Sales Documents Item View Table Control

Have you ever opened a sales document and wished your quantity field was adjacent to the material field? or the plant field was visible on the screen and not hidden on column xyz. Well the layout of these columns may be controlled by the user: you can change the table control of a sales document item view. For example you can drag columns into different positions on the table. You can also save the view of the columns as a user specific variant.

But did you know that you can also set a system/client specific variant for all users. You can do this by changing the columns and selecting the small icon called “configuration” on the top right hand side of the items list. Then select “Administrator” then select “Activate“. This controls Program SAPMV45A and Control TCTRL_U_ERF_AUFT.

Note to do this you must have the following authorization – authorization object ‘S_ADMI_FCD

    Hi… When I do this, the variant I create simply overrides the ‘Basic Settings’ variant for all other users and is not visible for them.

    What I need to do is for the variant to become visible alongside the standard ‘Basic Settings’ one so that anyone can choose which variant to use or not use.

    In my case, several countries are using the same production client and I do not which to affect everyone regardless but only those who choose to use the variant I create.

    How can we do this?

    Thanks for your help!
