I presented this at last month’s ASUG Virginia Chapter meeting and BI 2013, and I received a lot of positive comments and questions. I did not develop this Crystal Report, a co-worker of mine did.
Here is what she did:
1) Inside SAP ECC, run the equipment listing, transaction IH08
2) Export the report to Crystal Reports
3) Open report in Crystal Reports 2008 or 2011 (Crystal for Enterprise will not work with this)
4) Design and format the report
5) Upload back to SAP
6) Save as a layout variant
See the recording below:
I hope this gives you more ideas on how to use Crystal inside your ERP
Note you must be on enhancement package 5 to use this functionality.
