Variant for multiple reports

Hi Experts,
Does anyone know if it's possible to create variants that serve for multiple reports?  If so, how?
I have 10 very similar reports which use the same selection screen defined in an include for all of them.
Regards,
Simon

Hi,
It is not possible to create variant for multiple reports as it is said as
you must create a separate variant for each report and then save it with the report where the values will be used.

  • How to Save Multiple Variants for a Report at a time?

    Hi Experts,
    I have a report in one server and I have copied the same into another server.
    And now I also have to copy the variants of that report.
    There are totally 192 variants for the report. So, is there any easier way to copy all those variants for the new report that I have created, rather than re-creating the variants one-by-one manually.
    Note:There is no connection to both the servers. So I cannot transport them.
    Thanks in advance.

    Basis can do a export and import transport, still if don't have connection between boxes.
    or

  • Prompt used as view selector for multiple reports

    Hi All,
    Can a dashboard prompt be used as View Selector for multiple reports? If yes, please let me know how?
    Thanks
    Sumita

    Hi Sumita,
    You can do this with Dashboard prompts, but it's a little tricky. I'll highlight the process below. Keep In mind I assume you have three reports already created and have three views: View 1, View 2 and View 3.
    Phase I: The Dashboard Prompt
    1. Create a new dashboard prompt.
    2. Add any single column to your prompt. It doesn't really matter which one (just make sure nothing is prompted on it to be safe).
    3. For the sake of this example, I'll assume we added column: "Test Folder"."Test Field"
    4. Make sure your Operator is "is equal to/is in"
    5. Make sure the control is "Drop-down List"
    6. Change the Show to "SQL Results"
    7. Write a SQL statement similar to the following (TEST =<your subject area>, "Test Folder"."Test Field" = <your column>):
    SELECT CASE WHEN 1=2 THEN "Test Folder"."Test Field" ELSE 'View 1' END
    FROM TEST
    UNION
    SELECT CASE WHEN 1=2 THEN "Test Folder"."Test Field" ELSE 'View 2' END
    FROM TEST
    UNION
    SELECT CASE WHEN 1=2 THEN "Test Folder"."Test Field" ELSE 'View 3' END
    FROM TEST
    **Note: The reason why we need to do the CASE statement is because every logical query needs at least 1 presentation column. The case statement is a way to include the presentation column, but since the statement 1=2 is never true, we always use the ELSE condition.
    8. Set a presentation variable. Call it VIEW_PVAR
    9. Have the Prompt default to Specific Value: View 1
    10. Save the Dashboard Prompt and put it into the Dashboard with your reports.
    Phase II: Filter Reports
    1. Create a new Answer request
    2. Bring in your test column twice
    3. Change the formula (fx) on the second column to be: '@{VIEW_PVAR}{View 1}'
    4. Now add a filter to the presentation variable column
    5. Set the operator to "is equal to/is in' and set the value to: View 1
    6. Save the Request as "View 1 Filter"
    7. Change the value in the filter to: View 2
    8. Save the Request as "View 2 Filter"
    9. Change the value in the filter to: View 3
    10. Save the Request as "View 3 Filter"
    Phase III: Guided Navigation
    1. Create three sections in your dashboard
    2. Rename each section to: View 1, View 2 and View 3 respectively
    3. For each of the sections, do the following:
    3a. Click on properties
    3b. Click on Guided navigation
    3c. Set the Guided Navigation to the appropriate Filter report
    4. For each of the three sections, do the following:
    4a. Add in all three requests
    4b. Click on the request properties and select Show and the appropriate view for that section
    5. Save your changes to your Dashboard
    Good luck and if you found this post useful, please award points!

  • How to setup variants for webdynpro report in ABAP? Help!

    Hi Experts,
       I have a webdynpro for ABAP report with selection screen. 
       How to setup variants for webdynpro report in ABAP?
    Thanks
    Gopal

    Hi Gopal,
      There is no concept of Variant in Webdynpro ABAP. But in our project we have some tool to do that. Its not release to the client I think. In my scenarieo, We create the Screen variant and program name will be supplied to the tool that will generate the ouput in PDF and Selection screen in One view. But the same is not avilable .
    If you want the same concept in Webdynpro ABAP, you need to go for Dynamic programming only. This is the only option is avilable.
    Warm Regards,

  • Can we use the built-in Row fetch for Multiple reports in a page?

    I need to create a page with multiple report regions. Each of it is based on a table. Those tables are different. I somewhat remembered that we can NOT use the built in automatic row fetch process if there are multiple report regions, neither the built in DML process. You have to make your own fetch and insert/update/delete process if you intend to.
    Also if I write my own row fetch and update processes, do I have to consider lock mechnism? or just simply write select and insert/update?
    Any input is appreciated.

    I think I found the answer. Would Scott or other gurus take a look at the thread and confirm it, in case the limitation is not in 2.0?
    Re: automatic row fetch
    What I am concered about is that the locking mechanism. If I have to write my own process to fetch and insert/update, other than the regular select and insert/update statements, do I have to put commit by myself, or htmldb can handle it automatically? Is there an example for this?
    Thanks in advance.

  • BO xi 3.1 u2013 schedule a template for multiple reports with different column

    Hi,
    I need to migrate the existing reports from SQL Server Reporting Services to BO, and the column order in the report is very important to the clients since clients have existing code to ingest these reports into their database. Now I want to schedule a single template with different parameters for all reports in BO, or create a single template with lot of parameters for all reports. My question is how I might use one template to create multiple reports with different column orders in the reports?
    For example, client A has the following column order in their report: firstName, LastName, DateBirth, SSN. Client B has the following column order in their report: SSN, DateBirth, LastName, FirstName. Can I use one template to create these multiple reports?
    Thanks!

    Hi,
    The only approach I can think of is to create a template report which uses variables
    For each column you would need to variable
    v_columnAName and v_columnAValue
    v_columnAName would have a if statement in it
    =if([client]="clientA" or [client]="clientC";NameOf([firstName]);if([client]="clientB";NameOf([SSN]);NameOf([lastName]));
    v_columnA would have a if statement in it
    =if([client]="clientA" or [client]="clientC";[firstName];if([client]="clientB";[SSN],[lastName]));
    This would only work when you had a small set of clients.
    This might be more managable if it was done in the universe

  • Selection variant for a report painter

    Hi,
    I created a report painter report. I want to create a default selection variant for a specific user. For example, I want user GIRARDJU to have company code=ADM, period 6 to period 13. I tried to create a variant and call it U_GIRARDJU but it doesn't work like it does for the standard SAP reports...
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks a lot,
    Julien

    Hi,
    First go to the report you have created.
    Then save the selection criteria you want & give an appropriate name to your variant (eg: /INOKA).
    When you execute the report next time, this variant will be there, & by double clicking it you'll get the saved information.
    Best regards,
    Inoka.

  • Design a single template for multiple reports with different column order

    Hi,
    I need to migrate the existing reports from SQL Server Reporting Services to Crystal Report 2008, and the column order in the report is very important to the clients since clients have existing code to ingest these reports into their database. Now I want to create a single template with lot of parameters for all reports. My question is how I might use one template to create multiple reports with different column orders in the reports?
    For example, client A has the following column order in their report: firstName, LastName, DateBirth, SSN. Client B has the following column order in their report: SSN, DateBirth, LastName, FirstName. Can I use one template to create these multiple reports?
    Thanks in advance.

    -As I mentioned you can find Template Field object in Insert menu of crystal report Designer 2008.
    As soon as you select Template Field object you will be able to see a box beside ur mouse cursor. Drag and drop this box at required place. Now when you place this object in report you will get some thing like this "<TemplateField1>" listed under Formula Fields tree. Double click "<TemplateField1>" formula to add your conditions.
    -I have not tested it for large amount of Customers. However as the number of customer increases the number of conditions will get increased.
    For the customer that want the same ordering of columns you can put those customers under one condition.
        for Example...
              if(?Client in ['clientA','clientA']) then
                        <TableName>.<Field>......
    -What do you mean be 40 columns? Do you mean 40 fields or you want to show 40 columns in report? Please elaborate.

  • Non scrollable headers for multiple report regions on a page. Please help!!

    Hi everyone,
    I am having two report regions on my page and am trying to have the static/non scrollable headers for both the report regions. I followed on of the threads in the forum and was able get the static headers for one region, but am not able to for second region. I put my app on apex :
    http://apex.oracle.com/pls/otn/f?p=38724:1:1083512384327081:::::

    Can anyone please help me? Appreciate your help.
    regards,
    Suma.

    Hello Suma,
    The first parameter of the MakeStaticHeader() function is your table id, and it defines the "playground" of the function. If you want to apply static headers to two reports, you need to define two unique IDs, one for each report.
    Change your SKstandard… report template, and define the table ID to be "table_grab1". Duplicate this template, and change the ID to be "table_grab2". Applied the templates to your reports, and use the correlated IDs as parameters to the MakeStaticHeader() function.

  • Variants for SAP reports

    Hi All,
                In my client Shop Floor Users are daily using the transaction COOIS to know the order information. We created a variant for that, even though every time users has to select the variant from the list to execute the transaction.
    Working Environment: ECC 5.0
    Question: 1
    Is there can we set this variant globally i.e., when ever (who ever) getting in to the screen will automatically executed with the defined variant value.
    Additional info: Variant values have to be populated in the selection screen of the transaction COOIS automatically, who ever enter in to the screen.
    Question: 2
    Is there can I define variant specific to the user i.e., when ever the corresponding user login in to system with the specific user id and get in to the transaction will automatically executed with the user specific variant value.
    Additional info: Variant values have to be populated in the selection screen of the transaction COOIS automatically, when the specific users enter in to the screen.
    Please guide me the step by step procedure to the above (Question 1 & Question 2)
    Thanks in Advance.

    Variants can be of 2 types.
    1: Global: This means it can be used by anyone whoever logs in
    2: User Specific: This means it can be user specific and other users may not see it.
    Create user specific variants for individual users.

  • Variant for a Report

    Hello..
    I have a report which has date as select option..
    This report executes both in foreground and in background...
    In foreground it runs for the date the user enters...
    In background I want it should run for the current system date..The report will be scheduled daily at 11 pm. so each day it should take the current date as its input ...
    How is this possible???

    Hi,
    If you are using SAP 4.7 versions, while saving the variant:
    Give the variant name and description.
    Click the check box, only for background processing.
    Then for the date variable , in the field attributes, click check box Selection variable. Then press selection variables button. Press Dynamic date calculation (Traffic light for D column will turn green).
    Then click the list box, and select Current date.
    Save the variant.
    If it is ECC 6.0,
    Click the check box, only for background processing.
    Then in the selection variable column for the DATE field, There will be an F4 help. Select D - Dynamic date calculation.
    Then in name of variable (Input only using F4 column), press F4 and choose 'Current date'.
    This is an easy solution by using Variants. There is no need to change your code, if you use this method.

  • One ibot for multiple reports (or all reports in one topic/folder)

    Hello,
    Is it possbile to set the ibot for report caching to consider a whole bunch of reports rather than setting
    up one ibot for every single report?
    Regards,
    metalray

    Hello ADB,
    Thanks for that. I wonder how to prove that the caching worked or that is has been done.
    I noticed the .TBL files in the cache directory but that does not tell me much. Using OBI Administration and looking at the cache on the physical layer
    did not help me either understand how all reports in my dashboard are now cached by running the ibot at midnight.
    Out of the BI Answers, Delivers and Dashboards manual:
    "NOTE: The Oracle BI Server maintains its own cache. This cache is separate from the Oracle BI
    Presentation Services cache.
    When you select a specific dashboard or request, Oracle BI Presentation Services checks its cache
    to determine if the identical results have recently been requested. If so, Oracle BI Presentation
    Services returns the most recent results, thereby avoiding unnecessary processing by the Oracle BI
    Server and the back-end database. If not, the request is issued to the Oracle BI Server for
    processing."
    So basically I want to know how I can see that BI Presentations Services has
    really cached the reports in my dashboard i.e. if my ibot works
    Thanks,

  • Report Painter: Create variant for specific report created

    Hello,
    My knowledge in very weak in report painter.
    In the initial screen of a report created to analyse the budget by internal order whe have the year and the period of analysis.
    By default, for every user the year is 2010 and the period of analysis is from month 1 to month 1.
    My question, and I am sorry to ask such a simple question, is how can we change this initial screen?
    The aim is to have for every user, when connecting the report, by default the year 2011 and the period of analysis from month 1 to month 16?
    Thank you.
    Best Regards.

    Hi
    1. Go to GRR3 and identify the variable used in your report
    2. Go to GS12 / GS13 and check the variable definition
    May be some default value is specified there / or it is formula variable... Double click on the formula variable and you can check how it is defined...
    For the variable related to PERIOD - You need to specify a different variable for the From & To and specify the default value as 1 and 16
