A variant is a saved set of selection criteria for a query or the report generated by the query. If you specify a variant when starting a query, the system uses the values in the variant for the query selection criteria.

You enter variants on the selection screen and save them under any name. For each query, you can create any number of variants. To create a variant, select Start of the navigation path Goto Next navigation step Maintain Variants End of the navigation path.

With queries from the global query area you can create system variants. For more information, see Query Areas.

For more information about variants, see the appropriate sections in the ABAP User Manual or to the online documentation Getting Started with the SAP System.
