FICO Configuration

SAP FICO Configuration - Quick Overview and Basics
Here you will find basic tutorials for configuration SAP FICO. From my point of view, it is better to make a full SAP FICO Configuration from A to Z and then to dive into the details. In this way, you will start to understand much faster what you will see in the advanced books. These tutorials are part of my learning of SAP and my search for valuable materials which will help you to become a SAP FICO Consultant.

  1. Hi Emad

    Do you cover SAP-JVA (joint venture accounting)?. I am looking for material regarding configuration and set-up of SAP-JVA.. Now, I work with it at home on my server and I understand that the configuration is not available in the manuals, particularly the configuration for posting, methods, posting rules in combination with item types, manipulation rules etc.

    Kindly let me know if you also cover SAP-JVA


  2. Hi Tanev

    • Hi ET … Is there any difference between SAP R/3 ECC6 vs SAP S/4HANA configuration settings

      • Hi Seelam,

        I don’t know as I moved my professional orientation from ERP to BPC. S4/HANA has been simplified quite a lot, so I would expect differences.


      • The simple and straight forward answer is in the case of SAP R/3 ECC6 the database used will be Oracle and in the case of S4 HANA it is invariably a HANA Database. BTB HANA is a proprietory database of SAP. There are various changes in S4 Hana including the configuration.

  8. Thanks…..Emiliyan
