Label Printing in SAP EHS
By Rahul Sharma and Nitesh Kumar Pandey, Infosys Technologies
are printed at various stages of the business process. They include Shipment
Labels, Warehouse Labels and Sample Labels etc. Labels are used as the effective
way of communicating product, manufacturing and safety data related to products
as well as for internal and external identification purposes e.g. if we buy any
cosmetic product, they have labels on their surface containing the information
about date of manufacturing, date of expiring, cautions, ingredients etc.. The
data is fetched from SAP and sent to some external system for printing.
To Print EHS label, user first calls the
specific scenario (for which EHS label needs to be printed, like made-to-stock
etc.). User provides necessary inputs to the scenario (like order, material etc)
and calls different labels of same scenario.
User needs to select one of the labels,
choose the printer and give the print command. This label information directly
goes to the external system (used to print EHS label).
Configuration of this scenario can be done
by using path SPRO => SAP Reference IMG => Environment, Health &
Safety=>Product Safety=>Global Label Management=>Specify Labeling
Label is linked to generation variant*,
generation variant is linked with the template*, template has different report
symbols*, report symbols are linked to report group* which is linked with a FM
and data fetching logic of these report symbols are written in function module.
Labels are assigned to a generation variant,
which is created using transaction CG2B.
Generation variant has different display
options (like date format, decimal display etc.).
For creating Generation variant we need a
Template, which is created using transaction CG42.
In Template various report symbols are
specified, which can be seen by pressing F7 (in user menu Goto->Document).
