2966125 - Custom label doesn't show date on profile


Changed the value of the key TIMEANDLABOR_ESS_AS_OF_DATE but the date value is not displaying after the change instead \{0\} shows up.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

When the label is explicitly(manually) changed system code won't understand the place holders, as it will take the entire custom value as string.

  • If the key has place holders like \{0\} \{1\} \{2\} etc. in the code then system won't understand these values for custom label change.
  • Code picks up the actual properties file value (remains unchanged) and the custom value is applied on top of it only for your instance.
  • The code property file doesn't change.
  • The values from database from the label change cannot be picked up explicitly.

In custom field label change we cannot show any other data, just set of string/text value.
