Exporting a Report to an Application Server 


You can export a report in an external file to the application server or to a presentation server. The application server is the computer that is running the SAP R/3 System, for example, a UNIX-based workstation assigned to your department.

On the output parameters selection screen in the group box Output medium, you can select the checkbox Append reports to specify whether an existing export file is to be extended or overwritten.


  1. Choose Report ® Export... The dialog box Export to Presentation Server appears.
  2. The current output medium is marked by a green traffic light. Choose the pushbutton Application server....
  3. Specify the export format you require:

For this table format you can also check the function Format figures.

Choose this if you want the following column attributes (the settings in the report layout) to be taken into consideration when exporting in table format: scaling, decimal places, change +/- sign.

If you do not choose the indicator Format figures, all the figures are exported in an unformatted form. The column attribute Print unit is not taken into consideration during the export.

  1. In the group box Output file, enter the file name for exporting the report.
  2. Choose Continue.


The system exports the report.
