If you enter cost center groups and cost element groups, they must have already been set up. If they contain subtotals, hierarchy nodes should be created within the groups. Each hierarchy node then subtotals in this report.

You can run multiple context-sensitive reports from this SAP controlling cost center report. For example, when you position the cursor on a cell for planned costs, only the reports that contain planned costs list data. If you select a cell for planned costs and run a report that only contains actual data, no data lists.

The SAP system displays four columns for all sections of the report, including actual postings, planned data, and a calculation of the variance between the two, both as an absolute and as a percentage value (calculated by dividing the actual data by the planned).

By double-clicking on any subtotals in the report, the detail that makes up each subtotal can either be hidden or displayed. For example, double-clicking on the Internal activities line will hide the cost element detail. To display this detail again, double-click on this line.
