S4 HANA FINANCE provides a rich experience in reporting. The new architecture is a quantum leap for reporting structure. Real time and flexibility are the core values that are delivers. With minimal skill upgrade and efforts one could achieve unthinkable reporting potential.

I intend to start this blog introducing new / enhanced transaction codes that provide exhaustive functionality utilizing numerous additional fields from the ACDOCA table. I am excited and fascinated to explore the potential of S4HANA and HANA Studio but we will get there step by step and build some financial reports together.

There is a complete list of t-codes and programs that are impacted after migrating to S4 HANA Finance. Most important that we focused on were as below:

Let us start with the most commonly used t-code FAGLL03H – G/L Account Line Item Browser (G/L View) that could set up a theme and most of the rest new t-codes become more intuitive to understand.

Please note that the old t-code FAGLL03 still works. The h-version FAGLL03H is optimized for HANA and also provides very interesting and useful, additional features for reporting and analyzing the reports.

The line item browser displays the line items that have been posted in General Ledger Accounting, and also the line items that have arisen through document splitting. The new t-code provides selection from hundreds of fields like COPA, Material Master, Customer. The new t-code also provides additional functionality as on the fly aggregates and pivot model on top of transactions detail. The output is more structured and easy to use.
