I am little unclear about what your requirement is exactly. But here is the check list to be looked into while preparing a Z-Report.

1. First of all, check if there is any Standard Report exist with

your Functional Consultant.

2. If a Z-Report is required, make sure to get all the

Requirements regarding the Selection-Screen, Layout, Mode

of Execution (Online or Batch), Tables to be accessed.

3. Keep in mind the Performance Issues (avoiding SELECT *)

avoiding nested LOOPs, avoiding SELECT inside the LOOP.

4. Whether to go for Classical / ALV Reporting.

5. Usage of Data, i.e., the Number of Tables and the Number

of Records stored in the Internal Tables.

6. Any Database update is required.

Hope it was helpful.

Thanks and Regards,
