!https://manula.r.sizr.io/large/user/3588/img/bout-results-display.png!The results of the Bill Out-sort Analysis program are available upon the completion of the main program. After you run the Node5 Architecture program on-line, you are able to monitor the status of the program whilst it executes by repeatedly selecting the “Refresh” button in the application toolbar.

Select the “Refresh” button until the “Instance Status” becomes “Finished”. You can see how far the program has progressed via the “Comp” column, which represents the percentage complete. Important note: You are able to get to the above screen for a previously run version of this program (or a run that you did not start yourself) by navigating to the “Run History” in transaction /BTR/MDR. Once the program has reached 100% complete and a “Finished” status, you can select the row and press “Transform”. You will then be prompted with a further ability to restrict the output that is displayed:

The following options are now available to restrict the data further.

Output Options

• Display Summary – This display provides a summarized view of the tolerance bracket ranges with a graphical display and details options.
• Display Bill Outsort Details – This provides a tabular display of the bill out-sort details.

Advanced Options

• Derive current out-sorts status – If you are looking at the results of a past run of the program, then between the time at which the program originally ran and the time that you present the results may mean that the status of a particular billing out-sort has changed (e.g. to “released or reversed” by a user). Select this option if you would like the view the current status of billing out-sorts, a red light icon means the out-sort is still outstanding and a green light icon means the out-sort has been released/reversed.

After you are ready to proceed, select “Execute”. You will then be prompted with the selected results of the billing out-sort analysis output.

The output of the Billing Out-sorts Tolerance Analysis program is an ALV grid of data that represents the current state of all billing out-sorts found based upon user selection criteria. On the left of the screen is this list of billing out-sorts. On the right of the screen are the program execution parameters.

By default, the fields displayed in the grid are (from left to right):

• Status
Red light indicates the bill out-sort is still outstanding and a green light indicates that the out-sorts have been released/reversed since the report was run (this is only displayed if the ‘Derive Current Outsort Status’ checkbox is selected).
• Billing Document No.
Represents the Billing Document number that the billing out-sort belongs to.
• Contract
Represents the unique contract identifier.
• Company code
Represents the company code associated to the contract.
• Division
Represents the division the billing out-sort belongs to.
• Out-sorting Check group
Represents the out-sorting check that is either specified at the Contract level, or is derived from the installation time-slice that the contract is moved into and the associated Outsorting Check group of the Rate Category.
• Bill Validation
Represents the bill validation check defined for which the out-sort had failed.
• Tolerance
Represents the configured Tolerance amount.
• Amount Difference
Represents the amount difference above or below the tolerance.
• Deviation (%)
Represents the amount difference as a percentage above or below tolerance
You can add/remove into the ALV grid these fields via the standard ALV grid “Change Layout” option. You can also set a default layout according to your preferences so you do not need to change it each time you display the output of the billing out-sort tolerance analysis program.
Furthermore, you can select a particular column (e.g. Amount difference) and sort it from highest to lowest or vice versa. Additionally you can put a filter upon one or more fields in order to restrict what is displayed or search for a particular contract or billing document number with the standard search button in the grid.

You are able to export the data to Excel in order to run enhanced manipulation or analysis of the data.
