    This article needs to be fleshed out to be useful. Let's take step one for example. SE11 is not explained. View is not explained. How to create a view is not explained. When creating the View you have to select the View type, and this is not explained. After confirming the View type the user brought to the Maintain View page, this is not explained. You also have to assign a package. Again not explained.

    Disagree with above comment. I found this very useful.  If you need help creating a view in SE11 look that up, it's a different procedure (also is a simple step, covered in BC400, intro to ABAP programming)
