Changing the screen layout of transaction MIRO

Enjoy transactions such as FB50 and FB60 normally give you the option of moving, hiding and changing the sequence of columns by using the “Configuration” button (this is the button that resides at the top of the right scroll bar. However, with transaction MIRO (for posting a vendor invoice through Logistics Invoice verification) there is no direct option to perform this function. This is especially noticeable when you use a particular layout (which can be selected in the right part of the MIRO screen) which has been pre-configured by the system.

For example if you go to the MIRO screen and select the layout “PO – Jurisdiction Code”, you will see that a column called “Smart Number” is displayed in the screen. This column is pretty wide, and takes up a lot of space which could be used to display the more relevant columns (this is, of course if you do not need the “Smart Number” column). You therefore would need to hide this column anytime you go to the MIRO transaction and select the “PO – Jurisdiction Code” layout.

To do this, you can go to the configuration menu path: Materials Management -> Logistics Invoice verification -> Incoming Invoice -> Maintain Item List Variants (alternatively you can go to the transaction “OLMRLIST”). Enter the transaction code “MIRO” and drop-down in the Screen Variant field in order to locate the relevant screen variant. Once the drop-down pop-up box is displayed, enter Program “SAPLMR1M” and hit the “Enter” key. You will see that the screen variants displayed correspond with the layouts that exist in transaction MIRO. You can then double-click on “11_6310 – PO- Jurisdiction Code” and this will take you back to the original screen. You can then click on the “Change” button and this will take you to the “Change Screen Variant” screen. Look for the “Smart Number” line and check the box in the “Invisible” column and save the variant. The next time you go to transaction MIRO and select the layout PO –Jurisdiction Code” you will see that the “Smart Number” column is not displayed.

Note that, if you want to create your own layout in MIRO, you would need to go to configuration menu path: Materials Management -> Logistics Invoice verification -> Incoming Invoice -> Aggregation -> Maintain Variants for Aggregation List (alternatively you can go to the transaction “OLMRVERDLIST”). An easy way to create the new variant is by copying an existing one and making the relevant changes. Click on the copy icon, enter the reference screen variant, e.g. “11_6310” and enter the new screen variant. When you hit the “Enter” key the system will ask you to enter a Development Package (if you do not know this you can ask your Basis team). Enter the relevant Development package (and Workbench transport if prompted) and save the entries. You will then be taken back to the original screen, where you can enter transaction “MIRO” and click on the “Change Icon”, make the necessary changes (make sure you change the “Screen variant short txt” to something appropriate) and click on “Save”.

The next time you go to transaction MIRO and drop-down in the “Layout” field you will see that your new layout is displayed and selectable.
