Remove PS Info System pop-up for Database Profile

This is a small tip about how to improve a user interface within PS Info System.

Everyone who ever run PS standard reports remembers a pop-up window to select a PS Info Profile.  There is no save button and even though most of users need the same profile, they have to spend time again and again by selecting the same value from the drop-down list:

It can be solved by maintaining two user parameters PDB and PFL in SU3 transaction:

In case you wonder how to find the names of parameters it can be done in two simple steps directly from the original pop-up window.  First press F1 help button on the Database Profile field:

Next, click on the technical information icon and take a note of the Parameter ID:

Thank you for reading and hope you liked it.

      Thank you for positive feedback!  This is something rather basic, but still a quick win on user interface.

      Great post Paulo.

      This technique applies all over SAP for many fields such as plant, company code, etc.

      Click F1 on a field for help then click on the technical help (hammer and wrench icon).  Look for the Parameter ID (PID) if one is available it will be there.

      Thank you very much Paulo.
      You saved me a lot of time figuring out why things work differently in Development as in Production.
