SAP OM:How to Adjust Tab Pages in the Detail Area:Playing with SAP hierarchy framework :)

Hope this serves as useful guide for customizing  the Object Manager(Search and selection screen) and overview area/Detail area.

just for quickly refreshing our memory

The object manager, which is divided into an upper search area and a lower selection area, is comparable to a ‘permanent search help’. When you use Search Tools to carry out a search for objects, for example organizational units, positions, persons or cost centers, the system displays the search results in the selection area. You can process objects from this set of search results on the right side of the screen.Couresy SAP

In the overview area, the system displays the object in a hierarchical structure that you can define over an evaluation path. The hierarchical structure is visualised in a tree, where for each node, you can display in columns as much additional information as you like. Above the overview area there is an application toolbar with functions enabling forwards and backwards navigation and the period area for specifying a selection date or selection period for time-dependent structures.Couresy SAP

In the detail area the system displays an object with its detailed information. The detailed information is shown on tab pages, typically one infotype per tab page. Each tab page has a tab page header, which sums up the information on the tab page. You can define in tables which tab pages are displayed for an object type-Couresy SAP

The first need that needs to be checked and added if missing is in SU3 TCD the below parameters need to be added with X

OM_ARRAYTYPE_DISPLAY           X             OM:Display array type information for Customizing

OM_FRAM_SCEN_DISPLAY         X             OM: Display Hierarchy Framework Scenario for Customizing

OM_OBJM_SCEN_DISPLAY         X             OM: Display Object Manager Scenario for Customizing

OM_TABTYPE_DISPLAY X             OM: Display tab type information for Customizing


This is how PPOME TCD  account assignment Tab looks like before adding OM_TABTYPE_DISPLAY X


after adding the parameter OM_TABTYPE_DISPLAY as  X


Now lets go  play around  with amending  the description of TAB account assignment

Personnel Management-> Organizational Management-> Hierarchy Framework-> Integrate New Infotype-> Add Infotype as Tab Page in Detail Area-> Define Your Own Tab Pages

or SM30/31->Table: T77OMTABS

Choose scenario-> OME0             Organization and Staffing

Double click on Tab Page Definition

choose Tab Page as ACCNTNG-pl note this will appear only after adding the ‘OM_TABTYPE_DISPLAY       X’ in SU3


now before changes



After changes


PPOME TCD after changes looks like this


Happy Exploration
