Hide fields in Supplier search

Dear experts,

We have SRM Extended Clasic Scenario 713.

with current setup we have in our Supplier search from Professional SC some search fields that are confusing and not used by us.

Is there a way to hide it from search criteria? i know they are standard, however we don't want to permanently remove those columns. We just want to move those columns, we need to hide the fields highlighted with red.

If there is any way can you please inform step by step how to do so?

Thank you in advance for your support.

    Dear Giorgian,

    There are a couple of options to hide these fields. At user level, you can hide it by right clicking the field and by clicking Hide button. To hide it at admin level, follow the steps below:

    1. Execute transaction SE11.
    2. Display Search Help BBP_BUPA_VENDOR.
    3. Go into Edit mode.
    4. Make the value of column SPos blank for those parameters that are not necessary.
    5. Save and activate the changes.

    In addition, you can also hide these fields dynamically by modifying the Search Help exit BBP_F4IF_SHLP_EXIT_VENDOR_EXP. In this FM, you can delete the parameters from table shlp-fielddescr[] in the PRESEL step:

    * STEP PRESEL  (Enter selection conditions)   
    IF callcontrol-step = 'PRESEL'.

    In this IF statement, if you delete the parameters from the mentioned table, it won't appear on the UI.

    Best regards,

    Dear Daniel,

    Thank you for your reply.

    i am interested in the Admin option.

    I entered SE11--> BBP_BUPA_VENDOR.-->edit mode ( requires Access key, provided by our basis ) but i have this screen, can you help me identify step 4, i could not find the column "value" either i do not have sufficient rights or i am missing something, this is my screen.

    Hello Giorgian,

    as written by Daniel, BBP_BUPA_VENDOR is the search-help, not a data element:

    If SPos has value '0', field will not be used as search parameter: you will need an access key to do it.

    So, from my point of view, better way is to make an enhancement in FM BBP_F4IF_SHLP_EXIT_VENDOR_EXP.

    • Dear all, thank you for your help, we have identified and solved the issue.

      with table wdDoModifyView we could modify the view and rearranging UI elements.

      By adding new lines to hide the buttons we did not need and search criteria is now more simplified.

      Was a bit of work to manually add for each line but worth the effort
