On Friday, April 25 members of the SAP Controlling Community posed their toughest SAP Controlling questions to a panel of SAP Controlling experts. Find out what some of their toughest questions were along with expert responses.
Here are three of the questions that were asked:

- What is the difference between a real order and a statistical order?
