    Mukta, all the questions look to be basic level questions in DP. They can be easily addressed in a training session, and, and also the wiki page in the forum on the top of this page. I am sure answering all the questions below, will lead you to further questions and I dont think training questions are addressed to your satisfaction in this forum. If you can ask your organization to have a short DP (2 day) training session from SAP endorsed training vendors, it will do a world of good to your DP team. The moderator of this forum can correct me if this is wrong.

      We do respect your feelings and that was the reason why we mentioned " No Hard feelings Buddy". This is because Mukta is a very good friend of mine and she is struggling hard and i am a beginner too. We do have the book which you have prescribed and also we did go through the Building Block for DP. It is only after that she came across all these doubts. She was just asking for some help from Guru's like you. Thats fine if you guys don't want to answer directly. I knew this would happen because of the long list of questions in one single post. That is the reason why i did post the same questions in bits. Sorry buddy even i couldn't stop myself from replying. I still stick to the statement, "No Hard Feelings Buddy".
