9.1 Resources for a Newbie?



I'm very new to JDE. I've been working in it for under a month.

I was wondering if anyone could recommend some good material with beginner items?

I'm trying to find a report that gives me work order variances and allows me to set a timeframe (date range). I was looking at R31804 and it seems to be what I'm looking for, but I've yet to find a way I can run it as a user.

My company has the report set to run nightly, but it doesn't help me if I want to find a month's worth of variances by work order. Am I looking at this the wrong way? Should I be more focused on finding the proper G/L account my variances are connected to and going about it that way?

Sorry if this is a really dumb question, I've been trying to Google, but been getting more advanced topics than what I am looking for.

Thank you for your time,
