Changing and Creating Sender/Receiver AssignmentsLocate this document in the navigation structure


To be able to use report-report interfaces in executed queries, you must define a sender/receiver assignment.

You use the sender/receiver assignment to make the settings required to connect a query in SAP BEx to the report-report interface (RRI). You can assign receiver reports to a sender report - a BEx query - in either the BW system or in another SAP system.


Creating Sender/Receiver Assignments

  1. On the SAP Easy Access screen in the BW system, choose SAP Menu → Business Explorer → Query → Maintain Sender-Receiver Assignment. The Maintain Sender/Receiver Assignment screen appears.
  2. Select one of the two tab pages and enter the required data.




    Enter the technical name of the sender query or select a query using input help.


    If you want to assign the same jump destinations to all queries for an InfoProvider, enter the technical name of the InfoProvider or select it using input help.

  3. Choose Create. The Maintain Sender/Receiver Assignment dialog box appears.
  4. Under Report Type, select a receiver. You have the following options:
