  • This is gotta be a JOKE!!! The screenshots are NOT readable, I tried zooming in, starring at them from a very short distance, just NOT readable!!! Also the procedure itself is wrong (at least the link shown is wrong), I implemented it a different way, what a SCAM!!!

  • Hi Srinivasan!

    I am the space editor from the SAP Portal space. Could you please insert the images again, so that they are readable?

    Regards and thanks
