To find the logic for field in the Report
I would like share my knowledge on Debugging, will discuss on the how to find the logic which is developed for field in Report.
Client raised issue on report which is not working its either may standard report or customized report. Normally Standard report are working as their standards in some cases if values are not updated in structure then may be values will not get. But as per standards the report will work.
Let’s take example of standard report, Client raised issue as quantity showing wrong it is showing only single line item qty it should be cumulative qty of document.
Go to report and execute report
see example for doc number p3h05391 it is showing 293 but actually posted 293+ 50 = 343 qty
now will search what is logic in report . Actually for debugging will use /h to find debug program. But this is easy to find simple and save time also.
Go to menu bar system —> status
go to se38 enter your program or you can double click on the program name.
The following it is showing tables are used in report to fetch the data.
the following it is showing selection screen it is linked to our main input selection screen
Normally out put report fields data getiing from fieldcatlog check in your report FCAT or field catlog.
in field catlog some times seltext will directly name but some times they will write as a text-xx. double click on this and find the field name.
click on find and enter you field name and select in main program
Data always it will search from table where data fetching
and check any condition is there
Same way you check in table how data is getting, here in table two entries is there but in report it is showing one entry because of if condition greater value shown in the report.
I did a test as your step by step guide. Although it is not totally matched with my sample. But I do learned a lot from it. And in future i will try more in real case.This is very helpful fo functional ppl.
Its a good document shared by you.
It is helping me to find the logic of the reports.
Thank you .
