Adjusting Table Control Settings

SAP Help

This document explains how the user can adjust the table control settings to allow them to view the most important fields for their business requirements.

The image below show the Operation Overview tab within a maintenance work order. The operations are displayed in an ABAP function called a table control.

The user has the ability to change the following in a table control:

  • Change the column sequence
  • Change the column width

Example: the user wants to see the schedule dates rather than page to the right to find them. Here is the process to follow:




Rearrange the table control columns as required:


Click the configuration button () in the top right-hand corner of the table control.


This will now display a popup screen as follows:


Enter a variant name and press the CREATE button. Then press the SAVE button


The values should now look like this:


Now each time you enter this screen you should be presented with the fields  in the order you determined above.


Note: you can create many variants if required, but only one can be your default setting.
