When taking notes in my texteditor, I was wondering, if the date format I use ist the correct on.
Funnily, the fastest way to find out was searching #XKCD for "date", the 2nd hit is what I was looking for:
(I had rememberd reading it years ago, but wouldn't remember the content.)
So: Correct date format is :
which is what I was (and will keep) using.
Also I got to read a littel bit about #ISO8601.
SAP (SAP Community, answering Questions)
After re-starting asking questions in #SAPCommunity yesterday, today I also started again answering them, e.g. here:
-> Use #RemoteSyntaxCheck to identify what coding will no longer run on a target system, where SAP-DDIC has been removed
SAP S/4HANA Upgrade
SAP-Components that (seem to) have been simplified (=> deleted) with #S4HANA 1809:
IS-M: SAP Media (confirmed via #SimplificationList)
IS-H: SAP Healthcare (haven’t seen a clue on this one)
2 more* data-elements affected:
(*of course, there are many more, but those mentioned caused me some problems! ;-) )
Menschen, die entwickeln haben sich bisher noch nicht gemeldet 😞
Frag mich gern nach Details!
Colleague just tells me he websearched for some error message (UKM_PI008) he got and found something in #SAPCommunity, where a answered a question in this regard.
I'm "Mr. Internet" now (his words!) ;-)
That's the link in case you're interested:
Not only is it still terribly frustrating to investigate the energy sources used by websites/servers, but also the information available about #GreenWebhosting on the internet is either old or extremely fragmentary.
Just look at the Wikipedia article which cites an article from 2008 (!!!) that predicted data centers' environmental footprint to eventually outpace that of aviation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_hosting

SAP (Upgrade SPDD)
It's #Upgrade-Time again.
I have noticed that in SPDD the "adjust" option never makes any useful proposals in my cases -> it always proposes to revert to the original ("Proposal corresponds to current version").
My cases are most often that the enhancement-category was changed (from "not enhanceable") or a searchhelp was added....
The #SAP Switch-Framework is nice and in some cases it can be really helpful to be able to create a (temporary) switch in SFW1, assigning a package to it, and thus having it switched off.
("let's pretend, the package causing problems (e.g. syntax errors) wouldn't be there!?").
But one hast to be really careful that there are no table-appends or tables in that package, as that would result in data loss, right?
(Haven't tried it out, the thought just occurred to me…)
And sometimes there's unexpected stuff like "PARDIST_SHD , DISTRIBUTION ERRORS" , where no one is really sure what's wrong now...
It was something CDS-Views that could apparently not be activated; but they were active already; we activated them again, tried one more time, and it worked!
