Before I start, let me tell you that I am not going to use smilies to make you understand that humour was indeed intended. Please use your senses and place a smiley [ 😉 ] wherever you understood or when it becomes unbearable otherwise.

I noticed that unlike ABAP Forum, where competition is killing people ( or at least crashing systems..and so I guess marketing should be discouraged over there ), Weblogs are in desperate need for some innovative marketing. Ponits for comments or discouraging weblogs like this one ;-)…you decide the marketing stretegy. 

Welcome Mr. gv_current_viewer and congratulations for being the 1000th victim… sorry I mean 1000th intellectual viewer of this weblog. [ In fact there were a lot many others who could not manage to get counted. ]

You should have already noticed that this weblog is a lot different from others in a sense that it provides a lot more flexibility and features. e.g did you see the title? I thought why I should bother myself so much about the title, that’s why I made it a field-symbol. Now you can use your own imaginations and assign the title that you want.
[ Revolutionary concept ..right? Thanks !! ]

What else? This weblog also greets you with your own, most lovable name in the world.
[ Curse SDN if it doesn’t ….goodness they promised me to populate the gv_current_viewer variable with the current user name, at run time.]

I know, you must have been already impressed with all these features but did you notice the hidden gv_counter that tracks only the intellectual viewers. So are you wondering whether you belong to that class? Guess what?…I know you won’t believe it ..But you were counted …
congratulations again!!
[ Don’t tell this to anyone. I am writing this line as an update to my weblog….I saw my own weblog so many times…it didn’t count me once…some bug, it seems..well it’s a beta version….]

You know, answering questions on ABAP forum is a lot easier. [ I mean you don’t need to lie too much to sell your wrong answers. But it seems to be tough here.]

Moving further, let me tell you something about the subject of my weblog. Oh come-on ..not everything in this weblog can be left on your imaginations…[find a better use of yours somewhere else]

Well, it’s about an ABAP program that converts ABAP Report Code ( SAP Ver 4.7 ) into HTML and downloads to your PC. The HTML document downloaded using this utility is readable and also navigation is possible for variables and form-routines.

Hay ..Wait a minute….don’t change the channel…..

Guys I am working on my new generation Netweaver skills as well but then it will take time… And listen to me; I also have a brilliant futuristic idea. Basically it’s an extension of weather magnets (using BSPs, PHPs,..and all that Ps & Qs ) invented by my fellow webloggers.

Well, this is to implement a disaster control mechanism for SAP systems. It will ensure that at the time of any natural or man-made disaster, in a particular geographical area, all affected SAP systems will receive the Red Alert through the weather magnet. Further, just after receiving any such alerts, within minutes, the SAP system will automatically generate a delta backup and will transmit the backup files to the other end of the world…of course over a secure network..
Immediately after the backup, it will trigger the system shut-down. So you can just concentrate on saving the life of your girlfriend(s) rather than SAP systems.
[ I have some idea about your preferences….]
I am sure, you will agree to me that once implemented this system will be very useful in the moment of crisis.

So you see, if the quality of my this weblog is slightly(?) on the lower side it’s just because I am working on something more important.
[ Ok Boss …That was all crap…actually it’s already around a month now since I received my weblog authorizations and I’ve not posted a single weblog as yet.]

You know what could be the consequences, if I won’t post a weblog now..

SDN, might rightly right-off my rights to write a weblog.. right away..

[ Wow…Did you notice it? I am trying to be a SAP Technical Consultant for the last 7 years.. would have been president somewhere ..guess where? ]

Please don’t copy and use the ABAP code given below…. am not saying its copyrighted..just that it won’t work. Rather use the text version – Scroll right in the frame below and use the text file link.
[Let me know if that works.]

Also please close that lovable yahoo geocities pop-up.
[ or else read that also in case you are in a desperate need to read something better.]
Actually, my personal site is on geocities( cost-cutting) and I am their Brand-Ambassador (in some way ).
[You know, we are good at cost cutting and also on presenting the disadvantages as benefits.]
Ok..I am in no mood to start the outsourcing (offshoring) debate.

Just in case someone objects, this code is already published on SDN under Codes section but then I have to write my first weblog somehow. I am sorry I’ve nothing else at the moment.
[ However, I swear to *** that I will donate all my SDN points earned due to this weblog for initiatives towards World Peace and… SAP implementations, in case too much peace is boring ]
Does that help?

BTW, I’ve removed the code IFRAME, as it was creating problems…and if you like you can always search it in Codes section…anyway forget the code…read the weblog ;-)..and also check my other weblog to see the example of downloaded code in HTML. This weblog is for marketing purpose only, so we’ll only talk about weblogs, no codes /articles / problems but 100% pure weblog.

I can’t believe, you came this far. So here is a surprise gift for the 1000th intellectual weblog viewer:
A fridge-fresh SAP joke, for your eyes ( and senses ) only:
I swear to ***, it’s based on a real life story.

A SAP Project Manager, from one of my previous organizations [it goes without saying and you know why, don’t you?], was looking for a technical consultant having some experience with SAP version 11. And the advertisement was published, as a requirement for SAP Version-11, in the leading newspapers of the country.

BTW, the Request for Proposal, forwarded by the customer, was for ….SAP XI
Probably, they think that SAP TechEd is for technical consultants. Renaming it to SAP ManEd-05 might help. Or if you like to be brief ..MAD’05 is not a bad idea.

….Boy you have nothing else to do..Now get on to your work !!
