    The relevent documentation for "enhanced search" function is introduced in ABAP Dictionary of 7.40 release's help.
    Elementary Search Help -  ABAP Dictionary - SAP Library

    Please pay attention to the prerequisites part:


    In order to provide an enhanced search help, you            will need to take the following prerequisites into consideration:

    • SAP GUI version 7.30 for Windows Patch Level 5, recommended Patch Level 6
    • SAP NetWeaver 7.40 SP06
    • The fuzzy search is currently only supported for SAP HANA database on ABAP                  systems.

    • Hi Dan,

      From the screenshot, seems  "Do not show Enhanced search" has already been set by the registry right? Then the registry setting is working fine.
      Might be some problem with "Do not show Enhanced search" function?
      I would suggest to first update to the latest GUI patch, in case enhanced search is still showing up.
      It is better to create an incident with the detailed steps to reproduce the issue, our support consultant will then check further.

      Best Regards,

    What version of SAP GUI is this (I see the tag for gui_7.30) I am running 7300.2.4.1085 patch level 4 hotfix 2; and I do not have this under my options...and this has peeked my interest as I'm the TREX guy for my company!

    With SAP enhanced search, when you key partial information, e.g., part number, SAP will automatically search the complete information for you.

    I key in '527' in material field and with enhanced search, SAP will display material number which start with 527.
