SAP ERP HCM configuration tables can be big and it is difficult to get a list of the fields you are looking for. Here are two methods to filter the desired fields in any configuration table regardless of the submodule you are using.
Key Concept
You can filter view table entries in two ways. You can use selection By Contents after opening a table or you can check the Enter conditions field on the main screen of transaction code SM30.

SAP configuration is done in tables provided by SAP. You access these tables by using transaction code SM30 and entering the table name. Sometimes the table has hundreds of entries, making it complicated to look for specific entries. I will explain how to use table V_T554S to filter by absence types and conditions and how to use the Enter conditions field. You can use any of these steps for any view table in SAP ERP HCM.

I describe the contents option using the  examples of filtering the table for one absence type, filtering the table for multiple absence types, and filtering the table with multiple conditions. I then show how to use the Enter conditions field to filter for single and multiple absence types.
