Calling Up Reports via the Report/Report Interface 

Use

The report/report interface allows you to interactively start report groups, ABAP programs, report portfolio reports, drill-down reports, and transactions while displaying the report output.

Prerequisites

If receiver reports have been defined for the reports report group or library, you can call up these reports using the Call up report function.

Procedure

You can generally access the receiver report from the sender report by selecting a cell and then double clicking this or choosing .

When you call the receiver report the characteristics' restrictions that gave rise to the value in the sender report are passed on to the receiver report.

If, for example, a value is characterized in the sender report by the characteristics Year, Cost element, Period and Value type, these characteristics are passed on to the receiver report.

You have four alternate ways of calling up a report using the report/report interface, whereby the starting position is the deciding factor for the receiver report:

The receiver report is called up with the selection criteria that gave rise to this particular value.

If there is only one receiver report, this is displayed immediately; otherwise a list appears from which you can select a report that is then displayed.

In the following example the cells have been given coordinates for easier identification. Cells B2 and D4 have been selected and thus the area in between is completed as a rectangle and selected.
