    Hi,

    Purpose

    You use the Report Painter to create reports from data in the Special Purpose Ledger (FI-SL) application component and other R/3 application components to meet your specific reporting requirements.

    Many reporting requirements can be met using the standard reports provided by various R/3 application components. However, if your reporting requirements are not fulfilled by SAP’s standard reports, you can use the Report Painter to quickly and easily define your own reports.

    The Special Purpose Ledger (FI-SL) application component does not provide any standard Report Painter reports because you must first install your FI-SL system setup (database tables and so on) to meet your specific business requirements.

    Advantages of the Report Painter include:

    Easy and flexible report definition

    Report definition without using sets

    Direct layout control

    Creating a report painter .

    Procedure

    From the relevant application, choose Tools ® Report Painter ® Report ® Create.

    The Report Painter: Create Report screen appears.

    You can also create Report Painter reports from any Report Writer screen. To do so, choose Report Writer ® Report Painter ® Create report.

    Enter the name of the library the report is to use, and a name and description for the report. The report name can be a maximum of eight characters long.

    If you want to create your report using an existing Report Painter report as a basis, enter the name of the report that you want to copy under Copy from. Both reports must use the same library.

    Choose Create.

    The next screen displays an empty report containing four rows and four columns (this is the basic structure for a report). You define your report on this screen.

    Enter or change the description for the report by double-clicking the report description field.

    A dialog box appears in which you can enter a short, medium, and long text for the report description.

    Define the rows of your report (see Defining Rows).

    Rows contain a combination of characteristic values or formulas. Note the lead column at the first position of the rows. The Report Painter uses the lead column to access the rows. You can replace the description Lead column with a different term.

    Define the columns of your report (see Defining Columns).

    Columns contain a combination of a basic key figure and optional restricting characteristic values. You can also use predefined key figures to present key figures and characteristics that make business sense. For example, a number of predefined key figures are delivered for the libraries in Overhead Cost Controlling that can be copied directly into the reports, where they can be modified as required.

    Define general data selection criteria (see General Data Selection)

    The general data selection criteria restrict data selection for the report.

    Choose Save and then Execute to create the report.
