3135689 - WBS element is not captured properly in Timesheet report


In any of the custom CDS views and queries:

  1. WBSElementInternalID is displayed in the NUMC (8) format. However, the customer expects it to be displayed in the WBS Element (CHAR24) format.
  2. WBSElementInternalID is displayed in an unconverted format in a custom analytical query.
  3. Any field previously displaying WBS element name/description for the timesheet WBSElementInternalID, now only displays WBS internal ID

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




As a part of CDS view guidelines, conversion exits are not recommended for CDS view field names. Conversion exit ABPSP for the field WBSElementInternalID is restricted and only the internal ID is displayed.


In custom CDS views based on I_Timesheetrecord CDS view and WBSElementInternalID field, please use the association to CDS view I_WBSElementBasicData to fetch the WBSElementExternalID.
