Before you get your hands on on to the application, you might encounter some errors mostly message starting with ‘RFC Error…’.

This particular error appears in different scenarios. One being the value help fields not available, conversion errors like ALPHA conversions with fields.              There might be some other reasons as well.

 

  • Some Important Notes:

So if your system is having service packs SP02 or SP03, then there are some SAP notes which addresses all the known issues. Below are the notes.

  • Order of Fields in Application:

We can change the order in which the fields appear on the screen. Create an implementation for the BAdi HCM_B_TSH_FIELDRANKINGS

Populate the parameter ‘FIELD_RANKINGS’ of the implementation as mentioned below. These field names are the corresponding fields of the  screen elements in the application.


ls_rankfield_name = ‘BEMOT’.      ” Accounting Indicator

ls_rankrank = 1.

APPEND ls_rank TO lt_rank.

 

ls_rankfield_name = ‘LSTAR’.      ” Account Type

ls_rankrank = 2.

APPEND ls_rank TO lt_rank.

 

ls_rankfield_name = ‘RAUFNR’.    ” Receiving Order

ls_rankrank = 3.

APPEND ls_rank TO lt_rank.

 

  • Mixed content error when accessing application from external URL/Custom Theme loading:

    When you are accessing the app from the external URL, you will encounter a mixed content error as

    Mixed Content: The page at….was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure XMLHttpRequest endpoint.

Implement the below SAP note to correct this issue.

    Thanks Kishore.

    Right now, we can copy 1 record to multiple dates but not multiple records to a particular date. Is it possible to copy multiple records at the same time to a particular date ? I mean, in the standard Time sheet app, I cant find an exit in UI5 view where we can do this in view. Your thoughts please.
