    many screen shots but missed to explain the technical settings for object specific customizing.

    there are so many fields….especially the archiving file size and number of objects is subject to many questions here. Why are the numbers set like in your screen?

    Further the variant buttons are very important and they are often misunderstood and cause some confusion after the customizing is transported
