An example for configuring material master :


I want to use the subscreen with Environmentally relevant and DG Indicator Profile fields in Purchasing view in the case of a special material type and only by certain users.


* In the technical information dialog box , screen number 2010 for the program SAPLMGD1 , Note : Users have to use their own programs to insert fields from their tables and their sunscreens for material masters.



* Create a new screen sequence , copy 21 to Z0  , configuration steps :


–> ZO screen sequence created

–> Check data screens


On columns , you can maintain screens :
