    Hi KP

    You can use report painter for simple reports. There are diff ways of using this tool

    If you are starting a new report altogether from scratch

    1) First ensure the characteristics and key figures u need are available in the library from the reports are to be designed

    2) Once you modify the library with the required characteristics and key figures go to either creation of report or copy the existing report. Take a reference report

    3) Once u copy the structure of the existing report define your columns

    4) Define your columns say - CC expenses in co currency etc.

    5) Define your vaiables in the report - here u can take a drop down and select let's say - Plan values or actual values

    6) After defining the parameters the important thing is general data selection

    Here u will select Ex, Controlling Area, Company code, Period etc

    7) Save and execute report

    The above are macro level steps - with the above inputs u can explore possibilities available and create ur own report

    You can also create your own library copying the existing one and proceed with report creation

    Remember after creating the report u need to assign the report to a report group (either existing one) or u can create ur own report group and assign your reports to the group

    Hope the above helps, Please assign points as a way to say thanks

      Hi KP

      Ex. Take the standard CC variance report and copy this report and just practice by changing

      1) Characteristics

      2) key figures change to values in object currency - if u hv two diff currencies

      3) Change general data selection parameters - remove expand radio button if it is there or select it if it is not there

      4) Errors - when u create report first time - general error could be general data selection missing.

      5) At every place u hv check points and check ur report creation process through out. Click on check and confirm buttons

      6) At the top u hv check option thru which u can check ur report for list of errors

      You try this out for preparation for the interview

      For interview the steps i defined in earlier message should do

      Remember some libraries - like CCSS is for cost centers, 1SIP is the report group for cost center variances.

      Hope the above helps - pls assign points as a way to say thanks
