Cannot Edit User Defined Value (FMS)

I have a customer whose previous partner set up several Formatted Searches. However, I'm unable to edit or disable any of them. I know the FMS exists due to the proper icon on the field:


However nothing happens when pressing Shift+F2, or clicking Tools>User-Defined Values. If the focus is on another field that has no FMS icon, Shift+F2 works as expected.

I am able to query the CSHS and OUQR tables to determine what query is being called and can probably alter the query in Query Manager. However, I want to remove the FMS. (Yes, I could theoretically neutralize the FMS by changing the query to a simple select statement, but that doesn't explain why I'm unable to edit the FMS.)

I appreciate any insight.

    Hi,

    Is it something to do with the authorization on Customization Tools.

    Kindly check.

    Dear Randy

    Does the form setting set the G/L account is inactive?

    What is the document that you show?

    Regards

    Hi,

    Please refer SAP note,

    2306746 - FMS defined in UDF is not removed when removing the UDF

    Thanks

    Thanks for your replies.

    Narayani--Nothing I can find in the Customization Tools applies here (other than UDV, which does nothing with I click on it. Settings is grayed out.

    Edmund--The GL Account is active in Form Settings. The document that I'm showing is the PO.

    Nagarajan--The note referenced is about problems with an FMS that has been created on a UDF and then the UDF subsequently deleted. This does not apply to my situation since the FMS was created on an SAP field.

    Any other insight?

    Dear Randy

    I also checked that PO cannot edit the GL account, but I have no idea how to assign the FMS in GL account field in this moments.

    Regards

    Hi,

    when system information and string information options in the view menu are selected and by hovering the mouse over the grid in the general tab of the purchase requisition form, the second screen shot tells about the purchase requisition detail table. May be the form is purchase requisition or some other screen called from within.

    Have you checked for any customization done on system form where form number is been assigned through SDK to a user defined form.

    Also by starting the add - ons, you can traverse through the modules to find out is there is any such user defined form.

    Was there a version or patch upgrade because they might have impacted also.

    Regards

    Narayani
