SAP Screen Personas - Enjoy transactions


Has anyone got experience with transactions like ME51N (create purchase requisition)?

I'm having difficulty with the various subscreen open/close states, i.e. getting them to stay open, and also simply merging fields from various tabs in the item subscreen. It won't seem to let me refresh the subscreen after I've enabled caching of the tabs.

I've read a blog that states Personas plays nicely with enjoy transactions, but so far thats not my experience.

any tips and tricks would be great thanks!

    Hi Neil,

    Could you please show in a video what you did that caused this behavior? I am not fully sure I understand the problem, yet.

    • Sushant,

      I'm having a problem with this transaction as well. I've done as you said, with adding the control ID overwrite logic. To Me, It seems like the tabs aren't caching correctly. I'm trying only to show the 'Account Assignment' tab and the 'Valuation' Tab. From what I can tell, they are two different 'screens', and I'm not sure what the problem is. It will constantly freeze up on me, and it refuses to hide the Material Data tab, even though I have told it to do so.

      I can provide a video if needed.

    Dear all!

    I'm still having problems with ME51n and hoping to get some help here....

    I've started collecting experience with Personas cause we think about simplifying this purchse requisition screen in that way to bring only the needed fields on 1 screen.

    But I get some irritations/ problems - to me Personas doesn't work properly with this transaction.

    Biggest problem are the expanding/ collapsing buttons. I would need information from Header text area, ALV-position entering area and position details as well. Never mind what I'm doing - the header text area is beeing thrown away by personas...

    I nearly read every post I could find and added these settings according to SAP Note 1999747 to the /PERSOS/ADMIN_UI - SAP-Dynpro Personas Administration - Maintain Control Id Overwrite Logic (and re-created a new flavor after having done this):

    But ME51n-flavor is still getting confused with the screens - can anybody tell me I am missing something?

    This is how my new flavor looks like:

    thank you, Jens
