Overview
You can create a list of your frequently used values for a field instead of having the entire Matchcode list displayed. This personal list will be displayed whenever you use the Matchcode button for the field.

For example, you can create a personal matchcode list for the Material group field on the "Create: Purchase Requisition: Initial Screen." (From the SAP User Menu screen follow the navigation path: User Menu >> Role ZMIT >> Purchasing >> Requisitions >> Create a Requisition or use the transaction code: /nme51.)
