Define Selection Criteria

In this IMG activity, you determine the user settings for the selection criteria.

The selection criteria can be stored as defaults or as user-specific settings. Defaults are valid for all users without user-specific settings.

In the selection criteria, you determine the values with which the selection screens are preset when you call up the reports from the report tree.

The selection criteria apply only to reports in the report tree of the respective Overhead Cost Controlling component.

The following parameters can be preset:

The fiscal year can be the current fiscal year, the previous year, or another fiscal year predefined by you. If you select "Other" and no other fiscal year is predefined, no fiscal year is preset.
The period can be the current period, the previous period or a period interval predefined by you.
The interval from period 1 to the current period or previous period can also be specified as a period. In reports not executed over a period interval, the current period or the previous period is then set.
If you select "From/To" and no period is entered, no period is preset.
