    Sajita,

    The reporting sub-module (Component) in SEM is called CPM (Corporate Performance Monitor) as per it name stands, its used to major the performance in many different ways, which is not possible in standard BW way.. like Balance ScoreCard (BSC), Value Driven trees and specially the Management Cockpit.. you can find very good info in the SAP Service docs..

    Good luck

    I am trying to use field 'FKDAT' Actual Billing/Settlement Date, which is stored in table JHTFK in R/3 system as my key field in my query. Here I am trying to use Business content cube. How do I know if this field is there or not? I don't see the same field name in the incube, do I have anyother ways to check it?

    Lets' say the cube is : 0MEMAMC05

    thanks in advance.

    Bye

      Hi Sajita,

      I don't have your industry specific R/3 (media), so I can't see anything on my system...

      colud you tell me:

      - the technical name of the update rules linked to your cube

      - the time reference of your cube and how they are mapped in your update rules

      Let me know...

      Bye,

      Roberto

    Hello Sajita,

    a SEM system always includes a BW system and it is this BW system that is used for reporting.
