        yes I can see the pictures now, even in Google, no need to download Mozilla.

        I personally create always a PDF from a blog or document after publishing. this way I can verify if everything is there and I have a copy for myself, just in case of an unlikely event that pictures get lost

    Hello Krishnendu,

    At first, i would like to thank you for sharing this. I suggest it would be more useful if you would have shared a live example apart from configurations.

    I also have one more query :- In the “Create Characteristic” Screen displayed in above screen shots, i am not able to find the “Behavior during RFC Connection Problems” Tab under “Value Help and Check in Remote System” after “RFC Destination” field in the “Additional Data for Process Instructions and Messages” in my system.

    May i know whether this is due to SAP version? or do i need to make any settings to see the same screen displayed by you.

    Thanks in advance. 🙂
