Is it Time For a Modern SAP Resume?

Like many, I try to keep my Resume as fresh as possible.  Even if you’re not actively job-hunting, updating your resume regularly will ensure that you’re capturing the more salient activities you’re performing and perhaps replacing those that are less important.  But in the age of the cloud where LinkedIn reigns supreme, is it time to re-think the classic interpretation of the professional Resume?

Ask Me Anything: SAP Value Discounts vs Price Discounts

This question comes courtesy of Val:

I’m configuring  a series of % discounts in SD. Each needs to apply a % to the price, not to the value (SAP default), so the price per unit decreases with each discount.  The result is a slightly different final total value from the standard method.  I can’t find a way in standard config, all I can do is a standard value: can you suggest anything?  Do I need a custom requirement?

SAP Quick Tip: Find IMG Transaction Codes

I’m often impressed by how some consultants can rattle off transaction codes for IMG configuration activities. Want to create a new SD Item Category? Sure, just go to VoV7… I usually choose to navigate using the IMG’s navigation tree (SPRo) but every so often it is handy to be able to directly access an IMG T-code. Here’s a little trick I discovered for finding some of those shortcuts.

Ask Me Anything: SAP Condition Update, Max # of Orders

This question comes courtesy of Krishna. He writes (edited for clarity):

My requirement is to give a discount for the first 50 sales orders. I tried this using the condition update tool. It is limited to only 3 sales orders. I want to make it for 50 sales orders, but I am not getting anywhere. Please help me.

I’m not sure there’s much good news ahead on this one, but let’s take a closer look at the ‘Maximum number of orders’ in the Condition Update function.

SAP: My Own SAP ECC 6.0 IDES Server (Appendix)
