Know About Top SAP FI Reports

SAP FI is one of the most important modules of SAP. It stands for Financial Accounting. SAP FICO is primarily for storing the financial data of an organization, although it has more functions. SAP FI also helps analyze the financial conditions of any business at a given point in time. It also has the capability to integrate with other SAP modules like SAP SD, SAP PP, SAP MM, SAP SCM, etc. Today we deal with SAP FI reports and report generation. In any SAP training whether online or offline, knowledge of reports is of paramount importance to understand how the FI specific reporting works.

When it comes to the SAP GUI (Graphical User Interface), most of the reports can be found when navigating in the manner given below :

Enter SAP GUI –> Go to –> Accounting => Finance Accounting => General Ledger => Information System => General Ledger Reports => Master Data => Chart of Accounts

The above is the navigation scheme in the latest SAP GUI. This path in the SPRO has also been shown in the graphic below. The reports section in SAP FI, on a broader perspective mainly consists of Accounts Receivable and Payable, Cost Center and Vendor related data, and also GL Accounts and consolidation.

The logics of value storage while preparing SAP FI reports

There can be different types of logic as to how the values get stored while generating SAP FI reports. For instance, some of the invoice generating report logics have been enumerated below.

Logic – 1

  1. Select AWKEY from the table BKPF where MBLNR EQ the accounts document and GJAHAR = User Entered FY (Financial Year).
  2. Select LFBNR from the table MSEG on the basis of AWKEY WHERE MSEG-MBLNR = BKPF-AWKEY[10]
  3. Select PACKNO from the table ESLH where ESLH-EBELN = MSEG- LFBNR

EXTSRVENO field of structure finally generates the invoice number.

Logic – 2

  1. SELECT AWKEY from the table BKPF where MBLNR EQ accounting number and GJAHAR = User Entered FY = output A
  2. Select LFBNR from the table MSEG based on AWKEY WHERE MSEG-MBLNR = BKPF-AWKEY[10] = output B
  3. SELECT TXZ01 from the table ESSR where LBLNI = output

BTXZ01 field of structure gives the final invoice number.

Logic – 3

  1. SELECT AWKEY from the table BKPF where MBLNR EQ accounting document number and GJAHAR = User Entered FY = output A
  2. SELECT XBLNR from EKBE where BELNR = output A from step 1 and GJAHR = User Entered FY = Output B
  3. SELECT XBLNR from RBKP where BELNR = Output B from step2 and GJAHR = User Entered FY

XBLNR field of structure generates the final invoice number.
