Key Concept

Enhancement options allow you to add your own functionality to SAP standard programs without modifying the original code. They resemble plug-ins that you can add or remove any time as per your requirement and your functionality remains the same even after an upgrade from SAP. 

The standard output of the Wage Type Reporter transaction code PC00_M99_CWTR displays the wage type vertically. If you select 10 wage types, the system displays 10 lines for each employee. Other information of the employee such as employee number or employee name repeats 10 times with each wage type as shown in Figure 1. Sometimes getting the required result from this output is difficult. For example, you might want to get the sum of three wage types (/101, /110, and /560) for all employees. In this case you may have to run this report three times, or you have to transfer to Excel for calculations. If you have thousands of employees, scrolling through them is hard.
