ABAP for Bank Analyzer

Hey experts!

I have been looking for resources (books, forums, courses, etc.) about development for Bank Analyzer but I have not found anything. Although the syntax is the same, the technical part to develop for bank analyzer is different from another common program in SAP and it has been confusing for me. Even on sap press, I could not find anything.

Can anyone recommend any book or any other resources?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Not sure what you're referring to as "common program in SAP" but how exactly is BA different, as far as ABAP is concerned? What is the specific challenge?

Google and SAP Help / Support Portal would be a best bet to search for any resources.



When I talk about to "common program in SAP" I mean a report, class, etc or other techniques we use to personalize or enhance any module in SAP ERP. The structure or the process to carry out a customization in BA is quite different.

Before I posted this question, I check SAP help, google, sap press, forums, even I have the material for BA, but in the material I don't have anything about ABAP for BA or something related.

The specific challenge is how to use the module editor, and I saw when I am trying to make a program, In somehow I have to join the steps. I don't know how to be more clear :(

Many thanks.

Having encountered a few versions of Bank Analyzer, I can say BA has its own philosophy (widely based on an "ersatz" of BI characteristics and true ones; a little bit modified ABAP "Package Check"), but it's not so much different than when you have to work with a new solution (ERP to CRM or to SCM, and vice versa, etc.).

I think that Module Editor is one of the least complex concepts in BA : it's just a sequence of steps to transform input values to output values. The complexity is more "functional/technical" than ABAP, as you have to learn which characteristics you need to use/initialize. As often, you need to learn the functional part (cf SAP trainings) for being efficient in ABAP.

But maybe you have a more precise question about Module Editor...

Don't know where you are from, but, there is a course (see the content of it, especially - "Use the Module Editor") that is being held in different countries. You can contact SAP training in your country and ask for the course in case they don't offer it, reach out for course material or check some online options (like via a Skype or any other similar kind of service or if there is a premade online video version of the course).

Now, I am not a fan of courses, I like learning for myself (in all fairness, it also includes, amongst other things, learning from a premade videos), but if what you say it's true, I guess you have no choice (or do you? :-) )?

Hey Iftah,

I like teaching myself too, but in this case, I assume that nobody understands my question because I can not explain it very well. Basically, my doubt it is because in the editor module exists as a series of steps and it is there where I would not know very well how to relate these steps (it is not about ABAP programming) if not for example which step is 1st which one would be the second one.

Anyway, I really appreciate your time and your answer.
