HI all,

What is the process to Modify Web-based table and navigation block interfaces


Hi Raman ,

Well You probably know how BW works in a Web environment: A Web template provides placeholders for tables and charts that are populated with data at the time the page is requested. The template is a simple page to create, while the page that is actually sent back by BW contains JavaScript and HTML surrounding the real table, which by necessity is complex. It is good that you do not have to create this output yourself. It is the responsibility of the SAP Web Application Server or the IGS (Internet Graphics Server).

But if someone designed the template one way, someone else will want the output to look or behave differently. Who are you going to call? If you said an ABAPer, you would be wrong! This time, you need an ABAP OO (object-oriented) programmer. ABAP OO uses object-oriented techniques similar to those of other modern languages such as Java and Visual BASIC. Working with the ABAP OO programmer, you can change the output generated for the table or the navigation block (the central place where you click on the report to drill down on a specific characteristic). You can add your own icon, for example, to run a customer-specific process with the data in a cell, or just have a mouse button do something different for your Web page. If you donu2019t have an ABAP OO programmer handy, a regular ABAPer provided with a white paper showing an example of what you want to do will serve just fine.
