CO Report Needed

Post by tallguy88 » Wed Apr 21, 2010 9:50 am

Is there a standard report that returns cost element ranges broken down by cost center. I need a report that returns month to date cost element balances by cost center. so i need the following data returned

cost element|cost center|actual postings for a period or month to date|

this seems like it should be so basic, yet no SAP consultant can show me this report.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know of anything that is as you describe but this should be as no surprise. Generally standard SAP comes with good, fairly basic, generic reporting and so should be treated as a suite of templates and examples rather than meeting everyone reporting needs.

Look at report painter/report writer functionality as this report can easily be written using them.

Try running S_ALR_87013611 with the cost center standard hierarchy in the Cost Center Group selection field.
Alternatively try running the report with * in the Cost Center Group selection field.
These are both variants of the same excellent standard SAP report that most companies use.
If these do not work for you, what is the purpose of your particular requirement?

Mitch,

I have tried the standard reports in SAP Report Painter. Most of them that I try to run end up giving me an error. It is very frustrating. Any suggestions?

John,

S_ALR_87013611 is a nice report; however, I would like to see one report that displays the cost element with the related cost center for this cost element on a printable report. This should be an easy thing to do in Report Painter. I am not able to make it work. Clicking on each cost center in S_ALR_87013611 is better than nothing but it is time consuming. Is the report I am looking for possible?
