The user is attempting to rearrange the column field in the Value Help, for example, in the Sales Order.


  • SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  • Go to the question mark on the upper right of ByD.
  • Go to key user settings and start adaption mode
  • Open Sales Order WorkCenter and View Sales Orders
  • Search for Sales Order XXXXX
  • Click on edit
  • Go to Items Tab
  • Search for a position with item type "Product - consignment issue"
  • In tab Serial Number use the value help
  • Try editing the table which appears.

Rearrange the column fields, save the changes, and publish. Refresh and view the Value Help again; the changes are not applied.


The Changes made in the Value Help table (i.e., F4) will not be captured as "changes" in Adaptation Mode. It is a limitation.
