Hi All,

We all use “Class” to categories / organise / group large number of objects such as equipment, functional Location, Material, documents etc by means of their respective specification i.e. characteristics. However I felt that many people face difficulty in getting the proper reports out of this segregated data of class and characteristics for the objects.

In this blog I will try to explain how to get the equipment report with Characteristic values through CL30N. Similarly, the same method can be used to get the report of other objects.

 

Goto CL30N

 

Enter the class and class type (002 for equipment class) and press enter

 

 

Now the list of Characteristics will be displayed, if you wish to find objects with particular characteristic values, you can enter the value or else keep them blank and click on “Find in initial class”¬†

 

List of objects will be displayed in the lower table, to make the characteristic values to be visible click on Change layout

 

 

Select the required chars which you wish to be displayed and add them to displayed columns (left side) and click on continue

 

 

now you will see the report of objects with characteristic values.

 

Please note that by default, the number of hits displayed shall be restricted to 100, if you wish to change/remove, goto extras – user settings – click on tab “Find Object” – and change / remove maximum hits as per your requirements.

 

Hope someone finds it useful. Please leave comments / suggestions..

 

Thanks,

Somnath Nagshetty

    hello

    In Transaction IE05 as well as IL05 you are able to select via classes as well as characteristics and display master data as well a characteristics

    When the ALV is presented go to settings -> show classification -> then the following result is displayed.

     

    So this is, from my perspectiove, much better as you can also display master data + classification data

    tthanks

      Hi Stephan,

      You are right. But through CL30N, the objects can be selected with specific characteristic values. For example, if there are 10000 equipment and each equipment has been classified with class ‘RA_Source’ which accepts a value from 100 to 1000. Now, if I want to fetch only those objects/equipment which are having characteristic value 200 or 300, then CL30N is really useful. But in IE05 or IH08, this cannot be done, it just list all the objects/equipment with specific class.

      Thanks,

      Rupesh.

    Hi,

     

    Well guys, use of CL30N, able to get report with specific characteristics and there will not be any restriction on no. of column display whereas thru IE05 it will show possible characteristics and it has restriction on no. of column display as a standard.

    CL30N useful in this regard

     

    Thanks
