Layout management enables you to do the following:


To call layout management, choose Settings ® Layout ® Management.

A list of layouts appears.


The standard SAP layouts begin with a number.

Non-user-specific layouts (customer-specific standard layouts) begin with /.

User-specific layouts begin with a letter from A to Z.


Processing Lists using SAP List Viewer Functions

You can process the list of layouts using the following SAP List Viewer functions:

Displaying user-defined layouts / standard layouts

If user-defined layouts can be defined in the list (see: Saving Layouts), you can use User-Defined Layouts / Standard Layouts to switch between the display of the standard layout that is available to all users and the display of the user-defined layouts that are only available to you.

The display of the standard layouts includes the SAP standard layouts as well as the non-user-specific, client-specific layouts.

Deleting layouts

If you want to delete one or more layouts, select it/them and choose Delete layout or Edit ® Delete layout.

Setting initial layouts

If you want the list to display a particular layout instead of a basic list, click the row of the layout in the IL (Initial layout) column, or select the layout and choose Set initial layout or Edit ® Set initial layout.

Saving layouts

Layouts ® Save saves your changes to the list of layouts.

Importing layouts

With Import layouts, you can import one or more layouts from another client.

  1. Choose Environment ® Import layouts.
  2. Enter the source client from which the import should proceed. A list of all the standard layouts in the client appears.
  3. Select the desired layout. To select all the layouts, use Select All.
  4. Choose Import.

Transporting layouts

Layouts ® Transport transports standard layouts from the current system into the target system. The SAP System puts the selected layouts in a Customizing order.

  1. Select one or more standard layouts that you want to transport into another system. To select all the standard layouts, use Select All.
  2. Note

    You can only transport standard layouts (the standard layouts or client-specific layouts in the standard system). You cannot transport user-specific layouts.

  3. Choose Layouts ® Transport
  4. To create a new transport request, choose Create request, enter a name for the request, and save the request.
  5. To select an existing transport request, choose Own request and double-click on the desired request.

  6. Exit the dialog box with Continue.
  7. Transport the transport request into the target system using transport system functions. To do this, choose Utilities ® Requests (Organizer).
