    Hi Alimohamed,

    To achieve your requirement, follow these steps:

    • Create an append structure in VBAP table that will hold your custom field/s in transaction SE11.
    • Go to transaction SE51, and input the following values:
      • Program - SAPMV45A
      • Screen number - 4900
    • Select the Layout Editor radio button, then click Change.
    • In the Screen Painter's toolbox, click on the Input/Output field and then drag the table control to the last row.
    • Double click on the blank area, this should add an additional column in the table control. Name it similar to the custom field in the append structure you created in VBAP (ex. VBAP-ZFIELD). Adjust the attribute according to your requirement.
    • In the toolbox again, click on the text field. Drag and drop it at the top of the column you just previously added, this will serve as the column header. Give it a name and a text value.

    • Save and Activate the screen.

    You will be able to see the custom field in all the transactions that use screen 4900. For example, in VA01.

      I'm trying to do the same as you explained, but in another dynpro ( SAPLCOMK / 5120 ).

      When I check or activate the dynpro after adding the new field to the tablecontrol I'm getting the following error message:

      "Container description for control does not exist"

      Do you have any idea or clue about this message?

      Best regards.

    The only way I know you need access key. See note 862228, you need key because it is a modification note (read carefully symptoms). It explains how to add a field in dynpro 4900 (where you want to add the field).

    I hope this helps you
