4.2   Financial Reporting Analysis with  SAP Business Objects Crystal Reports

This chapter gives an overview on 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 a 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 see the configuration guide (Appendix).


Profit & Loss Report

The profit and loss is provided as SAP Business Objects Crystal Report template (Profit & Loss Report). The Profit & Loss Report is based on a period 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 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 which reflect the respective balance sheet positions. The reports provide the option to drill down directly to 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 current exchange rate. Note that it is a conversation only and not a valuation.


  1. Access to SAP Business objects crystal reports via the BI Launch pat

  1. Input username and password and choose Log on.
  2. On the Documents tab pages, go to the SAP Crystal Reports (for example Documents                                 Folders                 Public Folders                  SAP                        SAP.FS                  SAP.FS.BA).   Crystal Reports are marked as the type Crystal Report.
  3. The the adjustment of the Crystal Report templates is described in the configuration guide (chapter SAP Crystal Report Enhancement).


4.3   Financial Reporting Analysis with SAP Business Objects Explorer

  • 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
