    Hi

    Report painter is a user-friendly tool through which reports can be defined to meet specific business requirements that are not takes care of by standard reports. Report Painter Utility has been categorized under FI-SL as most often it is used to create Special Purpose Reports only.

    Given below are the main components of a Report Painter Report,

    1) Library

    A library is a Collection of Characteristic, Key Figures and predefined columns for a reporting table. A Report Painter Report is created inside a Library. Thus, it can only use the Characteristic, Key Figures and predefined columns selected for that library. SAP comes with a lot of preconfigured Libraries. Depending on the reporting need, one may choose to use any one of these or instead go in for defining one’s own Library.

    2) Report Layout

    Report Layout determines the layout features of the report and the format of the report data constituted in the report output. SAP comes with the Standard Layout SAP, but you can define your own Layout.

    3) Report

    A Report constitutes of Rows (Characteristics), Columns (Characteristics, Key Figures, or Formula) and General Data Selection (Input Selection Parameters). A Report is built inside a Library, so it can use the characteristics and key figures that are there in the library.

    4) Report Group

    A report group contains one or more reports from the same library. When reports contain the same characteristics and share the same data, then they should be attached to the same Report Group so as to improve the processing time.

    5) Set / Variable

    A set is a group of specific values or ranges of values that reside in a database table. The transaction code for Create / Change / Display a set is GS01/ GS02 / GS03.

    A name that is given to the data that can be changed during the runtime of a program. The transaction code for Create / Change / Display a variable is GS11/ GS12 / GS13.

    One should always bear in kind that elements of a report are inter-related, so while creating them one need to follow a sequential procedure
