Assign Report category to Report

Requirement:

Assign report category to a report.

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.

Solution:

  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.

            No problem – you probably could have done it yourself…  With blogs and documents there is an option to edit your content – just hit the Edit link in the top right grey Actions box and you should be able to make changes and re-publish.
