What are the tables/view used to Compute Dependecies Report

Hi,
what are the tables/views we have in APEX, which is used to create the Compute Dependecies Report
Home -> Application xxxxx > Application Reports > Shared Components > Database Object Dependencies
thanks,
Deepak

Hi Scott,
thanks for the quick response.
So my question is then...
I want to create a APEX Report which will give me the following information.
1. Application and all the Pages associated with it, which I am getting from apex_applications and
apex_application_pages. This is OK
2. List of all the Database Objects (Table/View) which the individual page is using, I mean relation between Page ID and database object. HOW to get that???.....(I want for each individual page, the list all the database objects (tables/views), which that page is using)
Thanks,
Deepak

  • If we open a transaction i need to find what are the tables used

    hi gurus
    can anyone suggest me
    if we open a transaction  liek va01
    i need to find what are the tables used
    what are the fields used in that transaction
    i need a list .
    thanks&regards
    kals.

    Hi
    you can find all those details in transaction variant,
    go with SHD0 ( numerical 0) and then enter your transaction code and enter transaction variant name and then select that
    Select the program SAPMV45A and go CHANGE WITH PROCESSING (F6),
    there you can find the list of fields and field names.
    reward points if usful.

  • What are the advantages of using an internal table with workarea

    Hi,
    can anyone tell me
    What are the advantages of using an internal table with workarea
    over an internal table with header line?
    thnks in adv
    regards
    nagi

    HI,
    Internal tables are a standard data type object which exists only during the runtime of the program. They are used to perform table calculations on subsets of database tables and for re-organising the contents of database tables according to users need.
    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/fc/eb35de358411d1829f0000e829fbfe/content.htm
    <b>Difference between Work Area and Header Line</b>
    While adding or retrieving records to / from internal table we have to keep the record temporarily.
    The area where this record is kept is called as work area for the internal table. The area must have the same structure as that of internal table. An internal table consists of a body and an optional header line.
    Header line is a implicit work area for the internal table. It depends on how the internal table is declared that the itab will have the header line or not.
    e.g.
    data: begin of itab occurs 10,
    ab type c,
    cd type i,
    end of itab. " this table will have the header line.
    data: wa_itab like itab. " explicit work area for itab
    data: itab1 like itab occurs 10. " table is without header line.
    The header line is a field string with the same structure as a row of the body, but it can only hold a single row.
    It is a buffer used to hold each record before it is added or each record as it is retrieved from the internal table. It is the default work area for the internal table
    1) The difference between
    whih header line and with out heater line of internal table.
    ex:-
    a) Data : itab like mara occurs 0 with header line.
    b) Data: itab like mara occurs 0.
    -While adding or retrieving records to / from internal table we have to keep the record temporarily.
    -The area where this record is kept is called as work area for the internal table.
    -The area must have the same structure as that of internal table. An internal table consists of a body and an optional header line.
    -Header line is a implicit work area for the internal table. It depends on how the internal table is declared that the itab will have the header line or not.
    a) Data : itab like mara occurs 0 with header line.
    table is with header line
    b) Data: itab like mara occurs 0.
    table is without header line
    2)work area / field string and internal table
    which one is prefarable for good performance any why ?
    -The header line is a field string with the same structure as a row of the body, but it can only hold a single row , whereas internal table can have more than one record.
    In short u can define a workarea of an internal table which means that area must have the same structure as that of internal table and can have one record only.
    Example code:
    data: begin of itab occurs 10,
    ab type c,
    cd type i,
    end of itab. " this table will have the header line.
    data: wa_itab like itab. " explicit work area for itab
    data: itab1 like itab occurs 10. " table is without header line.

  • What are the benefits of 64-bit computing?

    What are the benefits of 64-bit computing?
    From what I understand, the only benefits are the ability of the OS to address memory ranges beyond 2GB. Or is it 4GB? I can't remember.
    Anyway, I have no intention of expanding my Intel MacBook's memory beyond its built-in 2GB RAM.

    I think that the ram advantages of 64 bit computers is just a minor issue with most existing Mac computers. The average user today has between 2 to 8 GB's of ram. This amount of ram is easily handled by existing OS's like Leopard.
    I believe that the actual benefits for most users will be when the code of their applications is re-written to run in 64 bit code.
    From Apples Page on New Technologies: "It can also enable computers to crunch twice the data per clock cycle, which can dramatically speed up numeric calculations and other tasks." And on the same page: "64-bit applications can use more advanced security techniques to fend off malicious code".
    http://www.apple.com/macosx/technology/
    The 'twice the data per clock cycle' will affect all users regardless of how much ram they have or plan to buy for their machines. More data per cycle means more speed. Better security built into the OS is always a plus.
    This is why a MBP with a 3GB limit will still want to run a 64 bit application, and my new iMac with an 8GB limit will still benefit from Snow Leopard.
    I view all this extra memory abilities as something very far off for Mac users today. Ram prices will have to go down even lower, new machines will have to be bought with new ram management chips, etc.
    Meanwhile, most of Apple's applications are currently running in 64 bit even if the Kernal is running at 32 bit, and other companies (like Adobe) should be coming out with 64 bit versions of their applications. Most experts agree that since the Kernal runs very low-level functions, it won't benefit from 64-bit operation near as much as user applications.
    The big delays here, are for hardware drivers to work in 64 bit, and also for helper applications like Flash. Apple knew this going into the SL project. It's going to take a year or so until almost all of our programs are upgraded. Meanwhile, both 32 bit and 64 bit programs will run on Snow Leopard.

  • How to see what are the Tables avialable in DataBase

    Hi ,
    Is it possible to see what are the tables avialable in the Data base (I am using Oracle 10g Client )
    Thanks in advance .

    Thanks in advance .Learning where to look things up in the documentation is time well spent investing in your career. To that end, you should drop everything else you are doing and do the following:
    Go to tahiti.oracle.com. Drill down to your product and version.
    Spend a few minutes just getting familiar with what is available here. Take special note of the "books" and "search" tabs. Under the "books" tab you will find the complete documentation library.
    Spend a few minutes just getting familiar with what kind of documentation is available there by simply browsing the titles under the "Books" tab.
    Open the Reference Manual and spend a few minutes looking through the table of contents to get familiar with what kind of information is available there, especially the initialization parms and the data dictionary views.
    Do the same with the SQL Reference Manual.
    Do the same with the Utilities manual.
    Then set yourself a plan to dig deeper.
    - Read a chapter a day from the Concepts Manual.
    - Look in your alert log and find all the non-default initialization parms listed at instance startup. Then read up on each one of them in the Reference Manual.
    - Take a look at your listener.ora, tnsnames.ora, and sqlnet.ora files. Go to the Network Administrators manual and read up on everything you see in those files.
    - When you have finished reading the Concepts Manual, do it again.
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.

  • What are the tables will update while loading Master data ?

    Hello Experts,
    What are the tables will update while loading Master data ? And requesting you to provide more information about Master data loading and its related settings in the beginning of creation infoobjects. 

    It depends upon the type of Master data u r loading....
    In all the master data loadings, for every new value of master data an SID will be created in the SID table /BI*/S<INFOOBJECT NAME> irrespective of the type of master data.
    But the exceptional tables that get updated depending on the type of master data are.....
    If it is a time Independent master data then the /BI*/P<INFOOBJECT NAME> table gets updated with the loaded data.
    If it is a time dependent master data then the /BI*/Q<INFOOBJECT NAME> table gets updated with the loaded data.
    If the master data is of time Independent Navigational attributes then for every data load the SID table will get updated first and then the /BI*/X<INFOOBJECT NAME> table gets updated with the SID's created in the SID table (NOT WITH THE MASTER DATA).
    If the master data is of time dependent navigational attributes then for every data load the SID table will get updated first and then the /BI*/Y<INFOOBJECT NAME> table gets updated with the SID's created in the SID table (NOT WITH THE MASTER DATA).
    NOTE: As said above, For all the data in P, Q, T, X, Y tables the SID's will be created in the S table /BI*/S<INFOOBJECT NAME>
    NOTE: Irrespective of the time dependency or Independency the VIEW /BI*/M<INFOOBJECT NAME> defined on the top of /BI*/P<INFOOBJECT NAME> & /BI*/Q<INFOOBJECT NAME> tables gives the view of entire master data.
    NOTE: it is just a View and it is not a Table. So it will not have any physical storage of data.
    All the above tables are for ATTRIBUTES
    But when it comes to TEXTS, irrespective of the Time dependency or Independency, the /BI*/T<INFOOBJECT NAME> table gets updated (and of course the S table also).
    Naming Convention: /BIC/*<InfoObject Name> or /BI0/*<InfoObject Name>
    C = Customer Defined Characteristic
    0 = Standard or SAP defined Characteristic
    * = P, Q, T, X,Y, S (depending on the above said conditions)
    Thanks & regards

    What are the design documents does one prepare, please give an example. 
    Is cube a data target?

    What is an ageing report? What are the data sources used to develop an aging report
    Aging refers to values in different time period ranges. Example, the customer (credit) aging report can look like this.
    customer (credit)  for current period, 0 to 30 days, 30 to 90 days, 90 to 120 days. This is the way aging is classified.
    What data sources does one use to get Balance sheet and P&L accounts tables and fields.
    For P&L information, you may use 0FI_GL_6 datasource (or 0FI_GL_10 if you use ERP 5.0 version). This datasource reads the same information used in R/3 transaction f.01 (table glt0).
    What are the tasks a BW consultant normally performs when he is involved in an end to end implementation project or a full life cycle project?
    Requirement gathering, blueprint creation, development etc
    Refer to posts on Sap Methodology  and Sap lifecyle

  • Wiki or Robohelp - What are the benefits of using a wiki vs publishing projects in robohelp?

    What are the benefits of using a wiki vs publishing projects in robohelp? I currently use RH9/RH9 Server and  publish multiple SSL.  The company is looking to stop using Robohelp and replace our online help authoring tool  (RH) with a wiki. Are there any benefits of going to a wiki environment.  What RH features/functions that I have today will i not have by having IT import our robohelp files into a wiki?
    I know that a wiki is not an authoring tool, but someone must think it is and we'll still have all the functionality of publishing multiple SSLs, reports, etc once in the wiki environment.  Any comments - is this the best route?

    Hi,
    There are many differences. The idea of a wiki is to allow anyone to view and/or edit the content. Depending on the wiki system, you can set access control for viewing and editing.
    Wiki's typically have simple syntax (html in a wiki is a serious security risk), allow image embedding, links and attachments. You will need to learn the specific syntax (rather easy, but also very limited).
    What will you lose? This depends on the features available in the wiki system as well as the available plugins. A few downsides:
    - WYSIWYG editor limited, if at all.
    - No snippets
    - No variables
    - Dropdowns (may be possible through plugins)
    - Index
    - Styling based on css classes (mostly supported through HTML which is a security concern)
    - Only one version of your support system: multiple versions require multiple installations/configurations.
    - No searching in attachments.
    - No CBT (Though some wiki's allow comments in the wiki code)
    - No Word/FrameMaker import.
    - You have to create your own CSH calls.
    On the upside:
    - Most wiki systems are free, even for commercial use.
    - The syntax is quite simple, allowing you to quickly write text.
    - Wiki's typically offer good support for syntax highlighting.
    - They are very easy to set up.
    - Most wiki's have plugins to enable comments.
    The greatest downside in my opinion is that you always have the latest version of all files. Whenever you update a page, everyone immediately has the latest version. And if you want to create help for a feature that isn't released yet, you will have to use access control to make sure not everyone sees the (unfinished) help for the unreleased feature. With RoboHelp you have a single source that creates a one way output.
    We use both RoboHelp and wiki's: RoboHelp for customer help and wiki internally to share knowledge. And sharing knowledge is what wiki's are designed for.

  • What are the advantages of using LabVIEW projects in TestStand, as apposed to just a path to a vi

    What are the advantages of using LabVIEW projects in TestStand, as apposed to just a path to a vi ?
    I am modifying an existing workspace for a new product, and it seems like more work to add the vi's into a LabVIEW project
    does it gain anything in the long run

    Hi Rusty,
    I wanted to quickly clarify on the integration between TestStand and LabVIEW Projects.
    As Jeff mentioned, some of the big benefits of using LabVIEW Projects is to organize code and to namespace them.
    For instance if you had a project called "Power Supply" that housed all your power supply code and had a VI in that called "Initialize", and another project called "Temperature Chamber" that also had a VI called "Initialize", both these VIs are namespaced by the project, so there is no longer confusion about which "Initialize" VI is being used.
    Now from a TestStand point of view, in prior version of TestStand, we lost some of this benefit because TestStand did not know about TestStand projects and called VIs simply as un-namespaced VIs. However, in TestStand 2010 (released last year, free eval available at ni.com/teststand), we added the ability to (optionally) call VIs within the context of their projects. This means that:
    VIs are now namespaced by their project, even when called from TestStand
    VIs can use project specific constructs like NI-DAQmx tasks and conditional compilation settings
    Note: When creating deployments, the VIs maintain their projects and namespacing, so this benefit holds true for deployments as well.
    Additionally, someone had mentioned looking into using lvlibs to namespace your VIs for deployment. Two comments:
    With TestStand 2010, this is no longer neccessary since the project itself namespaces the VIs
    You might also want to look into LabVIEW Packed Project Libraries, which combined several VIs into a single file. Think of it as a DLL specific to LabVIEW that is as easy to call as normal LabVIEW VIs. TestStand 2010 can call VIs that are exposed by PPLs. In addition, the deployment utility can automatically pack your VIs into PPLs for deployment.
    Hope this is helpful!
