HANA Report Setting Tool

On MSSQL, the connection data is replaced dynamically when printing and there is no need to save the report with the actual connection data.

On SAP HANA, the connection data is not replaced dynamically and it is necessary to save the selected reports with the actual connection to the right database and schema. With the HANA Report Setting Tool it is possible to modify the connection data for multiple reports.

1. Configuration

1.1. Run the Produmex.Sbo.Logex.Tools.HanaReportSettingTool.exe.

The file can be found in the Produmex Tools folder, for example: C:\Program Files\Produmex\Produmex Tools.

Note: The file is only installed during a HANA installation.

When the tool opens, the following fields are prefilled based on the configuration file of the tool (Produmex.Sbo.Logex.Tools.HanaReportSettingTool.exe.config):

  • Database section
  • DB Server: the name of the database server
  • Company DB: the name of the database used by SAP Business One

1.2. Configure the 32-bit section

  • 32-bit OBCD Driver: When you open the tool, it automatically displays your 32-bit OBCD Driver set as default.
  • Folder of 32-bit RPT files: This is the source folder of the reports that you want to modify and this is where the modified reports are saved.
    • The default setting for the source folder is C:\Produmex or C:\Produmex\Reports and if the default folder contains RPT files, they are displayed in the Report Files grid.
    • If the source folder does not contain any RPT file, the grid is empty.
    • If you want to change the setting, browse another folder.

1.3. Configure the 64-bit section

  • 64-bit ODBC Driver: When you open the tool, it automatically displays your 64-bit OBCD Driver set as default.
  • Folder of 64 bit RPT files: This is the folder where the generated 64-bit reports are saved.
    • By default, no folder is set. Create your new folder for the 64-bit reports, for example C:\Produmex\Reports\Reports64bit, and browse it for the Folder of 64 bit RPT files field.

Note: Make sure that you have two different folders for the 32-bit and for the 64-bit RPT files.

2. Saving reports

2.1. Saving reports with 32-bit

1. Copy the necessary reports from your installation folder (for example: C:\Install\Produmex_WMS_19_1.x64\Reports\HANA) into your 32-bit RPT file source folder.

Now all the reports from your source folder are listed in the grid.

2. Select the necessary report files in the grid.
You can select all of them by clicking the Select All button or select the necessary ones one by one.

3. Click Update Selected Reports to the New Connection Settings.

4. The tool starts converting the reports into 32-bit versions. In the log window the process is displayed step by step:

The tool creates a new folder named OLD within your 32-bit RPT file source folder and saves a copy of the selected report files into the OLD folder.
It overwrites the report files by converting them into 32-bit versions. Once the process is finished, you can find the 32-bit versions in your source folder.

5. The tool displays the successful actions per report in the Last Action column of the grid.
