ABAP/4 Query Hints and Tips

Please refer to the new site :-

The purpose of the SAP Query are for users with no programming knowledge.  It is also used by abapers to create simple reports for the users.

You can easily create three types of query reports :

1.  Basic lists (details list)
2.  Statistics (counting etc.)
3.  Ranked lists 

When you start using version 4.6x, you can see a Quick Viewer button in the Query Main screen. It is suppose to be much simplier that the original Query but it is up to you to decide whether is it true.

To create a report with the QuickViewer, all you need to to do is enter texts such as titles, and select the fields and options that define the structure of the report. You can assign a specific sequence to the fields by numbering them.

If necessary, you can edit the lists either through drag and drop in WYSIWYG mode, or by using the functions in the available toolbars. Data can also be send to external programs such as MS Excel or MS Word for further processing.

The only problem with QuickViewer is that it cannot read cluster table.
