Maintain Report Parameters for Product
Here you establish the report parameters for reporting in
Product Cost Planning.
You create a report tree. A report
tree is a hierarchy of all reports for a particular application
The standard system provides one
report tree for each application component, which contains all
reports in that area. If you want to use this tree, you must import
it from client 0 into the client in which you work.
You can create your own report tree
or modify an existing tree.
You can make comparisons between
different report trees. For example, when you install a new release
you can compare the original SAP tree in client 0 with the tree in
your application client and, if it differs, reimport it.
If you access the Product Cost
Controlling Information System from the main menu through the
general information system, you first see the report tree you
assigned. If you deactivate the report tree in Customizing, the
reports will be shown in a list rather than in a tree structure.
These are the reports that are in your report list.
If you are using the standard report
trees, you don't need to check the report list. However, if you add
reports to your report tree, you must also add them to the report
list. All the reports that you use in your report trees should also
be in your report list.
If you access a report from within
another report, you can only select from the reports that are in
the report list.
Setting the indicator "Parameters" in
the report list allows you to control whether the input parameters
of a report are shown when the report is accessed.
The indicator RWSelScn controls
whether the standard report selection interface or the Report
Writer request screen appears when you access a report.
Cost element groups / Cost component groups
Here you enter cost element group and
cost component groups that you want to use in your reports. These
groups determine the row structure of your reports. The standard
system provides a cost element group (7K-KSTAR-ALL) and a cost
component group. (7-R-ELEMT-AL). You only need to add further
entries to the group list when you need a special row structure in
your reports (such as when you need to see subtotals). If you use
the groups in the standard system, the rows of your reports show
all cost elements and cost components, and a sum of all
The group at the highest position
used automatically when a report is accessed, but in the report you
can select different cost elements as needed.
By setting the appropriate indicator,
you can have the cost element group or cost component group
displayed when the report is accessed. If this indicator is not
set, the cost element group or cost component group will not be
shown when a report is accessed.
1. If you want to add your own master
data groups to your group list, you must first create them. You
maintain cost element groups in the application menu of cost and
revenue element accounting, you maintain cost component groups
under the menu option Maintain Cost Component Group for Report
