There are some tools in FI like Report painter/writer, by using them functional people can develop reports/ reprot group ( for ex: using txn GR51).

If there alreday existing Z report group. Can we modify it?

If so will it b done by Functional guys it self? or Abapers needed?

if abapers needed, in which scenario it requires abaper's help?

if abaper want to modify it, how can he do it?

Any one can change or edit the object developed, it may be either Report Painter/Writer.

It can be done by ABAPer and also the Functional people.

All you need is necessary authorization to edit the object.

You mean that If Abaper is having the knowledge of Report writer/painter..then he can able to modify that?

Or any just having technical skill of ABAP reports can do it?

Everything in Report Painter/Writer can be handled by Functional consultant

As such there is no need of ABAP Developer for it.

You can't change the Existing Group

Where as you can create your own group and use.

see the doc

Report Writer functions can be accessed from within the Report Painter.

The difference lies in the GUI of the report painter.
