Transaction variant not working


I am facing with this peculiar problem of transaction variant. I created a transaction variant as desired by my client for VA01 and activated the same. I checked the status in the transaction VA01 and there it showed that the transaction variant has been successfully applied. But when I check for the fields that I wanted to be made non editable or invisible the same was not reflected in the transaction. Now after trying enough like creating new transaction variants, adding new screen variants to the existing transaction variant, somehow it has started working. But now when I change the transaction variant, even after activating it, the changes in the variant are not reflected in the transaction. Old changes are being reflected. Please advise!

The reconstruction steps are as follows:

Creation of transaction variant - with processing.

Activating it.

Appreciate a quick response. Thanks in advance.

Note: It might be that I am going wrong somewhere, I would really appreciate if someone could send me a file containing screenshots on how to create and use transaction variants. My email ID is
