Hi Orkun,

     If you say you want to develop report and do program ...whatever the Logistics you select in SAP ..for coding and all you have to learn  the Coding part of the SAP that is ABAP(Advanced Business Application Programming)  which is the core for all the programming don in SAP .

if you just interested in FI then you can find study materials in Google . also try to find any training centers or online

refer this.

Hi Orkun,

             ABAP is more of programming and you should have programming background to master over it. If you already have FI experience try to expand knowledge base both in FI & CO. A book by DAVID NOWAK on FICO configuring will help you  lot on this.

Hi Orkun,

        No i don;t suggest to go core in ABAP , u just need to no how to create report and  a little bit basic knowledge of DDIC(i.e., Database table creation) and also you can try earning BDC or LMW these two are data migration process .i.e., uploading data from non-SAP system to SAP system and vice versa.

But since your main focus is in SAP FI you better understand the concepts involved in FI more because FI indeed is a vast subject in SAP.

Hope you understood reward if its been helpfull.

Thank You & Regards.

Hi Orkun,

What ever you are now is a good start for learning SAP FI and Coding on ABAP.

You have got some business knowledge first and later when you want to learn SAP FI and ABAP you can co-relate them very easily.

As you also know the Hottest Top Module in SAP Modules are many But FI Holds the Rank1.

Then HCM and then CRM.

I would suggest you to go to the nearest Educational partner of SAP and do a Certification on FI which will give a bright future

You need to kick start and do some hardwork in reading for completing the certification. Once you complete your certification you can get a job just like that. Because FI and CO are very Hot Modules.

Hope this helps.

Orkun,

if you post here, you qualification like your basic degree or diploma, any local or international certification like Chartered accountant, etc, how many years you have been end user

of SAP FI,

it would be more easier to guide you.

but basically take this.

ABAP is used to program the SAP system (now a days JAVA is also used regularly)

1.if u just want to create reports then, its fine an SAP consultant can do for your and you can use it

2 but if ur thinking that you want to develop sap fi reports for others, then you must learn ABAP programming, its like C programming or java ( its not the same its just ex:) 

if you hate programing, coding and looking into very large codes of like, avoid ABAP

3. if you want to help clients on implementing SAP FI to solve their financial problems etc you can become SAP FI consultant, you need to join SAP authorized training in turkey check with www.sap.com education and training section.
