SAP Frontend GUI : Scripting issue



This came up when I was looking at some of the scripting option available in SAP GUI,

The difference that I have found can be noticed by:

1) Navigate to transaction SU01 (or any transaction really)

2) Click on the "Customize Local Layout" icon (right hand one)

3) Select Script Development Tools...

4) Select "Perform a hit test..." and click ok on the wizard

5) Hover over one of the data fields and the wizard will show its Type and Name

The issue here is that if check in the quality system name is the underlying database field name e.g. "USR01-BNAME" but when i check in the production system its showing BLANK

when I looked at the "Properties" of each system in the SAPLogon then Production uses "Group/Server Selection" while Quality uses "Custom Applicaton Server" I have created a link to Production using "Custom Application Server" and when I do that the field Names are visible.

Can anyone please explain why is this happenin:

1. is it got to do something with the the SAP LOGON settings ?

2. How can I disable the option of viewing the fields technical name in the quality or else enable them while using the option "Group/Server Selection" in logon propertied for production system.

Thanks in advance
