Configure for Report writer

Hi
I have a ZZZZ transparent table with data, that is not a pool or cluster table, and would want to be able to use Report Writer to search from this table and create RW reports.
1. Is this possible?
2. What are the set up tables needed to configure for RW? I could think of only T804A and T804B.
Does anyone have a soft copy of the steps in doing this? I am going through the SAP Help and it seems that there are steps missing, and I am unable to complete the process of creating a custom Library for this table.
Thank you
Priya

COPA is a mini data warehouse and each company have to define the datasource structure, called profit segment, based on their own profit analysis requirement before they create any PA reports. Since the profit segment could be different from company to company, no univeral PA report can be used for all companies, that is also why SAP normally do not provide any standard reports in KE30.
So, you have to first define the characteristics, value fields, and profit segment with the characteristics and value fields (KEA0). Then create your own PA reports with the segment you define forms (KE34, KE31).
Forms are the structures required as the basis for the definition of reports

  • Profit center security for Report Writer reports

    We need to limit users access to profit center report writer reports.  We attempted to add values to security object K_PCA but this did not work.   I have heard there is a way to turn on objects for report writer checks but so far have been unable to figure out how this is done.

    Which release are you on and how have you defined the authorizations?
    If the st01 trace always returns 0 then chech the "reason code" (this is available since about 6 months).
    Manually you can check it in tcode auth_switch_objects if globally disabled for the client.
    Conversions to the new concept sometimes did this when they didn't want to use it.
    Retro-fitting is difficult because your hierarchies might be maintained in PROD but your roles in DEV.
    Tough call...

  • New set for Report Writer

    Hello,
    I am new to the Report Writer.  My understanding is that Report Writer makes use of pre-defined sets of financial objects.  My user wants to create new report group in Report Writer and add some new data which are currently in Z-table. Is this possible? Do we create a new set based on Z-table and then incorporate it in the new report?
    Please advise,
    Thanks
    Galina

  • Constant Checking in Row Formula for Report Writer

    Dear All,
    Please advice what is the format to check a constant (string) in the row formula for Report Writer.
    Let's say if I want to check the cost center group -->
    If '&1KOSET' = 'ABC' then .... else......
    So, what is the format for ABC? Because if i put 'ABC' it will be treated as cell. But if i do not put the ' ', then i get system error.
    Thanks a million for your advice.
    Best Regards,
    CW

    Hi John Lee,
    The logic that you would want , can be implemented through a column set. That is, as per your logic written in the set, your column values differ.
    First in your set, keep your account number in the first set line. ie. 5000000.
    Then you enter the following formula in the second line of a set defined for a report column:
    IF u2018001u2019 > 5000000 THEN u2018001u2019 ELSE 0
    If the value in the first column (set line 001) is greater than 5000000, then this value displays in the second column; if the value in the first column is less than 1000, the value 0 displays in the second column.
    Revert if you need any additional help.

  • Changing JDBC Datasource Configuration for Report with Sub reports at once

    The Env  details are as follows
    CR Developer
    Version 14.0.2.364 RTM
    We are using JDBC Connection Datasource for our CR2011 report which contains 30+ sub reports. Each of the sub report uses a JDBC Datasource to connect to Postgres database and Since the JDBC connection string changes on each environment we need to edit each sub report every time we switch environments.
    Is there a easy way to accomplish this on all sub reports at one shot?
    I am aware that if we use ODBC connection it would be easy since we can just change the DSN config and it will start working. But we are not using ODBC connection since We are seeing that our report (with too many sub reports) crashes when we use ODBC driver for Postgres.
    Any help/suggestion would be appreciated.

    CR also has a fully support Java Reporting Engine. If you have Java developers available check out this forum:

  • Looking for Report Writer Example

    I am building an application that allows the users to select the columns they want to see then select filters based on those columns depending on the datatype. Date ranges, etc. All this is working fine. The next step is to save the report parameters the user has selected and let them name the report for future use. It could be a simple as saving the created querystring or, ideally, save the parameters so the filter page could be re-created in its current state to allow changes.
    Does anyone have any examples of something like this?
    thanks

  • Creating a Library in Report Writer for FI-SL

    Hello everybody,
    When creating a library (table ZZGLTRS) for Report Writer for FI-SL I have the following message:
    "Table ZZGLTRS is not installed in Report Writer" and the description of the message says:
    "The Report Writer can only report on tables if the attributes of these tables that are relevant for reporting are defined in control tables. This is not the case for table ZZGLTRS"
    Does anybody knows what does this "control tables" mean? Should I activate this ZZGLTRS table somewhere to be used in report Writer?
    Thanks in advance!!!

  • Report Writer report required by Business Area GSBER  for table GLPCT  ECC6

    Please help,
    I have a requirement for report writer report by Business Area (GSBER) for table GLPCT.

    In report I am able to select GSBER in General Data Selection and generate.
    However when I execute report I get error message GR410 "Characteristic GSBER cannot be combined with key figures" .

    Hi ,
    If you are using the cube: 0FIAP_C20, then i guess you are using the standard extractor 0FI_AP_20 . One thing which i remember that there is a standard view in ECC : LFC1_AEDAT.
    This view has two tables : LFC1 and BWFI_AEDA2.
    LFC1 - Vendor master (transaction figures)
    BWFI_AEDA2 - BW FI: Log Table for Changed Transaction Figures
    This standard extractor uses table LFC1 to show vendor balances.
    And the table BWFI_AEDA2 contains the log of the changes that has taken place business area wise and account no of the vendor wise .
    Please check the view definition to confirm the same . Once you will see the joining conditions in this view you will get a clear picture of the above point .
    So for your issue, you can do datasource enhancement of 0FI_AP_20 .
    The logic will be based on LIFNR,BUKRS,GJAHR available from the datasource , fetch the business area from this view and populate it in your datasource .
    But first check in the table BWFI_AEDA2 whether for the field BWFI_AEDA2-TABNAME= lfc1 , business areas are maintained .
    Hope the above reply was helpful.
    Thanks & regards

  • What is the significance of report writer and report painter

    hi all,
    can anyone throw light on report write and report painter, when and why it used with examples.
    thanxs in advance

    Dear Hari,

    Report Painter allows you to create reports using data from SAP application components, which you can adapt to meet your individual requirements.
    Many of your reporting requirements can already be met by using the standard reports provided by various SAP application components. If these SAP standard reports do not meet your reporting needs, Report Painter enables you to define your specific reports quickly and easily.
    Report Painter fulfills a function similar to Report Writer, but is easier to use. Most of the functions found in Report Writer have been built into Report Painter; however, you do not need to be familiar with all Report Writer concepts (such as Sets) in order to use Report Painter.
    When executing a Report Painter report, it is displayed by the system in Report Writer format. You thus have access to the same functions as for Report Writer reports defined in the same way, and can combine Report Painter and Report Writer reports together in a report group.
    Report Painter uses a graphical report structure, which forms the basis for your report definition and displays the rows and columns as they appear in the final report output.
    To facilitate report definition, you can use many of the standard reporting objects provided by SAP (such as libraries, row/column models, and standard layouts) in your own specific reports. When you define a Report Painter report you can use groups (sets). You can also enter characteristic values directly.
    Advantages of Report Painter include:
    Flexible and simple report definition
    Report definition without using sets
    Direct layout control: The rows and columns are displayed in the report definition as they appear in the final report output, making test runs unnecessary.
