We use logical database in HR Report Programming, in which you will be provided with readymade selection screen which will be having many fields on selection screen.

If you need only certain fields only and want to hide unwanted fields, then you can achieve it by using report category.


  Step1. When you use logical database in your program, the default selection screen will be provided to you which will look like below screenshot (Here LDB is PNP).


Step2. From above screen we need only Payroll area & payroll period and other fields to be hidden. This can be achieved by assigning report category to the report.

Step3. To assign report category to the report, go to transaction SE38 and open the report to which you want to assign the report

Step4. Select Goto -> Attributes.
