The following reporting types are available in the InfoSet Query:
The Development reporting type is used for creating queries that are going to be used on a long-term basis. This means that queries can be saved (as executable programs), incorporated into menus, or distributed.
To meet all technical prerequisites for the allocation process, the global query area is always used in the Development reporting type when calling up the InfoSet Query.
The Ad-hoc Reporting reporting type is primarily used as a quick and simple way of creating specific reports that, as a rule, are not needed more than once.
Ad-hoc Reporting is available in both the global and standard query areas.
You can also save queries for Ad-hoc Reporting. In the global query area, these queries are always saved in a temporary development class. There is no communication with the Workbench Organizer.
In the standard query area, queries can only be transported with the tools designed for it.
You can find further information about creating and transporting queries under Transporting Query Objects and in the sections below.
Calling up an InfoSet Query has been set up in Human Resources (HR) so that the InfoSet Query starts with fixed values for the parameters Query Area and User Group, and only Ad-hoc Reporting can take place. This means that a user who starts the InfoSet Query using HR's information systems either goes directly with the assigned InfoSet to the initial screen of the InfoSet Query, or he/she can choose between several assigned InfoSets.
In this type of call up in HR, the InfoSet Query is called an Ad-hoc Query.
The reporting type a user can use depends on the report used to start the InfoSet Query. You can find further information about the reports under Components for Calling Up the InfoSet Query.
