SAP HCM P&F FPM - Search Help for Drop down list box


Dear Experts,


I have created an FPM based HCM form. Taking reference of theHCM Processes & Forms: Smart FPM F4! (or “how to step up your drop-down list game”)blog, i have created two fields (as part of my requirement) where i have to populate the City field based on State field.

For State field, i have written a method which populates the search help. When i select an entry, it immediately triggers an error though the selected entry is from the dropdown list only.

when i select any entry from the dropdown, the following screen appears with error 'The entered value is not on the list of valid values'

thus ending up with an error and the F4 search for next field (based on entry in this field) is not possible.

Please help.
