Search Help for a screen field

Hi everyone,

I want to make a search help from 2 or 3 different z tables.

I have been searching the internet but couldn't understand how to combine these fields in a collective search help.

it would be great if you could tell me some hint.

    Are you able to define an help view in SE11 (are there foreign key relations between required fields)

    • Yes, create a help view and a search help on this view.
    • No, you could create a search help on one of the table (the more selective one) or even a structure, and use some search help exit to fill/select records data into the internal table displayed by the search help.



    PS: For search help exit, look with search tool for documents as Controlling/Manipulating data of Search Help using search help Exit

    Hello Cem,

    Can you please elaborate the requirement and its business relevance.

    I don't understand why it needs to look into three different table for the same data element?

    Hi Cem,

    You need first create 2 or 3 individual search help. Then SE11->Search help->choose collective SH.

    Put those 2 or 3 individual search help in 'Included SH' tab.

    • Hi,

      i have already created a collective search but those two search helps work separetely from each other.

      For example if i search by customer name th first ones gives me only the receipt number that is related to that customer name but the other search help gives any receipt number.

      I think what i need to do is that i populate related data to an internal table and then show as search help.However i dont knoe how to do it with a screen field.

      any ideas?
