Product drilldowns contain convenient functions for navigating in the dataset. They also contain a number of other functions for interactive work with reports. SAP graphics, SAP Mail and Excel Listviewer are all linked to product drilldowns.


See Checklist for Product Drilldown .


Some of the important functions for CO-PC drilldown reporting include:

  • Exception reporting

Exception conditions that specify whether an object merits special notice. You can enter this information in a key figure in a line or a column. The exceptional fields will be colored. This way, you can quickly recognize items such as variances that are above a certain value.

  • ABC analysis

Characteristic values can be classified with regard to the importance of particular key figures.

  • Requirements

You can set requirements for a column. Then only those lines that meet these requirements will be displayed. With this function, you can leave out all lines that have a variance smaller than 3%, for example. Lines that do not meet the requirements are presented in sum in a line ‘Remaining...’.

  • Ranking list

You can create ranking lists with Top N / Top % or Last N / Last %. You can use this function to have only certain reports displayed, such as the top 5% of materials with the highest absolute variances.

  • Sorting

You can have the lines sorted in ascending or descending order according to column value.
