Publisher Comments:

SAP R/3 for Everyone is the nontechnical user's guide to working with SAP R/3, the leading business enterprise software product in the world. Written and road-tested by experienced SAP R/3 users and trainers, this book saves typical SAP R/3 users time and trouble by providing them with the universal skills needed to work with any module of this complex software.

SAP R/3 can be used effectively by anyone who can perform a handful of simple procedures that are employed in nearly every SAP R/3 transaction. The authors explain these procedures in plain English, using illustrations and real-world examples.

After a brief explanation of the architecture and operation of SAP R/3, readers get step-by-step instruction in

  • Logging on and off, managing passwords, and customizing the SAP application window and screens
  • Navigating between screens with menu folders, transaction codes, and the menu bar
  • Setting up customized favorites folders with quick links to the initial screens of transactions and other useful resources
  • Understanding the four basic transaction types
  • Working on initial screens, including tips and techniques for entering codes, searching for codes, customizing initial screens, and using multiple selection screens and selection options
  • Customizing output reports with filters, sorts, sums, and display variants
  • Exporting output reports to Microsoft Excel and Word and e-mailing output reports to other SAP users

Practical and jargon-free, SAP R/3 for Everyone provides readers with the skills and confidence they need to efficiently conduct any business activity with SAP R/3.
