Satisfying your company's Human Resource reporting requirements is always a challenge, beginning with the assessment process through the selection of the right reporting strategy. Deciding which method is best begins with a proper assessment of the reporting tools available. Author and Executive SAP Consultant Danielle Larocca compares reporting tools available in your HR module: standard reports delivered with your R/3 system, the SAP Query, and the InfoSet Query.
Satisfying your company’s Human Resources (HR) and Payroll reporting requirements is always a challenge, beginning with the assessment process through the selection of the right reporting strategy. Deciding which method is best begins with an assessment of the reporting tools available to you.
As part of the standard R/3 installation, five reporting methods are available: (1) Standard list reports and (2) standard structural graphics are the two types of delivered reports. The (3) InfoSet Query and the (4) SAP Query are two enduser reporting tools for HR and Payroll. The language of ABAP can be used by programmers to create (5) custom hard-coded ABAP reports. In addition to these R/3 resources, you also have the option of purchasing and installing BW or any of a dozen or so third-party reporting tools.
