What is SAP Query? Purpose and Advantages of SAP Query?
SAP Query is SAP’s tool to define and execute once own reports without knowing ABAP programming language. Let us see the key topics to explore SAP Query. Topic # 1 Topic What is Query? Purpose of Query. 2 3 4 Advantages of Query Infosets/UserGroups/Query in Detail Practical session covering important working models - I Practical session covering important models-II Various Lists and Background Scheduling In this document we shall cover Topic#1. What is SAP query and why do we need queries? Many times a need arises for SAP Users and Functional Consultants to generate quick reports without getting any ABAP coding done – time taken to complete the coding in development, transport and test it in QA system and then transport to production – is sometimes too long. In such cases, SAP query is a tool provided by SAP for generating these kinds of reports. Purpose

  

The SAP Query application is used to create reports not already contained in the default. It has been designed for users with little or no knowledge of the SAP programming language ABAP. SAP Query offers users a broad range of ways to define reports and create different types of reports such as basic lists, statistics, and ranked lists. These outputs can include lists on screens in table format, ALV grids, downloadable spreadsheets, and downloadable flat files. The internal report generator creates an ABAP program corresponding to the definition of the list.

Features: The SAP Query comprises five components:  Queries  InfoSet Query  Infosets  User Groups  Translation/Query Classic reporting- the creation of lists, statistics and ranked lists- are covered by the InfoSet Query and Queries components. Other components’ range of functions cover the maintenance of Infosets, the administration of user groups and also the translation of texts created in the SAP Query. All data required by a user for a report can be read from various tables. To define a report, you first have to enter individual texts, such as titles, and select the fields and options, which determine the report layout. In the WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) mode, you can edit the lists using Drag & Drop and various toolbars. Overview: The following sections describes the individual SAP Query components and provides general information about query areas, transport and authorizations Menu Path à SAP Query à Queries à SAP Query à Infosets à SAP Query à User Groups à Translation à Query Used For Maintaining Queries Maintaining Infosets Maintaining User Groups Language Comparison Transaction Code SQ01 SQ02 SQ03 SQ07

Query Components The Queries component is used by end users to maintain queries. You can carry out the following tasks:  Execute Queries and Generate Lists  Define Queries  Change Queries Infosets Components  InfoSets are special views of data sources.  An InfoSet describes which fields of a data source can be reported on in queries.  InfoSets are assigned to user groups.  End-users are able to work only with those InfoSets that are relevant to their particular area, as designated by the role or user group that they are assigned to.  Eg: Vendor master data can be important in purchasing as well as in accountancy. The relevant InfoSet is assigned to both roles/user groups. This means that queries based on this InfoSet can be copied and executed by both groups. User Groups Components 1.
2. The User Groups component is used to maintain user groups. The system administrator uses it to set up the work environment for end-users. Every user assigned to the user group is able to execute the query. Users are not allowed to modify queries from other user groups, although they may, under certain circumstances, copy and execute


Translation/Query Component  A great deal of text is generated when defining queries, InfoSets, and user groups.  The SAP Query displays these texts in the language that you chose when you logged on to the SAP system.  You can compare the text languages using the component Translation/Query.  A related text in one or more additional languages is made available for each of the texts created when defining the query.

Query Areas A query area contains a set of query objects (queries, InfoSets, and user groups) that are discrete and consistent. There are the following query areas:  Standard area  Global area Standard Area 1.Client specific 2.Query objects are not attached to the Workbench Organizer Advantage :-End users can develop queries (ad-hoc reports) in their own client that are not meant for use in the rest of the system. Global Area 1. Cross client 2. Query objects are attached to workbench organizer Advantage:-The global query area is well suited for centrally developing queries meant for use and distribution throughout the system. Authorizations End-users, system administrators, and translators must all be assigned the appropriate authorizations allowing them to work with the SAP Query. In order to give individual users targeted, specific rights, the following options are available:  Roles/user groups  Authorizations Steps to create a Query Step Description TCODE

.  Infoset Query  Queries  Quick viewer SAP Query Step-by-step procedure in configuring SAP Query SAP R/3 Query tools (SAP Query) are based on the following four main components: • • • • Query Areas Query Groups InfoSets Administrative Decisions (Company-specific) Configuration of the Query tools is done in the following manner: • • • • Create Query Groups Assign Users to Query Groups Create InfoSets Assign each InfoSet to a Query Group. Create Query Groups • Go to Transaction SQ03. create and change queries.1 2 3 Create a infoset or functional area Assignment of user group to infoset Creation of query based on infoset SQ02 SQ03 SQ01 Tools for Queries The following are the tools to manage.

• Ensure that you are in the correct SAP Query area by navigating to Environment à Query Areas • • Select the “Standard Area (Client-specific). Now in the main screen. enter the name of the Query Group in the User Group field and click on CREATE .

Assign Users to Query Groups • Click on the “Assign Users and InfoSets” button • Enter the SAP User-Ids of all the users you wish to include in the test group.• Enter the description of the User Group in the next popup that appears. • User Group ZSAPTECH_GRP is created. . Click on SAVE to save your entries.

Create InfoSets • • Go to transaction SQ02 Ensure that you are in the correct SAP Query area by navigating to Environment à Query Areas • Enter the name of the InfoSet you wish to create and click on CREATE. .

percentages etc Ranked List . They determine which fields of a logical database can be evaluated in queries.Creating Ad Hoc query (HCM related infoset query) The InfoSet Query is a useful tool for maintaining queries within the SAP Query and is suitable for developing queries and for ad-hoc reporting. the name Ad-Hoc Query is used instead of InfoSet Query. Go to Tcode SQ03.Simple reports • Statistics . When InfoSet Query is used in HR for ad-hoc reporting. A special feature is the Human Resources (HR) component.for analytical reports The first step in the process of creating an Ad-Hoc query is to create a Functional Area.reports with statistical functions such as Averages. Ad-Hoc query provides three different kinds of reports: • • Basic List . Function area provides special views of logical databases. InfoSet Query is suitable for reporting in all areas of the SAP R/3 system. .

.Select Query areas Menu->Environment->Query areas Select the radio button ‘Global area’.

Click on ‘Choose’ Create user group Here you specify the users who should be authorized to run the query. A user group is always associated with a Functional Area. .Go to the menu path Environment => User Group or SQ03 à Give a user group name in the screen. .

Master Recipe (2). Routing (N).Developing SAP Query for Task List Data Extraction Purpose: To create an SAP query to extract task list data from system. system will populate the following window. Scope: All task lists pertaining to Production and Planning.

Once you have done with above steps you will get “Choose Data Source” screen. Here in the following step you need to connect different tables properly in order to get task list data.

We are starting with MAPL (Assignment of Task Lists to Materials) table. Similarly, we need to take following tables in order to get the appropriate information. PLKO (Task list – header) PLPO (Task list - operation/activity) PLAS (Task list - selection of operations/activities) CRHD (Work Center Header) CRTX (Text for the Work Center or Production Resource/Tool) MARA (General Material Data) MAKT (Material Descriptions)

Between PLPO and CRHD, the default link is with field OBJTY. You need to delete this link and create with PLPO-ARBID and CRHD-OBJID. For this click on ARBID in PLPO table and drag the cursor towards OBJID in CRHD table. Afterwards it should like

After you finish with above activities the screen will look like



mainly you need to select which fields you want to see in selection screen and which one in output.MARA MATNR MAKT MATNR In the following steps. .

and the Result of your efforts is Transport of SAP Query objects By Shiva Kumar Tirumalasetty. Deloitte Consulting India Pvt Ltd .

The transport action is performed based on the radio button selected on the screen. 2. From Transaction SQ02/SQ03->Environment->Transports: On the next screen. By using the standard program ‘RSAQR3TR’ By using the transport option available on the application bar in Transactions SQ02 or SQ03. all the options come up for transporting the queries. .ABAP Queries can be transported to different clients by the following two ways: 1.

. The User Group is to be transported first. 4. User Group transport Infoset transport Infoset and Query transport Queries transport The transports are to be made in the specified order. 2. followed by the Infoset and then the Queries. all the options come up for transporting the queries. The transport action is performed based on the radio button selected on the screen.The transports are to be made in the following order: 1. 3. By using the standard program ‘RSAQR3TR’: Execute the standard program RSAQR3TR On the next screen.

Design Logic: 1. The expired query will not be allowed to run in production. during query execution). 2. Maintain a custom table with two fields – query name and query expiry date. Design a custom function module which will collect the current SAP query name at run time (i. .Once the query is transported or uploaded in the destination system in the method specified above. the same can be used there for displaying the data fetched from the database. check the expiry date of that query from the custom table and generate an error message if the query is expired or work as per the code in the infoset if it’s not expired. Setting the Expiry date in SAP Query Business Requirement: The client wants to maintain expiry dates to each and every SAP queries that are running in production.e.
