Analysis Variant

Use

To carry out a Table Analysis you always need an analysis variant. This relates to only one table and describes which fields are to be analyzed.

Depending on the usage type there are two kinds of analysis variant available:

·        To create an analysis variant for future table analyses, use transaction TAANA_AV. The definition of this variant is saved on the database, and can be used for future table analyses.

·        To create an ad hoc analysis variant for currently scheduled table analyses, use transaction TAANA. The definition of this variant is not saved on the database, and so is only available for the table analysis that you are currently scheduling.
