New school on teachable.com


My SAP BCP and HANA school is now on teachable.com

This school contains two great courses. One for SAP BPC Fundamentals for application design, and the other a SAP BPC Price Planning Application. 

What makes teachable so great is that you can subscribe to the course on a monthly basis or pay an annual subscription rate at a reduced cost.

The school can be accessed here.

Characteristic Relationships as AMDP


Characteristic Relationships as AMDP

In the course of the last few days I have been working on a BW system 740 SP10 and trying to get a Characteristic Relationship with an ABAP Managed Database Procedure to work. I have followed all the documentation published by SAP and countless blogs, but I continued to get errors.

Whenever I execute a planning sequence, I get a short dump:


There is no information in this short dump. Looking at the HANA logs, and a little more information is obtained:

Procedure/Function 'SAPXXX'.'ZCL_DEMO=>DERIVE' not found in catalog!

Solution

The solution to this problem is hidden away in the ABAP documentation and is not intuitive at all. I have added the full process to create a CR with AMDP to my teachable course, that you can access here:
