Procedure documentation Optimizing the Column Width  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


To adapt the column width to the entries in the columns regardless of the settings in the layout (see Changing Layouts), choose Settings ® Columns ® Optimize Width.


After optimizing the column width, the columns are displayed as narrowly as possible in order to include the maximum amount of information in the display screen.


If a list is already displayed with optimized column width in the standard system, you can alter the column width according to your requirements using Change layout. To revert to the optimized column width, choose Settings ® Columns ® Optimize Width.


Optimizing the column width can result in the text for a totals row or subtotals row not being output in the full length. To achieve full output of the text, you must increase the width of the column with Change layout.
