Fields for the Selection, Search, and Sort Functions
For selecting, searching, and sorting, you can determine which fields should be displayed for every function separately. You can also determine the sequence in which the fields appear on the selection screen, and you can enter the required field name.
All the specifications needed for these functions are already contained in the standard system. You can change or add to these predefined entries.
The figure below shows the selection screen for the open items and the possible selection fields (see figure 1 below). The second figure shows the specification as to which fields should be displayed for selection (see figure 2 below). An accounting clerk will often want to specify the gross amount or a document number for selection. That is why these fields were placed at the beginning of the field list.
