Fundamental accounting information includes financial transaction data, human resource-specific data, inventory, planning, and sales data. This data comprises what is known as the General Ledger, Accounts Receivable, and Accounts Payable. Understanding how to navigate SAP's menu structure to accomplish the entry of this data is central to one's ability to effectively use SAP ERP in an organization. This course introduces the SAP ERP menu system relating to the required screens for managing data.
