Drop-down selection for freetext for field on EQ


Hello together,

in order to have the field entries on equipment fields like "manufacturer" (HERST) or "model number" (TYPBZ)

more harmonized, we would like to offer the users a pre-defined list of manufactuerers or models to choose from.

Currently the entries differ a lot, as each user has his/her own writing-style to enter the manufacturer/model.

The optimum solution would be, that the list of available entries is depending on the entry in field "object type" (EQART).

I've found also an old thread on this topic from 2007 (title: Dropdown in Manufacturer field in Equipment Master), which propose

some user exists. As the thread is 6 yrs old, I thought there are new possibilities/solutions (without development - maybe in customizing).

Does anyone has some ideas? If a user exit or development with a few custom tables is not too much effort, it would also be ok (if it's the last option).
