Cause and Prerequisites

Solution

1. To use the 'Dynamic Selections' mentioned above, the statement

2. To adjust the fields of the functional groups 'Transaction figures' or

your requirements, proceed as follows:

Functional group 'Transaction figures':
SE36 >> Log. database = SDF >> menu 'Extras' >> 'Selection views' >>
Copy (F7). Enter the following in the 'Copy Selection Views' dialog
box:

Origin Name Log. database
Source view SAP STANDARD SDF
Target view CUS STANDARD

>> Continue (Enter).
Now change the selection view 'CUS STANDARD' as follows:
In the 'Tables/Nodes' box, select the 'FAGLFREESEL' structure by
double-clicking it. Now mark all fields you want to use in the
'Dynamic Selections' in the left column with '04'. In addition, you
should mark frequently used fields in the 'Preselection' column >>
see F1 help.
Save the selection view. The selection view 'STANDARD CUS' is now the
log in all reports. DB 'SDF' active.

Functional group 'Document segment':
