SAP ISU – DM – Install, Remove and Replacement Device with Date Time and Time Zone

This is available As of SAP Enhancement Package 7, Support Package 4 for SAP ERP 6.0.

SAP ISU always uses the Date for device install and removal. If you remove the device today then it always use -1 to the date (you have an option to change them for the interval meter to use the same date – configuration). So installation time is 00:00 and the removal time is 23:59.

With the new AMI integration other system needs the exact time. Even though you have the time still billing runs on daily basis. So this is for information only for you and for other MDUS systems.

You need to activate the business process ISU_AMI_4C (swithc ISU_AMI_4_DTI).

Time zone is inherited from the Connection Object or from the system Default.

See SAP Notes:  1973413 – IS-U: Interface note – timestamp for More detail.

Couple of SAP Screen Shots.



Hope helps. Check out the Notes It should take you to the right direction.

Learn SAP — Batch Data Communication BDC

In this post let us see how to use BDC on a program or function module to input from a text file or excel in batch mode.

Learn SAP — Parallel Processing in ABAP programing

In this post let us see how we can write a parallel processing report. I explained here and the code is at end of the post.

 The usual way of programming is serial processing. The program executes one line at a time and if you call a function that will wait until the control returns from the function and executes the rest of the code. In some case you might be calling the same function again and again for different set of master data. You know that there wont be any conflict between the data and you would like to execute the same function multiple times with different set of data. We need to do this in parallel processing this way the process will be completed much faster with multiple processes in different servers. Let us see how we can achieve this with an example.
