Table settings screen functionality

Hi Experts,

When we go to Settings System - User profile - own data, parameters tab there is a icon which resembles excel worksheet.

When we click on it, a screen by name table settings opens.

What is the use of table settings?

Thank you

    That icon you see in the top right-hand corner of a table is known by name Table control.

    Use the Table Settings function to change, in the table control, the individual basic table settings that are supplied with the system. This is particularly useful for tables where you do not need all the columns. You can use the mouse to drag & drop column positions and widths, or even make the column disappear.

    Save the changed table settings as a variant. The number of different variants you can create per table is not restricted.

    The first variant is called the basic setting; the SAP System defines this setting. You cannot delete the basic setting. you can delete the variants you define yourself.

    • Once you are in parameter tab, make the column width changes as per your requirement and click table control icon.

      In Variant field enter a name say ZKAM and click create button.

      Next click the administrator button and check mark whatever columns you want to be invisible.

      next click activate and click save button. Again click save button and you would notice the changes you made.
