  3. 3. Using Infoset Query, SAP Query and Quick Viewer SAP Query SAP Query is SAP’s tool to define and execute once own reports without knowing ABAP programming language. Purpose: The SAP query application is used to create reports not already contained in the default. It has been designed for users with little or no knowledge of the SAP programming language ABAP. SAP Query offer users a broad range of ways to define reports and create different types of reports such as basic list, statistics and ranked lists. These outputs can include lists on screens in table format, ALV grids, downloadable spreadsheets, and downloadable flat files. The whole process comprises of three steps. 1. Creation of user group 2. Creation of infoset 3. Creation of queries The transaction codes associated with ABAP Query are SQ01 - ABAP Query SQ02 - Infoset SQ03 - User group Creating User Group The technical definition of “User Groups” is a collection of SAP users who are grouped together. A user’s assignment to a user group determines which queries he or she can execute or maintain. Additionally, it designates which InfoSets the user can access. Basically, Query Groups permit users to create, modify, and execute reports in a certain area within R/3. Steps to create new user group: Navigate to the User Group Initial screen using transaction code SQ03. Type the user group name that you will be creating, ZUSER, and select the create button.
