What is field status group, what does it control?..

Answer / vinay

Field status group is a group configured in FSV (Field
Status Variant) to maintain field status for G/L accounts.

It controls the fields of the document posted to a
particular G/L Account where the group is assigned to.

Eg: If G/L Account 100001 is created and document is posted
to that particular account the fields of that account will
appear as specified in the FSV.

What is field status group, what does it control?..

Answer / geevidhya

Let us begin at the beginning.

Every BOX you see on your screen is a FIELD.

The STATUS of each such field can be one of the following:

1. Fields in which you MUST enter some data (usually you
see a tick mark in such fields). field status = REQUIRED

2. Fields in which you may or may not enter data. field
status = OPTIONAL

3. Fields which you can see some information already filled
up BUT you cannot enter anything nor change existing
information. field status = DISPLAY

4. Fields which may or not contain some information but
remain HIDDEN ( You may not be able to see the Field at all
on your screen ) field status = SUPPRESSED

You ,AS A CONSULTANT, can set up one of the field statusus
for EACH END USED based on his job requirement/ security
authorization allowed to him.

FIELD STATUS GROUP is a collection of all such fields
bundled up together as a group.


Field Status setting can be

1. at the MASTER LEVEL ( while creating, changing and
displaying Master data- Some end users are empowered to
handle master data only) and also. The priority of Field
Status is SUPPRESSED / DISPLAY / REQUIRED / OPTIONAL and in
that order.

2. at the TRANSACTION LEVEL ( while posting transactions -
some end users are empowered to post transactions only)

At the Master level, Field Status is set within the ACCOUNT
GROUP ( double click on the account group and you will see
for yourself). This level can be overridden by setting the
field status for the same field in the SCREEN LAY OUT
ACTIVITY. Both the statusus set are compared and the
priority rule of S D R O is applied for determining how the
field should be on the enduser's screen.

At the transaction level, Field Status is set through the
FIELD STATUS GROUP in the related MASTER RECORD and also in
the Posting Keys in the transaction. A similar comparison
of field statusus of a given field is made by SAP and the
priority rule of S R O applies for final determination of
how the field should behave on the enduser's screen. Please
note that there is no DISPLAY field status at the
transaction level.

As regards FIELD STATUS GROUP ( earlier I told you that a
field status group is a bundle of fields with preset field
statusus). The FIELD STATUS GROUP is Mapped to a variant
called Field Status variant ( which is just but a name) .
The Field Status variant is assigned to your company code.
By doing so and by capturing the Field Status Group in the
master record, you set one part of the field status for
your transactions. The other part for the field status is
set in the posting keys.

Hope you are kind of clear. Experiment for yourself and see
how a given field appears on your screen. You will get a
better idea.

Thanks

What is field status group, what does it control?..

Answer / vinay

A set of predefined field status is called field status
group. The reference given to this set of fields is called
field status variant. This field status vairant is
assigned to company code.

There are two types of fields status viz.,

1. Field status group: Controls fields of document entry.
These fields can be made supress, required and optional
only based on priority. These fields can also be
controlled by using posting key field status based on
supress,required and optional priority.

2. Account group field status: Controls fields of G/L
Account group only. G/L Accounts created under this group
will have only those fields which are maintained for that
group. These fields can be made supress,display,required
and optional. Priority being S,D,R,O.

3. Customer group field status: Controls fields of customer
master records of particular Customer group. In
otherwords, this maintains the subledger. These fields can
be made supress,display,required and optional. Priority
being S,D,R,O.

4. Vendor group field status: Controls fields of master
records of particular Vendor group. This maintains the
fields of subledger ie., the fields of vendor master
records. These fields can be made supress,display,required
and optional. Priority being S,D,R,O.

field every field has 3 options. 1). supressed,2)
REQUIRED,3).OPTIONAL.
sap Standard field status varient containes 41 field

for a particualr field in every account, we maintain
sever field status groups.

several field status rules. While creating FL
