  1. Hmmm….I keep seeing this same instruction on a bunch of websites. But in Solman SMSY, Menu option “System”, there is no option for “Other Configuration”. In fact, I’ve never heard of using the “System” menu option for any type of configuration change. I thought that menu item was generic for all SAP screens. What am I missing?
