SAP BW versus R/3 Reporting
 -----Original Message-----Subject: BW versus R/3 ReportingDear All,Would it be sufficient just to Web-enable R/3 Reports ? Why does one needto implement BW ? What are the major benefits of reporting with BW over R/3 ?Thanking you,-----Reply Message-----Subject: RE: BW versus R/3 ReportingThere are quite a few companies that share your thought but R/3 was designedas a OLTP system and not an analytical and reporting system. In factdepending on you needs you can even get away with a reporting instance(quite easy with Sun or EMC storage) Yes you can run as many reports as youneed from R/3 and web enable them but consider these factors.1: Performance -- heavy reporting along with regular OLTP transactions can produce a lot of load both on the R/3 and the database (cpu, memory, disks,etc). Just take a look at the load put on your system during a month end,quarter end, or year end -- now imagine that occurring even more frequently.2: Data analysis -- BW uses a Data Ware house and OLAP concepts for storingand analyzing data. Where R/3 was designed for transaction processing. Witha lot of work you can get the same analysis out of R/3 but most likely would be easier from a BW.Regards,-----Reply Message-----Subject: RE: BW versus R/3 ReportingMajor benefits of BW include:1) By offloading ad-hoc and long running queries from production R/3 systemto BW system, overall system performance should improve on R/3.2) Another key performance benefit with BW is the database design. It isdesigned specifically for query processing, not data updating and OLTP.Within BW, the data structures are designed differently and are much better suited for reporting than R/3 data structures. For example, BW utilizes star schema design which includes fact and dimension tables with bit-mapped
 
indexes. Other important factors include the built-in support for aggregates, database partitioning, more efficient ABAP code by utilizingTRFC processing versus IDOC.3) Better front-end reporting within BW. Although the BW excel front-end hasit's problems, it provides more flexibility and analysis capability than theR/3 reporting screens.4) BW has ability to pull data from other SAP or non-SAP sources into aconsolidated cube.In summary, BW provides much better performance and stronger data analysiscapabilities than R/3.
emoving '#' in Analyzer (Report)
 
In ODS, there are records having a value BLANK/EMPTY for some of the fields.EX: Field: `Creation Date' and there is no value for some of the records.For the same, when I execute the query in Analyzer, the value `#' is displaying inplace of `BLANK' value for DATE and other Characteristic fields. Here, I want toshow it as `BLANK/SPACE' instead of `#'. How to do this?
I had a similar problem and our client didn't want to see # signs in the report. And this iswhat I did. I created a marco in Workbook as SAPBEXonRefresh and run my code inVisual Basic editor. You can run same code in query also as when you will refresh querythis # sign will be taken care. You can see similar code in SAP market place.I will still suggest not to take out # sign as this represent no value in DataMart. And thisis SAP standard. I did convince my client for this and later they were OK with it.The codes are below:Sub SAPBEXonRefresh(queryID As String, resultArea As Range)If queryID = "SAPBEXq0001" ThenresultArea.Select'Remove '#'Selection.Cells.Replace What:="#", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlWhole, _ SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, MatchByte:=True'Remove 'Not assigned'Selection.Cells.Replace What:="Not assigned", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlWhole, _ SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, MatchByte:=True
 
End If ' Set focus back to top of resultsresultArea(1, 1).Select
How To Convert Base Units Into Target Units In BWReports
 
My client has a requirement to convert the base units of measurements into targetunits of measurements in BW reports. How to write the conversion routine andotherwise pls refer conversion routine used so that the characteristic value(key) of an infoobject can be displayed or used in a different format to how they are storedin the database.
 Have a look at the how to document "HOWTO_ALTERNATE_UOM2"or You can use the function module 'UNIT_CONVERSION_SIMPLE'CALL FUNCTION 'UNIT_CONVERSION_SIMPLE'EXPORTINGinput = ACTUAL QUANTITY* NO_TYPE_CHECK = 'X'* ROUND_SIGN = ' 'unit_in = ACTUAL UOMunit_out = 'KG' ( UOM YOU WANT TO CONVERY )IMPORTING* ADD_CONST =* DECIMALS =* DENOMINATOR =* NUMERATOR =output = w_output-h_qtyin_kg* EXCEPTIONS* CONVERSION_NOT_FOUND = 1* DIVISION_BY_ZERO = 2* INPUT_INVALID = 3* OUTPUT_INVALID = 4* OVERFLOW = 5* TYPE_INVALID = 6* UNITS_MISSING = 7* UNIT_IN_NOT_FOUND = 8* UNIT_OUT_NOT_FOUND = 9* OTHERS = 10.
