SAP Business Planning and Consolidation (SAP BPC) has two templates; Input Schedule templates and Report templates. Below is short comparison between input schedules and reports.
- Input Schedules - are used to write data to the database for base-level members. From business users point of view, it can be accessed through this path:
Planning & Consolidation tab → eSubmit → Open Schedule Library.
- Reports – whereas reports are used to retrieve requested data from the database into an Excel interface; thus, allowing business users to do analysis of the retrieved data. From business users point of view, reports can be accessed through this path:
Planning & Consolidation tab → eAnalyze → Open Report Library.
Note that both Input schedules and reports utilize the same formatting options and current view (from the action pane).
