The SAP R/3 System includes a report table that serves as a model for Report Painter and Report Writer. This report table is preconfigured and cannot be updated. The report table provides a logical view of various database tables and includes all characteristics, key figures, and predefined columns.
In Cost Center Accounting, table CCSS is used as the transfer structure. For special, user-defined reports in Overhead Cost Controlling, you can also use table RWCOOM.
In a library, you collect the characteristics, key figures, and predefined columns from the report table, which you need for your Report Painter or Report Writer reports. The table name is stored in the header of each library. Characteristics are non-numerical fields. They represent criteria, by which you can select data records. Examples of characteristics are the controlling area and fiscal year. Key figures are numeric fields, which can be evaluated in a report. Examples include overall costs and activity quantities. Predefined columns consist of a key figure and one or more characteristics. They are used for the fast definition of frequently-used columns. Examples include total actual costs for the current fiscal year or plan fixed costs for the previous fiscal year.
A report can only be generated using characteristics, key figures, and predefined columns found in the library assigned to the report. In library maintenance, you can assign a newly defined library to a table. You also define the permitted characteristics, key figures and predefined columns. The SAP R/3 System provides an overview of each of the three categories in which you can select the objects allowed for a given library. By specifying the position in the Position column, you can determine the sequence in which characteristics, key figures and predefined columns are displayed by the R/3 System in the Report Painter selection list. This allows you to place at the beginning of the selection list any entries commonly used in reports.
Standard libraries 1C1 and 101 have not been supported since Release 2. However. The transaction currency is the currency in which the given documents are posted. For methods that also take marginal costs into account. use library 1AB. use library 1RU. there are special reports located in library 1GK in addition to the reports found in library 1VK.1. Costs in Transaction Currency (SWTG): Overall costs in transaction currency. When you use this key figure. Costs in Target Currency (SWZG): Overall costs in target currency. the R/3 System does not offered the objects with the report definition using Report Painter. Quantity (SMEG): Overall posted quantity.
Important Characteristics and Key Figures in Cost Center Accounting (Table CCSS)
The following are some of the most important characteristics and key figures for Cost Center Accounting. The SAP R/3 System still includes libraries 1C1 and 1O1 so that user-defined reports based on these libraries can continue to be used. and exchange rate type.If you select objects without positioning or with position "0". Key Figures: • • • Costs (SWKG): Overall costs in controlling area currency The controlling area currency is the currency used for cost accounting in CO. All reports for cost accounting methods based exclusively on the full costing method are located in library 1VK. The standard reports for these libraries have been deleted.). internal order. The R/3 System can make automatic currency conversions based on predefined average exchange rates. For variance analyses. For summarization reports. etc. The object currency is the currency defined in the master record of a Controlling object (cost center. exchange rate date. The transaction currency can differ from the controlling area currency and the object currency. Costs in Object Currency (SWOG): Overall costs in object currency. you can not use these characteristics in Report Writer reports.
The standard reports delivered with Cost Center Accounting are summarized in the following libraries. the system prompts you in the report selection screen for additional entries regarding target currency.
they are measured in time or quantity units. the PERBL characteristic is used in Report Writer reports. Cost elements are costrelevant items in a chart of accounts. but need not be. Reversals in FI and transactionbased and periodic repostings in CO are treated as credit postings. The controlling area represents the highest organizational unit in Controlling. target costs. plan costs. Version (VRSN): Controlling-area based collection of year-dependent indicators for plan data. Fiscal Year (GJAHR): The fiscal year defines a time period. Statistical Key Figure (STAGR): Key that uniquely identifies a statistical key figure. Value Type (WTTP): Indicator for distinguishing different value categories (such as actual costs. group view or Profit Center view (see: Parallel Valuations). Statistical key figures represent activities and statistics of a cost center or an order. In activity type planning. Scheduled Activity Quantity (SDIS): The planned input quantity on receivers of a given activity. Statistical Quantity (SSME): Posted quantities for statistical key figures. control data is used to determine whether the price for valuation of the activity types is set manually or is calculated iteratively via price calculation. Debit/Credit Indicator (CO): Indicator used to distinguish debit and credit postings in CO. iterative activity price. Activity types represent the activity produced by a cost center. As a rule. exchange rate type. Cost centers specify where the costs were incurred. The fiscal year can be identical to the calendar year. They are measured in time or quantity units. usually 12 months. integrated planning. Cost Center (KOSTL): Key that uniquely identifies a cost center.

Characteristics: • • Controlling Area (KOKRS): Key that uniquely identifies a controlling area. They are used to enter all costs within the overall cost accounting system.) in database tables. Cost Element (KSTAR): Key that uniquely identifies a cost element.• • • •
Activity Quantity (SLST): Posted quantities for activity types. copy permission. such as for the delta version. version lock. Activity Type (LSTAR): Key that uniquely identifies an activity type. Actual Valuation (VALUTYP): Controls whether data is carried using legal view. Capacity (SKAP): The technically possible output of a cost center and activity type for a given period. For secondary postings: Senders are given credit postings and the receivers are given debit postings. for which the organization has to create an inventory and a balance. etc. average activity price. Primary postings are treated here as target postings (debits). and value dates. Period (PERBL): The period block shows the highest period included in a data record.
You can find examples of report definition that refer to the new RWCOOM table in the following standard reports: • • • • List: Budget/actual/commitment (6OBU-001) List: Overall plan/actual/commitment (6OPL-001) Area: Actual/budget/commitment (1SET-001) Cost centers: Cost component split (1SKS-001)
To create. choose Documentation to call up description of previously selected key figures and characteristics. Costs in object currency (SWOG) and Costs in transaction currency (SWTG) the RWCOOM table offers the characteristic Currency type (CURTYPE).
. which are not contained in the CCSS table. these tables are assigned to the following libraries: • • • 1CT: Cost centers: Special reports 602: Internal orders Special reports 9A2: Business processes Special reports
The RWCOOM table contains key figures. object or transaction currency. for example. In maintenance or in the display of key figures or characteristics. call up the relevant Controlling (CO) component and choose: Information system → Tools → Report Painter → Report Writer → Library → Display/Change/Create/Delete • • • • Choose Utilities → Catalog to display an overview of all libraries for a table. display or maintain a library. You use this characteristic when executing a report to define whether the report should be displayed in controlling area. Characteristics. As a standard. for budgets and activity prices. Instead of the characteristic Costs in Controlling area currency (SWKG). see Further reading → FI-SL Report Writer → Libraries.Special Features of Table RWCOOM
You can use table RWCOOM to create user-defined reports in Overhead Cost Controlling.
