How to make SAP remember last entered values and store the field history when entering spacebar or backspace?

What if you do not get any values for all the input fields. Go to Options(Alt + F12) and select options and then go to tab ‘Local Data’. In history, put a tick on ‘On’.

Here is the path and parameters to set up the space bar history in SAP.




What if you have SAP History on and still doesn’t show values?
