Optional Input Field with Value Help in ALV

Hi everybody,

I'm currently facing the following problem:

I've got an ALV in input mode. Certain fields are optional, but they have a value help connected to them. So I want to have the following behaviour: If the user doesn't input anything in this cell, no error should occur. But if the user enteres a value, it should be checked againts the value table.

The value SPACE is not part of the value table (and shouldn't be), thus I always get an error message from ALV.

Is there any solution for this problem without programming each input check by myself? In the field catalog I didn't find a field for this purpose.

Thanks a lot,

    Hi Sacha,

    Why don't you use the event DATA_CHANGED_FINISHED to do the test on the value of the fields. If the value is not correct you can message the user...

    Do you see my point ?

    If I did help you don't forget the reward!
