Hi experts,

I have a dynamic selection screen with two blocks. In the first block i get the green field with a 'X' in it when I enter '*', but in the second block i get @i when I use the * in the selection fields.

Can someone tell me why this is?

Thanks,

Martin

Without a simplified code example that demonstrates the behavior it is rather difficult to answer that question.

See the documentation for an explanation of wildcards in SELECT-OPTIONS.

Hi Martin,
I don't understand what @i means? Actually you can use wild cards only in low(first block) field of the select-options(that means "Include/Exclude Pattern([X] / ]X[)"), not in high(second block).

I found some information about this in the SAP Help Doc., maybe this can give you an idea.

Thanks,

Without a screen-shot, my guess is that this the problem I've seen, where SAPGui renders an icon incorrectly. I.e. not an ABAP issue.
