Messages

System messages appear in the Status bar at the bottom of R/3 screens. As another option, messages can also be customized to display in a dialog box (pop-up window), if desired. If this option is chosen, the messages will display in the Status bar, as well as in a dialog box. Messages must be acknowledged before proceeding.

Changing Messages to Display in Dialog Boxes

1. Click on the Customizing of local layout button on the Standard Toolbar.

Note: Mac users do not have the Customizing of local layout button and are not able to use this function.

Note: Also, the Customizing of local layout button can be used to select Hardcopy, which prints the screen displayed at the time. There are more efficient ways to print Journal Entry transactions and financial reports; they are covered in the appropriate Journal Entry and Financial Reporting user guides.

3. Click on the Options tab in the Options window.

4. Click in the check box for the following options in the “Messages” section:

Dialog box at succes (sic) message

Dialog box at warning message

Dialog box at error message

5. Click the Apply button (if highlighted) and then the OK button.

Note: Messages will now be displayed in both a dialog box ( pop-up window) and the Status toolbar.
