Employee Birthdates on Dropdown Search LIst

When searching for employees using a dropdown in some HR transactions a standard view is used (M_PREMN) is used. The employee birthdate field is one of the columns in the view. We would like to hide this column. Does anyone know the best approach to hide this column. In the United States, birthdate has become a sensitive data field.

    Tim :

    You can re-configure this search help through DDIC by changing 'LPOS' (position in the hit list) to 0, and it will suppress birth-date field when data's retrieved.

    It's considered to be a SAP repaired, but low-risk of being overwritten by SAP changes ... .

    Our plan is to go to the dropdown view and alter the characteristic of the table column as suggested. This will not be implemented until May 2009, but the suggested fix does make sense and I assume will work. Thanks for your advise.
