Whenever you use a transaction in the SAP system to process specific business transactions, it often makes sense to adjust processing flow to mirror these business activities. This can be done by hiding all information not pertinent to the business. More important information should be placed in a better position.
Creating a transaction variant alters the layout of the screen. Business processes delivered by SAP retain their integrity in any case.
Transaction variants are actually made up of a series of screen variants. The field values and settings for each screen in the transaction variant are stored in a screen variant.
You can create as many variants of a specific transaction as you like. These variants are started by entering a transaction code that you have selected. Your system administrator can assign your transaction codes to user menus. This allows the users in the departments that use your transaction to call the transaction directly. For more information, refer to the section entitled Creating Roles.
The functions of the transactions variants are supplemented by the integration of the tool GuiXT. Transactions can be enhanced using graphics, texts, and HTML pages. Screen fields can also be moved around on the screen, and important new menu functions can be added to the user interface or application toolbar in the form of pushbuttons.
