In addition to the “Few important commands in WAD in SAP – Part 1”, in this blog I would like to share few more useful commands those usually use in many reporting scenarios.

Context Web Item:

The Context Web Item is used to show many of the reporting properties such as Sort, Select Filter value, Remove Filter value, Broadcast, Go to (Report Report Interface), Export to Excel, Export to CSV, Global currency, Variable screen etc when we do right click on the reporting area in the report. The properties will work when there are proper settings maintained for the query in the back end.

Report Report Interface Command:


When there is a requirement to have a jump report from the existing query to another query by pressing a button. This is simply called RRI. To achieve this we need to follow the below procedure,

  1. Create an RRI functionality using the transaction RSBBS in the SAP BW backend.
  2. Open WAD and create a button.
  3. Add a Command “Command: RRI” to the button by mentioning the RRI functionality created in the backend. Please find the below screenshots for details on the settings and how to add properties,

Currency Conversion Command:


When there is a requirement to have a currency conversion on pressing a button. To achieve this we need to follow the below procedure,

  1. Create a Currency conversion using the transaction RSCUR in the SAP BW back end.
  2. Open WAD and create a button.
  3. Add a Command “Command: SET_CURRENCY_TRANSLATION” to the button by adding the properties for currency conversion in the back end. Please find the below screenshots for details on the settings and how to add properties,

Ticker Web Item:


Ticker Web Item is used to show the scrolling kind of information on the top of the Report. We can add some custom messages where we can understand few details by reading the scrolling information.
