Functional Spec? Functional Spec is mainly prepared for the purpose of developing the new reports (this happens only when SAP standard report not achieve the client purpose) using the ABAP Program. for ABAPers you need to give the details of the Tables , Fields and the logic how to pick the value and get the report.

The information contains in the functional specs are:

a)Document segment (BSEG): which contains the company code,posting keys, vendors,etc.

b)the line items(BKPF) consists of document type, etc.

for example: from BSEG table you have to go to the field of BUKRS for company code, BSCHL for Posting Keys. From BKPF table you have to go to the field of BELNR for document Number, etc.

Based on your functional specification the Abaper will design the report using his technical specifications.

The above are examples only to understand. There are plenty of tables & fields for FI, CO and Assets separately.

time and productivity are saved during development stage because the programmers can program instead of also working out the logic of the user experience S/W or program will be developed based on the functional specs it consist of business requirments.who all can have access to this program and level of security whether it is at co.code level or country level .brief detail about the business process and the need of your cutomized program/report security consideration.Please assign points. if the above are useful. Functional spec are based on the business requirment and contains details of end user expectations of the product Functionality document describes requested properties of inputs and outputs the blueprint for how you want a particular application to look and work it details what the finished product will do who a user will interact with it and what it will look like the key benefit of writing up a funtional spec is streamlining the development process.

Step 3 Get the amount ( WRBTR) from BSIS ( Open and cleared both are in BSIS) Step 4 Take the Document Number (BELNR) from BSIS and get the vendor number for that doc number from BSIK ( open item). he could find that out.for customers who reside in California between the date range specified on the selection screen 3. depends on the abbapper) .

Only addition is the vendor name and number Security/ Authorizations: .Eg I need one new report like in the output i need only company code. Error handling Dependencies References Out of scope requirements NA 2.

if you give the .156001 2000 156002 90000001 for the above requirement with the input selection criteria like as below Company Code ( ) ( ) Vendor ( ) ( ) if you give input selection as above as required you will get the output as given above Logic should be as below: for input selection Company Code .LFB1-HKONT You will get the recon account details in the LFB1 table .BUKRS is the ABAP field for the company code Vendor .LFB1-LIFNR Recon account .LFB1-BUKRS Vendor .LIFNR for the output Company Code .

logic as above . . ABAP er will write the program for the same.
