Creating dependent search helps

Hi all,

I want to assign a search help to a custom field. But the values to be shown in this value help are dependent on another standard field on the screen. So how can I pass this screen field value to the search help?

I have gone through this link, but it did not answer my question.

    Hi Krishna,

    Could you please describe the exact scenario where you need this? Seeing the screen and understanding the relationship between the fields would help in identifying a solution.

      If you can upgrade to SP3, then I think I may be able to offer a scripted solution for you that's not perfect but should do the job. Let me try to finalize my prototype, and get back to you.

      This will probably not work in SP2 though, unfortunately. And if you are already on SP3 then building a dropdown with an RFC may be an easier / cleaner solution. It depends on the actual search help and the dialog associated with the value selection what makes the most sense.
