How to add a calculated field in a list definition (schema.xml)?

I'm currently trying to add a calculated field to a list definition (schema.xml).
I have put the following code at the end of the schema.xml for the list I want to create. But when I deploy and activate the feature for the list, it doesn't appear in the list field.
<Field ID="{EE20EC4B-4216-4259-A84F-C478CE42B70F}" Name="EC_EventsMgmt_CalculatedTime" StaticName="EC_EventsMgmt_CalculatedTime" Group="EC_EventsMgmt" Type="Calculated" DisplayName="Calculated Time" Required="TRUE" Hidden="FALSE" ReadOnly="FALSE" Format="DateTime"> <Formula>=DATE(2009,1,1)+TIME(EC_EventsMgmt_ScheduleHour,EC_EventsMgmt_ScheduleMinute,0)</Formula> <FieldRefs> <FieldRef Name="EC_EventsMgmt_ScheduleHour"/> <FieldRef Name="EC_EventsMgmt_ScheduleMinute"/> </FieldRefs> </Field>
Could you please give me some help and explain me why it is not working?
Thanks a lot.

Hi there.
If I understand correctly, you create this list within the same feature?
If so, the list isn't available during the propagation, and therefore the calculated field can't be added.
If this is the case, then you could work around this by adding a feature activated event handler to your feature and add the calculated field programmatically in that event.
Hope this helps.

    Please expalin about those concepts with full of screen shorts messages.
    Thank You.

    If you want to add extra standard fields (like one you mentioned), you can use Component Workbench and Copy the configuration and create your own configuration and make the "Available Fields" appear there.
    If the standrd field is not available, you can Add Context Node using wizard and make it visible.
    If its a custom field (a new one); you will have to use EEWB and add the fields and then make it visible in the UI using Component Workbench.

  • How to add a customer field or extn coll in the tab1&2&3..of a UDO doc?

    Hi Experts,
    Does anybody know how to add a customer field or extn collection in the unused  tabs like tab1& a UDO document?
    Thanks for your reply in advance.
    Thanks & Regards,

    Hi Subhasini - <br><br>
    It seems you have discovered that adding an extension field to the Project Suppliers collection is not possible; many of the collections in E-Sourcing do not support extensions and, even when they do, typically, the table view of the data cannot be changed to show the extension value (it would only show on a "details" page, for example.<br><br>
    The solution that you have proposed may work, although I think there is a slight mistake in your logic. I believe you are saying that the script would take data from the newly created extension collection and populate data in the out-of-the-box vendor collection. <br><br>
    In thinking about your solution, I believe the benefit is that any logic and reporting based on the standard collection continues to function correctly (e.g., creating an RFx from the Project will use the out-of-the-box vendor collection).<br><br>
    That being said, I generally am reluctant to do a "replace" of a standard collection with an extension collection as you propose. My recommendation is that you challenge the customer on the importance of this requirement. For example, could the code be maintained on the vendor record? Why is it maintained in Projects? If it is maintained in the vendor record, could you just populate a read only collection the Projects that shows the vendor and code? Could a report be written that can be launched from within the Project to show the values? How does the customer intend to use this field? Could the display name of the vendor object be the right place for it?<br><br>
    I hope these ideas are helpful.<br><br>

  • How to add one more field to an exist internal table

    hi abapers
    i am a very new abap programmer and just started learning it.
    i want to know How to add one more field to an exist internal table.
    lemme me put my question in a very simple way.
    i have a internal table having fields f1,f2,f3 and which also that internal also contains some data.
    now i want to add two more fields (mm & nn) to that internal table now.
    how can i do that.
    and i wanna know the websites names where i can find some brain teasing questions in abap programming.
    eagerly waiting for ur reply
    Maqsood A Khan

    Hi, MAQSOOD.
    You can insert more fields in your internal table like this.
    refer this code snippet.
    DATA : BEGIN OF tbl_itab OCCURS 0.
            INCLUDE STRUCTURE zsdtc009.
    DATA :  vkorg   LIKE vbak-vkorg,  "inserted one
            vtweg   LIKE vbak-vtweg,  "inserted one
            vkbur   LIKE vbak-vkbur,  "inserted one
            vkgrp   LIKE vbak-vkgrp,  "inserted one
           END OF tbl_itab.
    you can also read the book "Teach yourself abap in 21 days"
    but that book is just about basic concept of abap and report program.
    it doesn't give a lecture for on-line program.
    you can get pdf version books(about abap, sap...things) from sap.
    I wish I could help you.

  • Hi All ,How to add a new  field for MEDRUCK if we havea ZMEDRUCK

    Hi All ,
            How to add a new  field for MEDRUCK if we have a ZMEDRUCK
    Req: If I want to add a new field for the following text editor line :
    In that we will have
    &ekko-waers&    &komkfkwrt&
    (currency)       (numerics)
    Pls send the Code to make these changes .Pls its urgent

    If that field which you wants to add is available in one of the structures like EKKO,EKPO then you can add that field just beside the other fields
    If that field is not there in the any of the structures then you can define a variable using define command
    /: DEFINE  &VAR&
    / &VAR&  = <some value>
    or you can write subroutines to fetch the data from outside tables and can use those fields data in the script
