VL10A User specific layout

Hello,

the transaction VL10A is used in different distribution centers of our company and the users have different layout requirements.

The issue is that it seems not possible to create a user specific layout. The check box is greyed out on the layout saving screen.

Is there a way to change this behavior?

The SAP version used is ECC 6.0 Release 702.with AFS 605.

Thank you

Andreas

    Hi,

    user must be assigned authorization object "S_ALV_LAYO" activity "23" to create a user specific layout.

    • This solved my problem.

      Actually it is still not solved but I found out the reason:

      In the userexit right after this authority check the Variable cf_save_alv_variant is reset to 'X'.

      So this is no standard behavior.

      I now have to find out why this was changed in our company.

      Thank you very much for your help!

    I think SD_VARIANT_MAINTAIN influences VA* transactions, but not VL* in a standard system.

    It is possible to restrict layout saving in VL10* / VA* with custom coding (I have seen something similar at a customer). Check note 306882 - VL10: 'Save display variant' can be activated  - I know it is for an old version, but gives an idea how it can be achieved.

    • I tested SD_VARIANT_MAINTAIN and it does not work for VL10A.

      In some other transactions (like MB52 for example) there is the possibility for each individual user to define a User Layout which can also be used as default setting for this user only.

      Is there a way to activate this functionality in VL10A?

      I checked also the SAP Notes but they were not much helpful.

      Thanks

    Hi,

    In SU01 - User Profile - Maintain " SD_VARIANT_MAINTAIN"  as " X"  or "A" and try.
