The SAP Query Tool

The SAP Query tool, in its standard form, is designed so that an end user with no technical skills can create a report from scratch. It has five basic screens that an end user can go through to create a report. Each of the screens performs a function, and the end user can navigate between the screens by using navigational arrows on the Application toolbar. These are the five basic screens:

  • Title, Format (Screen 1)—You use this screen to give a report a name.
  • Select Field Group (Screen 2)—You use this screen to select the field groups that contain fields you want to include in your report.
  • Select Field (Screen 3)—You use this screen to select the fields from the field groups you want to include in your report.
  • Selections (Screen 4)—You use this screen to add any additional fields to your report's selection screen to further specify your report output upon execution.
  • Basic List Line Structure (Screen 5)—You use this screen to define what you want the report to look like.
