What Is R3 Thin Client?

Posted: 2016-08-30 Edited: 2017-12-21

R3 Thin Client is a client system that connects to SAP R/3 server and enables its users to engage SAP R/3 more efficiently as follows:

  • performing data entry, data inquiry, or executing business logic by working on screens presented by 14,000 function modules and BAPI
  • designing report templates for end users to read data sets directly from Oracle database server, bypassing R/3 ABAP server, and produce reports

    The report template design procedure is as simple as follows:

    1. coding SQL select command using R3 Thin Client client
    2. drawing report layout using mouse and keyboard using R3 Thin Client client
    3. specifying in R3 Thin Client the SQL parameters that will prompt end users' answer
    4. attaching report templates to menu items
    5. granting privileges
    With above jobs done, your global end users can start to click on menu items to produce reports in their local languages.
