I sort of “stumbled” into this feature of using Analysis Office with S/4HANA on premise (in this case, 1909). I think it is a great feature, especially for finance users
Start by using transaction RAAOE inside S/4HANA, “Launch Analysis Workbook”
I selected the Asset History Sheet query
At the selection screen, most of the prompt values are already populated.
This is what is returned by default
Turn on pause refresh to save trips to and from the S/4HANA server
Move account determination to the background filter
Move asset number to rows
Click the Pause/Refresh from the ribbon again to refresh the query
Result is the asset history sheet in Excel by asset; a possible audit schedule.
For fun, search on “asset” as shown above and review the results
So what is is nice is these queries are all “out of the box”. You just need Analysis Office and authorizations of course.
What do you think?
