    Aging report shows how old are the receivables, How long an invoice is remaining uncollected. Usually, every invoice that go the customers have a due date for payment, depending upon the terms of payment. It may be 30 days from the inovice or so. Aging takes stock of customer receivables that have remained unpaid by customers beyond their due date.

    BW is OLAP. The data we need to analyze the aging is predominantly old data, i.e, it is not like sales data, where one needs to know as and when it happens. Receivables are already past data, like atleast the number of days prescribed by the terms of payment have elapsed. Hence BW is preferred.

    An Aging report shows open items for customer or vendors clasified by time of expiration, for example one report can show in one column the open items that haven't expired yet , in other column shows the open items that have expiraton days between 0 and 30 days, in other column shows open items beween 31 ans 60 , other between 61 and 90 and the last one the open items with expiration older to 91 days.

    I've seem aging reports developed in abap and not in BW.
