I can debug code and potentially find them, but it takes forever and then the table I find might not even be the correct one. I'm also struggling to determine if there is a function module to return some of the data I am looking to use for a report versus select statements.
Once you've determined where the data you require is stored, then you can use "where used" on those tables to determine which, if any, function modules may be helpful.
I'm not aware of the availability of any cheat sheets for this information, although useful they would be. I'd expect when the product has matured somewhat, this information will become available somewhere on the Web.
