This manual, written with the objective of providing detailed training to both, consultants and users goes deep into the subject from initial configurations to setting up the Income Statement and Balance Sheet of the company. The integration points of Finance with Purchasing/Inventory and Shipping/Billing are explained in detail and the chapters marked clearly if it is a Configuration (C) or Transaction (U) or both. Since most of the book has been written in standard SAP, once a company code is set up along with some basic configurations defined in the first few pages, a SAP user, if so desires, can stay only with the areas marked ‘U’ by passing the ‘C’ since not everything in standard SAP depends on configurations. Consultants or to-be consultants, of course, need to understand both sides of SAP. The effects of changes done in configuration are immediately followed by their effect on the transactions, thereby making the learning relational in real time for better understanding. From the user’s perspective, not much from the subject has been left out in writing this manual and every effort has been taken to keep it relevant to the Corporate Finance functions of day to day working on SAP in an orderly flow. This manual is really a result of many years of training both consultants, and business users. The author appreciates your comments and suggestions on improving this book.
