The line layout defines which fields are displayed in which columns. The standard system contains a series of pre-defined line layout variants. To define your own line layout variant, see the Implementation Guide for Financial Accounting. You can define a default line layout in the user master record. To do this, see Setting Editing Options for Open Item Processing


To select a different line layout, proceed as follows:

  1. On the Process open items screen, choose Settings ® Line layout.
  2. The system displays the line layout variants available.

  3. Select a line layout.


The system then changes the line layout variant and displays the same open items with the new line layout.


If you process vendor invoices with withholding tax, you can display the withholding tax for each open item, and the total withholding tax for all open items.

To process withholding tax, from the Process open items screen, select the Withhldg tax tab.
