    hi balu,

    Go to transaction code <b>SE11</b>, on the search help option enter your shlp name ZSHLP and click create.

    You`ll be navigated to a different screen and enter the description of your search help. On the selection method, give the table name from the which values are to be selected. On the right hand side you`d find a list box, drill down and opt for 'select display values immediately'.

    Below you`d find a table control screen with options for parameters. Enter the fieldname for which the search help is applicable and check the import and export checkboxes.

    Enter '1' for lpos.

    Save your search help and activate the same. Now you can include this search help to your table fields and screen fields.

    Mandatory requirement is that the field name which is provided in the parameter should have a data element attached to it.

    Hope this would serve the need.

    Cheers

    Alfred

    Name of a Search Help

    A search help is an object of the ABAP Dictionary with which input helps (F4 helps) can be defined.

    There are the following types of search helps:

    Elementary search helps implement a search path for determining the possible entries.

    Collective search helps contain several elementary search helps. A collective search help therefore provides several alternative search paths for possible entries.

    Append search helps can be used to enhance collective search helps delivered by SAP with customer-specific search paths without requiring a modification.

    The three components of the input help process described by a search help are the outer interface, the online behavior and the method of data collection.

    The outer interface is defined by specifying the interface parameters. They define the context information to be used in the input help process and the attributes to be sent to the screen by the input help.

    The search help attachment defines the field contents for parametrizing an import parameter and the fields of the input template in which the contents of the export parameters should be returned.

    The dialog behavior and data collection are defined differently for elementary search helps and collective search helps.

    The behavior of a search help can be made more flexible than usual with search help exits.
