Profit Center Reports

Hi ,

I am new in SAP but i am trying to make a report which has profit center and gl account as its dimensions . I am little confused as to how to structure the report.

My question is should i keep the profit center and then the gl account in the drill down of the reports or the other way round as i am not sure how the users would like to see it , i mean within a profit center lot many gl accounts or the other way round...

Kindly suggest.

Regards,

Vikram

    Hi,

    I think you should let the users decide!

    Swapping, removing and son on.... are basics functions in BW reporting. Users should be able to do that on their own.

    I suggest to first display the profit centre and then the account. This may not give you the P&L as they want to see it; for the account you should make use of the hierarchies created in SAP R/3 since they will reflect the P&L statement as they want to see it.

    Hope this helps,

    Olivier.

    If you wish to display profit centre when the users execute the reports, then keep it in the row or column.

    Keep Gl account in the free characteristics for drill down and filter , etc.

    Hi,

    Report needs customer reqirement for designing.

    but you can keep these tips.

    1. If there is number of cells in output, you can reduce it.

    2. Use free char for the detail data , in your case GL account.

    3. Use filter for any Globla filter, like contolling area, comp code, etc.

    4. use variables for structuring the report.

    Regards,

    Vishwa.
