Changing the field name of a standard SAP screen

Is the Visual Configuration tool the way to go? Expert Srini Katta sheds light on the matter.

I am new to SAP. I heard that we could change the field name of a standard SAP screen using the Visual Configuration...

tool. How can I change the name of a field in a standard SAP screen?

Visual Configuration tool is for changing the field and screen names, hiding the screens and removing the screen in the Business Partner. This is a done via configuration. Please check under Business Partners in IMG. You have to use the screen configurator to change the look and feel of transaction screens. You can use Easy Enhancement (EEWB) Workbench to add new fields. The screen configurator and EEWB requires technical knowledge and experience.
