When transactions such as PA30 and PA20 or PPOSE/PPOME are run for a long hit list of employees, it will cause significant delays. Search history should be reset or delete and thus quicken the loading of the transaction.
To hide the selected hit list and avoid the problem you could follow the steps below:
1. Open PA30/PA20
- Then go to Search Term in Object manager of the screen
If there are any entries they have to be deleted.
In the screenshot below we have (*) in search term.
(*) means ‘’all’’ and when transaction is run with such a selection and in case of a huge organization this should cause load with delay.
Press Enter after entries are deleted.
- Open any PN and after that exit from the transaction
When the transaction is run again, the search will not produce any hits. You can select a shorter list of employees, using Collective Search help.
If a large hit list is collected again, you can remove it in advance before closing the transaction. In this way you will avoid waiting the next time you run PA30/PA20.
- If a consultant have to reset or delete the search history and thus quicken the loading of the transaction, follow the steps below:
Go to SE38 and run report RH_DELETE_OM_USER_SETTINGS, where first of all read the documentation:
Then execute the program, select a user, choose desired options and run:
To clear only the Hit List select just the upper option – Delete search variants.
A message confirming the settings have been deleted will be displayed.
