How to exclude a field from FB60 screen under tab "Details"

There is a field XREF3 under "Details" tab. I want to make it invisible or display only under this tab and add it to the main FB60 screen. There is a BADI that allows me to add this field to the main sceeen. Is there a configuration transaction that I can use?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Vijay,

    Kindly use transaction code SHD0 for Hiding field or making it as display field only.

    You can use Field Status variant of the Vendor Recon Account for some of the fields. Additionally, you can also use SHD0 for the same.

    Refer the link below for SHD0 usage

      Hi vijay,

      the best way to activate/deactivate the fields is: change the Field Status group fields (G067), copy the standard FSG from OBC4 and make Z067, change the required fields to display/hide.

      These are client level settings which will effect to all other company codes. If you have multiple company codes in your client, it is best way to activate new fields through FSG.

    Hi Vijay,

    You can able to control these settings through fields status groups which is assigned to Recon GL accounts,which same are assigned in Vendor master data.

    Steps :- Go to transaction code :- OBC4

    Create one Z variant like Z001 ( Copied from G067 field status varaint) & suppress the XREF3 field from general data tab of Z001 FSG >

    Assign same FSG as Z001 in to all accounts payable recon accounts and check in FB60 whether those fields are suppress mode or not.

    • Hello Vijay,

      The best solution as already pointed by other experts is that creating a screen variant through SHD0 and assigning that to respective users.

      Process is:


      Input the T-code FB60

      Click on tab 3 "Screen variant"

      Input the T-code as "ZFB60"

      Program: SAPLFDCB

      Screen number : 50

      Click on create

      Then system takes you to the FB60 screen to input mandatory fields in initial screen. After that, click on details tab. Here, put the cursor on Ref key 1 / Ref key 2 / Ref key 3 which ever you wants to hide/display/required (for your requirement, it is "Invisible') and then press Enter.

      Now you see the field status screen opens with different options. Select them as you want and save it.

      While saving, system asks you "Package". Do not give any package but select the 'Local object" option from bottom of the window.

      Now, create an entry in tab 2 in SHD0 "Transaction variants" with screen variant ZFB60. Click on change button and then click on insert row + button. Then give ZFB60 and save it. Then,

      Activate it in first tab "Standard variant"

      You can now see the change in FB60. I just created for you and it is working fine for me. Ref key 1 is invisible at FB60.

      Let me know if you are still not able to make out
