CATS: Changing Target Hours

Written by

In Cross-Application Timesheets, enhancement CATP0001 lets you set your own target hours for the Time Sheet. However this completely stops the default reading of target hours; if the enhancement returns even one line of target hours, none of the default reading will take place. So, how can you change the Target Hours, starting with the default hours as a base?


We assume you know how to create enhancement CATP0001; if not, that’s the topic of another discussion.

The code supplement for the enhancement is created in include ZXCATPU01. You could then call the target hours using the function module ‘CATS_GET_TARGET_HOURS’; however, this function module itself calls the enhancement CATP0001 – leading to recursion. It’s thus necessary to stop that recursion, to allow the function module to get the target hours without being impacted by our enhancement.

This is done by using a flag in memory. If recursion_flag is set to true, the enhancement’s logic will not be executed.You may have further conditions before triggering the enhancement’s logic; these should be done next.

Finally, we need to use CATS_GET_TARGET_HOURS to get the original target hours; but first, we set the recursion_flag to true.

Example code 2

The result of this will be that your SAP_TARGET_HOURS table will now contain the original default target hours; you can now edit these according to your own logic!

    Türöffner in der Not Sehr guter Service. Weiter so. Hat alles so preislich gestimmt wie am Telefon abgemacht. Ein anderer warb mit 9 Euro für Türöffnung. Es war offensichtlich daß das ein Lockvogelpreis ist. Im Impressum stand auch Herford, das ist doch sehr weit. Dann stießen wir auf diesen Anbieter. Herr Klein schien uns seriös und nett also bestellten wir diesen. Wir wurden nicht enttäuscht. Eine absolute Empfhelung sind Sie.

    Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
    I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on. Any recommendations?

    Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
