SAP List Viewer unifies and simplifies the use of lists in SAP systems. A uniform user interface and list format is available for all lists. This prevents redundant functions.

SAP List Viewer can be used to view both single-level lists and multilevel sequential lists.

      Single-level lists contain any number of rows that have no hierarchical relationship to each other.

      Multilevel sequential lists consist of any number of rows that have two hierarchical levels. Multilevel lists have header rows and item rows; the item rows are subordinate to the header rows. For each header row there can be any number of subordinate item rows.

You can view subtotals and totals rows in both single-level lists and multilevel sequential lists.


SAP List Viewer is used in controlling for reports such as the following:

        Reports from cost centers and business processes

        Actual line item reports from cost centers and business processes

        Commitment line item reports

        Plan line item reports from cost centers, orders, business processes, cost objects

        Budget reports

        Cycle reports

        Order selection (CO-PC)

        Flexible itemization (CO-PC)


Not all lists in SAP components use the full range of functions available in SAP List Viewer. Some lists in SAP system components offer special functions that extend beyond the normal range of SAP List Viewer.
