SAP Reports are Programmes which are used to fetch data from SAP database under specified selection criteria and show in list viewer. Later you can view, download & take decisions appropriately.

There are many standard reports in SAP for various modules. For SD Module watchout TCode SD01. You can always code your own report they way you want in some cases.

3) ABAP Queries

These are the report which users can prepare without knowledge of the ABAP programming language to define and execute their own reports. Normally Functional Consultants use these ABAP query tool to create and run simple reports by themselves instead of coding by ABAPer. Its flexible and convinent. However you should be well thorough with different tables to map query and fetch data.
