Overview
You can create a custom screen layout to remove some of the columns from displaying on a table screen. A table screen is one with the fields listed in a table such as the "Display Puchase Requisition: Item Overview" screen. This option is helpful if you don't need to enter or reference some of the fields on the screen. You also have the option of using the new layout in the current session only or making it the default layout every time you log on to SAP.
