How to add a column with an ID that is part of a cell?


Hello, i'm not sure how to explain my question so im' gonna do my best. Hope you could help me.

I created a query using cell of my infobjects brings an account number. However, as this is part of a structure, in the Properties, Display tab I do not have the option of 'Display as' and I really need a column that shows the 'KEY' of that object.

The easiest way I found was to concatenate the Key (which is the actual account number ######) to the description and show it as part of the name of that cell...but the user needs an extra column showing just the number. I thought that a routine could help me, maybe creating an exit variable that extracts the Key of the InfoObject and add it as a Selection of the Structure.

I've been thinking about this for two days and I can not find another option...and I am not sure that my given option is viable.

If someone could help me I'd really appreciate it.
