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.
