    I will explain some of the differences between Report and Script ok.

    Reports:

    1.It is not possible to insert logos in the report(Classical REP)

    2.If u give report as a printout it is not clear.

    3.It is not possible to align the values.

    4.we cannot set the user defined layout format in reports.

    5.These are client independent.

    6.Labels are not present.

    Scripts:

    1.It is possible to insert logos in the report.

    2.If u give script as a printout it is clear.

    3.It is possible to align the values.

    4.we can set the user defined layout format in scripts.

    5.These are client dependent.

    Hi,

    An ABAP report program, you can display the resulting

    output list - also known as a report - on the screen or

    send it to a printer. You can also save the output list and

    display it later.

    SAPscript is the word processing tool used within SAP/R3 to

    manipulate and display text. It is used throughout the

    system for on-line displays and print out processing. When

    data is printed using SAPscript, the output is commonly

    referred to as layouts or forms

    with regards,

    hi

    Script is a form which has a layout set as per the company standards and can be used for external use too. Generally reports are designed for internal use for in house users

    Scripts are client dependent. / Reports are client Independent.

    SAP scripts is a word processing tool of SAP which has the following components: Standard text. It is like a standard normal documents. Layout sets. - Layout set consists of the following components: Windows and pages, Paragraph formats, Character formats. Creating forms in the R/3 system. Every layout set consists of Header, paragraph, and character string. ABAP/4 program.

    You create executable programs directly using the tool called ABAP Editor. Executable programs can contain all processing blocks supported in ABAP, with the exception of function modules, and as many local classes as required. Executable programs are only started with the SUBMIT statement. Although NetWeaver AS ABAP offers several ways to call executable programs by entering their name on the screen, the system still executes the SUBMIT statement in the background.

    It is not necessary to control executable programs directly using self-defined screens since the relevant processors of the runtime environment call the processing blocks and screens (selection screens and lists) automatically and in a predefined sequence. The process flow allows the user to enter selection parameters on a selection screen. The data is then selected from the database and processed. Finally, an output list is displayed. At no stage does the programmer have to define his or her own screens. User actions on screens can then trigger further processing blocks.

    The runtime environment also allows you to work with a logical database, that is, with a special ABAP program for reading data from database tables. The flow of an executable program is oriented towards reporting (whose main tasks are to read data from the database, process it, and display the results). This is why executable programs are often referred to as reports, and why running an executable program is often called reporting (see Report Programming). Analogously, the source code of an executable program starts with the REPORTstatement.
