When you create sorting options, you can either select or delete a certain field value after the sorting order is displayed.
This document describes how to create a user-defined sorting option in 'M3 File. Create Sorting Options' (CRS021), which can be opened directly or accessed by pressing F4 from the 'Sorting Option' field on the 'Sorting Order. Open' (CRS022/E) panel. User-defined sorting options can only have these values: U1–U9, V1–V9, or X1–X9.
By limiting the fields and values, the record will be displayed faster if no selection is made.
By exporting the configuration, you can save or transfer the sorting options. Use alternative 22='Export Configuration' on one or several sorting options and specify the file name and version number of the configuration. Locate the file by opening 'Configuration Data Jobs. Open' (MNS200). Use sorting order 4, then specify the file name and start date. Use alternative 20='Display XML file' to download the XML file as a compressed zip file. After import through the Business Engine Configuration Data tool, the sorting options are activated automatically."
Sorting options can also be accessed and managed through the API CRS021MI (Sorting option interface).
