Display number of entries (and counts) in PM list edit reports (IW28, IW38, IP15, IP18, IH08. IW47 etc.)

Goal: Display number of entries (and counts) in PM list edit reports

Example: IW28 – List notification

I am sure many PM experts knows about this features, but hopefully this document will help new and upcoming users.

Steps:

  1. A selection of records is made using a PM list editing report. In this example IH08 is used.
  2. The “Count.” column is added to the layout

 

  1. Click green check mark
  2. Number of Entries (without Filtering) will be displayed

  1. If you add filter for any column(s), count will change by the number of entries in the header section of this report will not change.

Tip: To display totals line above the entries, check this box in the change layout ‘Display’ tab

Hopefully this will save time for users to export list to the spreadsheet in order to count number or rows.

 

You can use this to display ‘Number of Entries’ in many standard SAP reports

 

IW38 / IW39: List work orders with number of orders

IW28 / IW29 : List notifications with number of notifications

IP15 / IP16 : List maintenance plans with number of maintenance plans

IP18 / IP19 : List maintenance items with number of maintenance items

Enjoy!

Steps for opening and closing period – MM FI CO

Steps for opening and closing Period – MM FI CO

As many of us struggle with changing periods in our DEV and QA environments, here is quick reference for opening and closing period. In doubt, please consult with your FI/CO expert.

There can be upto four transaction involved depending on your situation.

•          MMRV – Allow posting to previous period

•          MMPV – Close Periods

•          OB52 – Change view “Posting Periods: Specify Time Intervals”: Overview

•          OKP1 – Maintain Period Lock

1. MMRV – View current period / Allow posting to previous period

This transaction allows you to view current period and change setting for posting to previous period.

2. MMPV – Close Periods

In MMPV you can execute period closing up to the end of the current fiscal year. The period closing program updates the administration record, thus ensuring that the stock data of the material master are updated.

If, for example, you want to close your periods up to 03/2013, you are not allowed to post values in 01/2013. Therefore, if you still want to make postings in period t, you should execute period closing only for a maximum of t+1 periods.

3. OB52 – Change view “Posting Periods: Specify Time Intervals”: Overview

In this activity, you close the posting periods for FI-AA and open the new periods for FI-AA.

No more FI-AA postings can be made to the previous period. Postings for the future periods are allowed.
