-Outlook 2007, I see a
    "Personal Folder" ,
    when I right click on it ,the option of "Close Personal Folder" is disabled.
    Why is it disabled?
    How can I enable this option?

    It's easy to bring the personal folder back as long as you know where the .pst file is located, then follow the steps below:
    1.On the File menu, point to Open, and then click
    Outlook Data File.
    2.Click the .pst file that you want to open, and then click OK.
    The one you can't remove should be the default data file in your scenario, just as Kingson and Peter mentioned, and Kindson's link should be helpful to you to learn more about personal folders (.pst) file in Outlook.

  • I have some questions regarding setting up a software RAID 0 on a Mac Pro

    I have some questions regarding setting up a software RAID 0 on a Mac pro (early 2009).
    These questions might seem stupid to many of you, but, as my last, in fact my one and only, computer before the Mac Pro was a IICX/4/80 running System 7.5, I am a complete novice regarding this particular matter.
    A few days ago I installed a WD3000HLFS VelociRaptor 300GB in bay 1, and moved the original 640GB HD to bay 2. I now have 2 bootable internal drives, and currently I am using the VR300 as my startup disk. Instead of cloning from the original drive, I have reinstalled the Mac OS, and all my applications & software onto the VR300. Everything is backed up onto a WD SE II 2TB external drive, using Time Machine. The original 640GB has an eDrive partition, which was created some time ago using TechTool Pro 5.
    The system will be used primarily for photo editing, digital imaging, and to produce colour prints up to A2 size. Some of the image files, from scanned imports of film negatives & transparencies, will be 40MB or larger. Next year I hope to buy a high resolution full frame digital SLR, which will also generate large files.
    Currently I am using Apple's bundled iPhoto, Aperture 2, Photoshop Elements 8, Silverfast Ai, ColorMunki Photo, EZcolor and other applications/software. I will also be using Photoshop CS5, when it becomes available, and I will probably change over to Lightroom 3, which is currently in Beta, because I have had problems with Aperture, which, until recent upgrades (HD, RAM & graphics card) to my system, would not even load images for print. All I had was a blank preview page, and a constant, frozen "loading" message - the symbol underneath remained static, instead of revolving!
    It is now possible to print images from within Aperture 2, but I am not happy with the colour fidelity, whereas it is possible to produce excellent, natural colour prints using its "minnow" sibling, iPhoto!
    My intention is to buy another 3 VR300s to form a 4 drive Raid 0 array for optimum performance, and to store the original 640GB drive as an emergency bootable back-up. I would have ordered the additional VR300s already, but for the fact that there appears to have been a run on them, and currently they are out of stock at all, but the more expensive, UK resellers.
    I should be most grateful to receive advice regarding the following questions:
    I have had a look at the RAID setting up facility in Disk Utility and it states: "To create a RAID set, drag disks or partitions into the list below".
    If I install another 3 VR300s, can I drag all 4 of them into the "list below" box, without any risk of losing everything I have already installed on the existing VR300?
    Or would I have to reinstall the OS, applications and software again?
    I mention this, because one of the applications, Personal accountz, has a label on its CD wallet stating that the Licence Key can only be used once, and I have already used it when I installed it on the existing VR300.
    I understand that the failure of just one drive will result in all the data in a Raid 0 array being lost.
    Does this mean that I would not be able to boot up from the 4 drive array in that scenario?
    Even so, it would be worth the risk to gain the optimum performance provide by Raid 0 over the other RAID setup options, and, in addition to the SE II, I will probably back up all my image files onto a portable drive as an additional precaution.
    Is it possible to create an eDrive partition, using TechTool Pro 5, on the VR300 in bay !?
    Or would this not be of any use anyway, in the event of a single drive failure?
    Would there be a significant increase in performance using a 4 x VR300 drive RAID 0 array, compared to only 2 or 3 drives?
    If I used a 3 x VR300 RAID 0 array, and installed either a cloned VR300 or the original 640GB HD in bay 4, and I left the Startup Disk in System Preferences unlocked, would the system boot up automatically from the 4th. drive in the event of a single drive failure in the 3 drive RAID 0 array which had been selected for startup?
    Apologies if these seem stupid questions, but I am trying to determine the best option without foregoing optimum performance.

    Well said.
    Steps to set up RAID
    Setting up a RAID array in Mac OS X is part of the installation process. This procedure assumes that you have already installed Mac OS 10.1 and the hard drive subsystem (two hard drives and a PCI controller card, for example) that RAID will be implemented on. Follow these steps:
    1. Open Disk Utility (/Applications/Utilities).
    2. When the disks appear in the pane on the left, select the disks you wish to be in the array and drag them to the disk panel.
    3. Choose Stripe or Mirror from the RAID Scheme pop-up menu.
    4. Name the RAID set.
    5. Choose a volume format. The size of the array will be automatically determined based on what you selected.
    6. Click Create.
    Recovering from a hard drive failure on a mirrored array
    1. Open Disk Utility in (/Applications/Utilities).
    2. Click the RAID tab. If an issue has occurred, a dialog box will appear that describes it.
    3. If an issue with the disk is indicated, click Rebuild.
    4. If Rebuild does not work, shut down the computer and replace the damaged hard disk.
    5. Repeat steps 1 and 2.
    6. Drag the icon of the new disk on top of that of the removed disk.
    7. Click Rebuild.
    Drive A + B = VOLUME ONE
    Drive C + D = VOLUME TWO
    What you put on those volumes is of course up to you and easy to do.
    A system really only needs to be backed up "as needed" like before you add or update or install anything.
    /Users can be backed up hourly, daily, weekly schedule
    Media files as needed.
    Things that hurt performance:
    Page outs
    Spotlight - disable this for boot drive and 'scratch'
    SCRATCH: Temporary space; erased between projects and steps.
    (normally I'd link to Wikipedia but I can't load right now)
    Disk drives are the slowest component, so tackling that has always made sense. Easy way to make a difference. More RAM only if it will be of value and used. Same with more/faster processors, or graphic card.

  • Some questions about configuration in MAX.

    I have some questions about configuration in MAX(I am a jackaroo for motion control development),I hope I can get your help.
    I use PCI-7344+UMI-7764+Servo amplifier+Servo motor,my MAX version is 4.2 and I use NI-Motion7.5
    My question as following:
    1,In Axis Configuration,for motor type,why I must select stepper but not servo?my motor is servo motor!If I select Servo,my motor can't run,I don't know why.
     If I select stepper,though motor can work but I can't test encoder in MAX.
    2,In Stepper settings,for stepper loop mode,why I must select open-loop but not close-loop?If I select close-loop,the servo motor doesn't work too.
    3,If I want my two servo motors run at different velocity,How shoud I do?It seems I just can set the same velocity in MAX for my two servo motors.
     My English is poor,Pls pardon me!I come from China.
    Thank you for your help!
    Striving is without limit!

    Thank you for your kindly help!
    The manufacturer of the drive and motor that I am using now is Japan SANYO DENKI,drive type is RS1A01AA,motor type is R2AA06020FXP00.
    And I use position control mode,thehe encoder's counts per revolution is 131072.I set the electronic gear ratio to 1:1 for drive.
    Now,I can use Close-Loop to control the motor but still has some problems.When I configure it to run in closed loop mode, the motors behave strangely and never move to the target position.When I configure it to run in closed loop mode, the motors behave strangely and never move to the target position.The detail situation is as following
    1,Motor can't run.
    2, Or motor moves to a position, then moves in the same direction agian and eventually stops.
    Except for the  two points mentioned above,"Following Error" is  occured frequently,I don't know why.
    I am still not clear why I must set the motor type be stepper in MAX .
    And I have another question:what the relationship between the steps and the counts?They have the proportion relations?I notice that there are a section said like this in help document: For proper closed-loop and p-command operation, steps per revolution/counts per revolution must be in the range of 1/32,767 < steps/counts < 32,767. An incorrect counts to steps ratio can result in failure to reach the target position and erroneous closed-loop stepper operation.
    I am verry sorry I have too many questions!
    I am very appreciate for your kingly help!Thanks again!

  • Some Questions on Adobe PDF Forms

    I have some questions on Adobe Forms development (especially Adobe Forms in ABAP)
    1)     In a form interface, in the Code Initialization can we use Object Oriented Syntaxes such as class method calls, etc?
    2)     Can we declare Global Data variables with reference to Class References / Interfaces
    3)     Can we use the latest ECC 6.0 enhancement framework to add code in the standard form interface to enhance / enrich some logic within the form? This is to avoid copying the form interface into a Z in order to enrich the form via coding?
    Please let me know if this is possible at all and how
    Will award points
    Thanking You in advance

    That is possible of course. You should use the PDFObject API for that requirements.
    1. define a xml schema with all data given by SAP system.
    2. create a form template which uses this schema as data connection
    3. implement a java application (i.e. J2EE application) which:
    - gets the data from SAP system and generates some pdf files (using PDFObject API)
    - reads pdf files back to xml and submits the data to a BAPI

  • Some questions on SAP DMS

    some questions on SAP DMS:-
    - can versions of same document be shown graphically. ?
    - can links be created for documents. can we make sure that links are not broken when document is moved ?(links to document on 1st location shall not be broken)
    - is there a notification mechanism(user can recieve e-mail when document gets changed)
    - is there a review mechanism, before doc. is archived.(sort life cycle)

    Hi Shovon,
    1. can versions of same document be shown graphically?
    You can display all existing versions of a document info record by using the menu 'Extras' >> 'Versions'. Then you will see all existing document version for this specific document number. Further you will see which is the current version at the moment.
    2. can links be created for documents. can we make sure that links are not broken when document is moved ?(links to document on 1st location shall not be broken)
    I'm not quite sure what you mean by links to documents. If you mean linking document info records together, I can confirm that this works also in DMS. You can maintain the object DRAW for object links in the customizing and then you will be able to link one document info record to another. The data for all document info records is stored in table DRAW.
    If you are talking about originals which are linked to document info records, please note that if you check in an original the system creates a unique LOIO- and PHIO-ID which is stored in the Content Server and in the database tables DMS_DOC2LOIO and DMS_PHIO2FILE. But there are also different reports to migrate original data from one content Server to another (e.g. DMS_RELOCATE_CONTENT).
    3. Is there a notification mechanism(user can recieve e-mail when document gets changed)
    Yes you can activate an event type linkage for object
    in transaction SWE2. Here you just have to set the flag for 'Type linkage' (linkage activated). Then everytime the document is changed a notification is sent to the entered USER of this document info records.
    4. Is there a review mechanism, before doc. is archived.(sort life cycle)
    Normally there is no special lifecycle. You can control this by maintaining a released status and if there are more versions always version with the release status is the current one. But there is no specific date when the document info record expires or something like that.
    Best regards,
    P.S.: Please reward points for useful information.

  • Some questions on versioning and synchronizing metadata

    Hy all!
    I am quite new to warehousing and Oracle Warehouse Builder, and so i would have some questions regarding on some common issues. I would appriciate if you guys would who have experience in this domain to share some good practice knowledge :)
    I am using OWB 10.2
    So first of all i would like to know if you have some proposal of the way of versioning control and synchronizing projects between team memebers when working on a bigger project, team memebers that don't work on the same repository (cause i saw that OWB has an integrated multiuser support for handeling object locks and user sessions).
    I saw that a way of migrating data from one place to a nother is using the import/export options integrated in OWB. This creates mdl files wich are some kind of "dumps" of the metadata informations, but the thing with these mdl files wich i don't think is a good way to synchronize is that first of all the .mdx and .xml files contained in the .mdl (wich is kind of a zip) contains many informations in it (like creation date, some timestamps, etc) wich are always updated when exporting, and if synchronizing these files maybee using CVS, we always will get differences between the files alltough they would contain the same thing, only timestamps changed.
    Then a nother issue with this, is that we could have 2 alternatives: dump the whole project, wich is odd to have to synchronize a single file between users, especialy on a big project, then the orher way would be doing for each object from the project (each mapping, each table, etc) an separate .mdl filem then to synchronize each file of each object, wich will be unefficient on reimporting each file in part.
    So please if you can share the way you work on a big project with many implementers with OWB, i would really appriciate.
    A nother thing i would like to know is: is there a way to generate from an existing project (like one created with OWB) the OMB commands dump (maybee in a tcl script)? Cause i saw that the way the exeprienced users implement warehousing is using TCL with OMB language. I downloaded the example from oracle for warehouse project, and i saw that is entirely made from tcl scripts (so no mdl file involved). And this i think would be nice, to have the OMB commands generated from an existing projects.
    I see this OWB projects like a database wich can be built up from only OMB commands and OWB a graphical tool to do this (same as constructing a database only from DDL commands or using SQL developer to do this), this is why i am asking about a way of dumping the OMB commands for creating an OWB project.
    Please give me some advices, and correct me if i sad some dumb things :D but i really am new to warehousing and i would really appriciate if you guys with experience could share some informations.
    Thank you verry much!

    Depends. Having everyone working on the same project certainly simplifies things a lot regarding merging and is generally my preference. But I also recognize that some projects are complex enough that people wind up stepping on each other's toes if this is the case. In those cases, though, I try to minimize the issue of merging changes by having common structural objects (code libraries, tables, views, etc) retained in a single, strictly controlled, central project schema and having the developer's personal work areas reference them by synonym, thus being unable to alter them to the detriment of others.
    If they want to change a common object then need to drop their synonym and make a local copy which they can alter, and then there is a managed process by which these get merged back into the main project schema.
    This way any changes MUST go through a central schema, we can put processes in place to notify all of the team of any impending changes, and can also script updates across the team.
    Every hour a script runs automatically that checks for dropped synonyms and notifies the project leader. It especially checks for two developers who have built local copies of the same object and notifies each that they need to coordinate with each other as they are risking a conflict. When a structural change is submitted back to the central shared schema, it is added to a batch that is installed at end of business and a list of those impending changes is circulated to the team along with impact analysis for dependencies. The install script updates the main schema, then also drops the local copy of the object in the developer's schema who made the change and re-establishes the synonym there to get back to status quo for the change monitoring. Finally, it then updates itself in all of the developer areas via OMBPlus. So, each morning the developers return to an updated and synched environment as far as the underlying structure.
    This takes care of merging structural issues, and the management of the team should minimize other metadata merging by managing the worklist of who is to be working on a given mapping or process flow at a given time. Anyone found to be doing extraneous changes to a mapping or process flow when it is not in their job queue without getting pre-approval will be spoken to VERY firmly as this is counter to policy. And yes, OWB objects such as mappings are then also coordinated to the central project via import/export. OMBplus scripts also propogate these changes daily across the team as well.
    Yep, there is a whole lot of scripting involved to get set up.... but it saves a ton of time merging things and solvinv conflicts down the road.

  • Some questions on whitespace and &

    Dear all,
    I have some questions on whitespace and & that need you kind help:
    1. Except /n /t /r and space, is there any characters that are whiteSpace characters?
    2. When parsing XML document, when the ignorableWhitespace() method is called? Will it be called from characters() ?
    e.g. Where the white space after <a> is called, and where is the white space between test1 and test 2 indied <b> is called?
       <b>test1 test2</b>
    </a>  3. When the & should be escaped in a well-formed (or validated) XML file by replacing &?
    It should be excaped in any element content, such as <b>test1 & test2< /b> - except for <![CDATA[ section?
    It should NOT always be used in attributes? e.g. <a b="test1 & test2"/>  - has to do escaped by entity & - am I right?

    Thanks DrClap.
    2. When parsing XML document, when the
    ignorableWhitespace() method is called? Will it be
    called from characters() ?It will be called when the document has a DTD and the
    parser is a validating one that is actually
    validating, when the parser sees whitespace that is
    not part of a DTD element. It will not be called from
    characters() because that is a method that you write.I wrote a contentHandler and using Xerces parser to parse an XML document. When I set validating feature to false, I found that for:
       <b>test1 test2</b></a>The white space between <a> and <b> (including newline) is actually called from characters(), not in ignorableWhitespace(). So does this mean that if validating - white space is always called from ignorableWhitespace(), and if not validating, if it is always called from characters()?
    3. When the & should be escaped in a well-formed(or
    validated) XML file by replacing &? The XML Recommendation says "The ampersand character
    (&) and the left angle bracket (<) may appear
    in their literal form only when used as markup
    delimiters, or within a comment, a processing
    instruction, or a CDATA section. If they are needed
    elsewhere, they must be escaped using either numeric
    character references or the strings "&" and
    "<" respectively."So in this sense, both & in <b>test1 & test2< /b> and <a b="test1 & test2"/> is illegal unless replacing them by & - right? What does the markup delimiters mena in above XML Recommendation ? Example?

  • Some questions on filter

    Hi Experts,
    I have some questions on IP. I am comfortable working with BPS but I dont know how they work in IP.
    1) Suppose we take an example
    I have put filter on some char. say "Sales Region" from values A to D. and now I associate a planning function repost values (with filter) for only A "Sales Region" (So I keep only value A in fields for condition)
    So Question is will sales region B to D will be locked for write access for some other operation ??
    And in BPS there is no concept like locking on basis of filters put on Planning Level and Planning Package right ???
    Entire transactional cube is locked for any other user if some user is running a layout in a particular Planning Area even if filter conditions in Planning Level and Planning Package do not overlap in any other layout on same Info Area ?? m i correct ??
    Ask me if I am not clear in explaining.
    Good conceptual answers would be really appriciated.

    Hi Mayank,
    Thank you for your answer. I tried and tested ur BPS answer regarding locking at planning package. It works well.Before I used to restrict at planning level.
    But once I restrict at package and hit "save all" as well as "save modal" and log off the system those filters get removed when I relogin and see the same package. Why is this so ???
    Would like to hear from you....
    Thank again,
