AT selection-screen on ON HELP-REQUEST

Hi

What is normally done in the Selection Screen event :

AT selection-screen on ON HELP-REQUEST.

Normally pressing F1 helps gives Documentation present in Data Element assoicated with the field. Exactly in what cases would we be needing to use this event.

    Hi,

    <i>When the user presses F1 on the relevant field, the subsequent processing block is executed. You can thus implement a self-programmed help for the input/output fields of the selection screen. If the program contains such an event and the user presses F1, the system processes this rather than displaying the documentation of the Dictionary field - even if the report parameter or the selection option with LIKE or FOR points to a Dictionary field.</i>

    Hi,

    That event is used for search.

    ********************

    at selection-screen on value-request for p_file.

    call function 'F4_FILENAME'

    exporting

    field_name = 'p_file'

    importing

    file_name = p_file.

    ****************************

    If you code in the same manner in the selection screen you will able to search and select a file from your work station, so that it will be uploaded in SAP.

    I hope this will help you, if not plzzz be back.

    CHEERS

    If your problem is solved award points and close the thread.

    Hi Svetlin Rusev

    After pressing F1, when the user reads the explanation and wants to come back to the selection screen, how do i handle it. If i give LEAVE PROGRAM, it terminates. I have written the code in PAI of the Dialog screen.
