Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to work center Business Analytics.
  2. Navigate to the view Design Reports.
  3. Use the key word Inventory Balance and search for the available report.
  4. You are able to see that the system displays reports with name Inventory Balance and Inventory Balance (deprecated).
  5. The same is visible for Inventory Balance Details report also.


SAP wanted to improve the performance footprint of the existing Inventory Balance (SCMINBU01_Q0001) and Inventory Balance Details (SCMINBU02_Q0001) report. Since customers would have already created custom reports on the above mentioned data sources, any changes would disrupt the reports created. Inorder to negate this issue SAP created new Data Source and Reports for Inventory balance.


You can continue to use the deprecated data sources, but there will be no new changes performed from SAP side for the deprecated data sources. The deprecated data sources will not be available for any changes for newly reported issues on them. SAP encourages the customers to make use of the new data source and reports for better performance of the Inventory Balance and Inventory Balance Details reports. Any further changes in the report and data sources will be performed only on the new data sources.
