Hi Sravanthi

greetings.

To enable text formatting we use SAP script. In this Forms are used.

on the other hand Reports are used to display data....in the format prescribed by the business purpose.

Report is basically a program which extracts the data from the database tables based on some inputs and gives the output as a list.

Report are classified as Classical Reports, Interactive Reports and ALV Report.

Classical Report is a normal report which just displays the output.User cannot interact with that report.

Interactive Report is nothing but, a user can interacte with the report.After a basic list is displayed, user can click on some field on the list which generates a secondary list giving the necessary information relevant to that field.

ALV Report is to provide users with a consistent, user friendly and functional method of manipulating the data, which appears on report lists. ALV provides more advantages than the normal report.

SAP scripts is a word processing tool of SAP which has the following components: Standard text. It is like a standard normal documents. Layout sets. - Layout set consists of the following components: Windows and pages, Paragraph formats, Character formats. Creating forms in the R/3 system. Every layout set consists of Header, paragraph, and character string. ABAP/4 program.

The main difference between Script and Report is that Scripts can't be editable means they are static whereas Reports can be editable during the runtime.

so we can take input from the user and make changes at rum time in Reporting

Report is a program that reads the data from database ,

manipulates the data & outputs the processed data on to the

screen and printer in a specific format.

SAP Script is the word processing tool of SAP.

often there are instances where an o/p from a SAP prg is

required on a physical paper in a pre-designed format.Using

normal ABAP code this is not possible.Instead SAP provides

an object called SAPScripts to generate such kind of

documents which can contain logos, tables and other objects

and which can look like pre-printed document.

reward points if useful
