What are 80% of all SAP users using?  We’re using the SAP GUI, which amazingly, has an entry in Wikipedia.  For many of us, it is a part of our daily lives and has been for several years.

If you are new to SAP ERP, I encourage you to check out the Ultimate SAP User Guide available on Amazon.  If you are experienced, I encourage you to have a look.  It covers release 6.0 and contains step-by-step instructions and screen shots.

Here is what I learned from this book:

  • I learned about the hold/set data feature; this will improve productivity greatly with SAP. I also experienced trouble navigating the Object Manager especially in the SAP HR/HCM area; this book reviews that.
  • The Clipboard feature is a must-know for any SAP user. I have used the ALV for years for reporting; but I didn’t know about the Freeze Column feature. The book reviews how to use the SAP InfoSet Query – while SAP is no longer investing in this, it is still great for ad hoc reporting and can be used as a datasource to many SAP BI tools.
  • The book uses the FLIGHT demo model which is available on any ERP system. I like too that the book reviews SAP Workplace, a common area where many SAP Workflows and approvals reside.
  • There are printing tips, sending the spool to PDF and much much more. I highly recommend this book if you are a new SAP user or even a long time SAP user such as myself.

How do you manage substitutes in SAP if you are out of the office?  How do you convert a spool to a PDF?  How do you manage object services?  It is all covered in this book.

This book was edited by SAP Mentor Jon Reed and Mentors Simha R. Magal and Leonardo De Araujo

Leo says “There is FOR SURE, something for everyone to take away from this book.”  I agree.  Check out the Ultimate SAP User Guide today.
