How to Display Data from Queries Using Crystal Reports
With the integration of Crystal Reports, you can use queries as the data sources for Crystal Reports. Crystal Reports supports a formatted display of this data. You can usually display Crystal Reports in the Launchpad (ABAP), which is part of a portal role or in SAP NetWeaver Business Client.
Use of Delivered Reports
You can use delivered Crystal Reports.
To do so, proceed as follows:
Activate corresponding Crystal Reports and the associated queries in BI Content Activation Workbench (transaction BSANLY_BI_ACTIVATION) or in the SAP NetWeaver BW system in Data Warehousing Workbench (transaction RSOR).
Publish the reports on SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise Server (BOE).
Publish the reports in the Content Administration Workbench (transaction /Crystal/RPTADMIN) in the BW system.
Use of Own Reports
You can create your own Crystal Reports based on a query or based on another report.
