Query Related to Combo Box.


Can we show only selective values in Combo Box ?

For example I am having Sales Order . In this form i am having Sequence Code as combo Box.

In this Combo box i am having values as :








Now , i want to show only 0607 and 0608.

How can i achieve this thing ?

Is is possible by formated search..... ?

or We must have to use SDK code only ?

please provide some solution for this.

Regards ,

    Hi Ganesh,

    It's not possible to filter SBO standard Combo boxes, by any means (SDK included). With the SDK you can create a new combobox and stick it over the system combobox and have your selected values in there. But you won't be able to alter a system combo box.

    As a workaround it might be possible to put a FS to that field. Then you could instruct the user to use FS instead of the combo to select the value.

    If you use this workaround then you might also want to change the label of that field to remind the user to use Shift-F2.

    • Hi Ganesh,

      The above 2 options are the only solutions for this issue. The Add-On is the most secure, but the formatted search would be the cheapest and quickest to implement.

      Just remember SAP B1 is the owner of the application, they supply functionality which they deem appropriate. There might be a business rule for some company that is the direct opposite of your requirement. That's why they don't "tie the system down". That's why you've got tools like the SDK and formatted searches and such.

      If you do feel you've got a strong case, you can submit a DRQ and see what the official SAP responce is...
