4.2   Financial Reporting Analysis with  SAP Business Objects Crystal Reports

This chapter gives an overview of the SAP Business Objects Crystal Report templates. Please note that the whole reporting is based on the sub-ledger postings on SAP Bank Analyzer and does not consider postings for general ledger.  

Balance Report

The balance statement is provided as an SAP Business Objects Crystal Report template (Balance Report). The  Balance Report is based on a point in the Calculation. For detailed information regarding the structures and result and result objects of the Balance, Report sees the configuration guide (Appendix).  

Profit & Loss Report

The profit and loss are provided as SAP Business Objects Crystal Report template (Profit & Loss Report). The Profit & Loss Report is based on a period of time calculation. The income statement considers the balance of income and expenses. It is part of the annual financial statements. For detailed information regarding the structures and result objects of the Profit & Loss Report see the configuration guide (Appendix).  

General Remarks

The basic framework is the sub-ledger reporting reconciled balance statement and profit and loss statement. The balance sheet from the accounting sub leger for financial accounting is based on the definitions given by the Committee of  European Bank Supervisors within the core section of the framework of the guidelines of financial reporting. The two sub-ledger report templates – Balance Report and Profit & Loss Report – are based on a three-level structure hierarchy that reflects the respective balance sheet positions. The reports provide the option to drill down directly to the G/L account by choosing the relevant balance position in the main report. It is also possible to check the composition of a position, which can contain multicurrency amounts (by choosing the $ amount icon in the main report.) The main reports present the amounts in two different approaches. The first column is based on actual-figures in reporting currency in the Result Data Layer. The second column – Ad hoc amount – represents the converted figures from the reporting currency with the current exchange rate. Note that it is a conversation only and not valuation.

 4.3   Financial Reporting Analysis with SAP Business Objects Explorer

This chapter gives an overview of how to use the SAP Business Objects Explores for exploring data of created information Spaces.

The Creation of Information Spaces is described in the configuration guide (chapter SAP Business Objects information Space Creation).

The following Information Spaces examples are listed in the configuration guide:

  • Sub ledger The Sub ledger Information Space is created for exploring the RDL postings
  • Sub ledger Details The Sub ledger Details Information Space is created to explain the RDL postings with SDL enhancements. Some additional SDL attributes like Profit Center are available in this information Space.
  • An Information Space is a collection of objects mapped to data for specific business operation or activity. In this case, the information Spaces are designed to provide information regarding financial reporting.


The following steps describe the launch of information spaces:

Access SAP business objects Explorer via the BI launchpad:


 Input your username and password and choose Log on.

Under My Applications, go to the SBO Explorer.

Scroll through the available information Spaces or use the search function to select the relevant Information Space and start the selected information Space.

An Explore tab page opens. Then you can navigate through the information space.
