Executing a Report

With the function you can execute a report. This means that the system selects the data that meets the specified criteria and displays it in a number of report lists. This function lets you execute the desired report. Since the procedure for executing reports is different in each application, see the corresponding chapter in the online documentation for your application.

Once you have executed a report, you can process the displayed report in a number of ways and navigate through the report data using the functions available. Navigation functions let you display a number of different lists to analyze the data from different viewpoints. For more information on the navigation functions, see Navigation. To read about how to navigate using the hotspots on the report list, see Hotspots on the Report List.

For information on the report/report interface, characteristic hierarchies, exception reporting and the use of currencies and other settings for report lists, How to Process the Report List.
