below link might help you

what is your requirement.

is this what you want when a user executes MB51 then the options should be default one if so

enter tcode MB51

go to system-user profile-set data and execute.

when ever you execute MB51 all the time the same data will be there.

is this your requirement if not getback......

if it helps and solves your problem reward points and close the thread

You should create an user variant.

You can do it after running MB51, while list is displayng: go to SETTINGS->LAYOUT.

At the list of MB51 .

Goto Settings -> Layout -> Save .

( give a name / description . make sure user specific is checked )

After above step

Goto Settings -> Layout -> Admnistration. Here select the layout saved in previous step and click ( Shift + F8 ) "Define Default Setting " on application tool bar.

Next whenever this user runs MB51 this will be defaulted in the first screen of MB51 itself.

Hope this helps.

As stated in the above replies, I have tried to do the same but the default setting is applicable for all users and not a user specific.

Actually, what I am looking for is a default display layout for a group of users.

Is it possible to use parameter id in user profile to solve the issue.

I think you missed the step

Goto Settings -> Layout -> Save .

( give a name / description . <u><b>make sure user specific is checked )</b></u>

Variants can be user specific or global.

I am not aware of setting it based on user parameter.

Probably you can do this with custom code but not with MB51
