In this month's column, Gary's tip is a step-by-step demonstration of how the graphical interface in the 4.6 B&C release can be used to spiff up CO-PA reports by personally customizing the report headers with the addition of selected pictures, logos, and other images - even web addresses.
Here’s a little trick you can use to spiff up your CO-PA reports by adding selected images to your report headers. SAP’s 4.6 B&C release includes an entirely new reporting format called the graphical interface, which offers much improved navigation within the report, along with a better visual presentation of the data.

In this month’s column, I’ll show you, step by step, how you can add visual interest to a simple CO-PA report.
