What you should know

Header and item views

List ® Header view


List ® Item view

There are two types of lists for each processing option: a header view with delivery header information and an item view that contains delivery item information. You can switch back and fourth between these views. The system may need to read the items from the database each time you switch views, which may take a little time.

Display variants

Settings ® Display variant ® Administration






Settings ® Color grouping

Display variants are maintained separately for header view, item view and for each processing option. Administration of display variants completely corresponds to the list viewer standard and is independent of Customizing. You can also configure user-specific display variants. You can designate one of the display variants as the default variant for the initial screen.

In the item view, you can make a setting that gives every other document a different background color, which increases the clarity of this screen. In other words, all items of one document would have the same background color and those in the following document would have a contrasting background. The color grouping is not a part of display variants, but it can be especially helpful if a list is sorted according to document and item numbers.

Displaying units of measure


The data in this list is automatically converted to the same unit of measure, which allows the tool to carry out its total function accurately. If you would like to choose which unit of measure the list appears in, you can enter a unit of measure on the selection screen. See also: Defining Further Selection Criteria.

Selecting documents for further processing


Further processing is only triggered if you select at least one delivery or item or if you place the cursor on a document line.

By using dialog-oriented subsequent functions (Display outbound deliveries, Change outbound deliveries, or the functions under Environment), you can cancel processing the selected documents after one document or skip an individual document if necessary. See also: Executing Subsequent Processing.

Selecting previously processed documents





Edit ® Deselect all

Documents that were processed previously are marked with a gray background. After the document is successfully or unsuccessfully processed in a subsequent function, the background changes to green or red, respectively.

You can cancel colored backgrounds and selection check marks with this function.

Refreshing the list


You can refresh the worklist at any time. The new data that is obtained is in accordance with the original selection criteria. Processed documents may disappear from the list as a result of this function.


When you refresh the list, all selections or markings in the list are deselected.



Depending on cursor placement, a double-click can trigger different activities.

  • Double-click on a delivery number: The transaction for changing the delivery appears.
  • Double-click on the number, name or location of the ship-to party, sold-to party, forwarding agent or vendor: A dialog box with the partner's address appears.
  • Double-click on a material number: The material master is displayed.
  • Double-click on a pick order: Pick order is displayed (only for WM pick orders).
  • Double-clicking on all other fields has the same result as choosing the document number.

Functions in the Environment Menu

The following is a short summary of the functions in the Environment menu:


What you should know

Display originals

The Display originals function displays the archived originals of the selected delivery documents (the IDoc linked to the delivery document, for example).

Display document status

The document status shows the current status of the selected deliveries or items. The item status appears in an item list; otherwise the header status is displayed.

Document flow

The document flow displays the header or item document flow, depending on the kind of list you were in when you chose this command.

Material master

The Material master function displays the material master for the materials in each delivery you selected. This function is only available in item lists. It is not active in the header view.

Customer master data

The Customer master data function (valid only for outbound deliveries) takes you to the change mode of the customer master for the customers in the documents you have selected.


Vendor master data is the corresponding function for inbound deliveries.

Assigned groups

You can use the Assigned groups function (only for outbound deliveries) to display the groups of deliveries that correspond to the outbound deliveries that are selected. You can display the group by double-clicking on the line that contains the group number. When you return to the original list of outbound deliveries, the selected deliveries that belong to a group now appear highlighted in color.

Lists for different types of selections

Generally, the lists for various selection types have a similar structure. There are two exceptions, however:
