Dear,

Variants allow you to save sets of input values for programs that you often start with the same selections. You can use them for any programs except subroutine pools (type S).

A variant is simply an SAP report where the parameters for running the report have been set by the user and then saved with unique name. This allows future retrieval and execution of the report faster without reentering the parameters. As a convention the variant name should start with with the digits 50 so searchs for LHU variants is easier and quicker. Financial/budget variants should start with your fund center number (which also starts with a 50).

Start Date is - Variant with which the archiving program was executed

The variant determines the parameters with which the archiving program is to be started.

It is a normal variant which can be used in the same way as in other ABAP/4 programs.

If variants have already been created, you can choose one with the F4 help. Otherwise, create a variant as follows:

1. Enter a name for the variant, and choose Maintain. The program selection screen appears with available options and selection criteria. Enter the desired values and choose Variant -> Attributes.

You go to the variant attribute maintenance.

2.Enter a text in the field Meaning which explains what the variant is for, and whether it is a test or

productive variant.

3. Save your entries.

3. Save your entries.

If you need any transaction related help and usage information, you can get the information by clicking Documentation (F6) from the respective transactions initial entry screen. This option available with most of standard transactions in SAP.
