    Hi Sudeep

    I don't believe these fields are readily available from any classes used in the BuPaSearch.

    You'll need to look at extending the BOL, refer to IC Webclient Cookbook.

    Hello Sudeep,

    The two fields partner type and partner external is availabel in BUILHEADER.So they will be available in the underlying DB tables as in BUT000.

    Here are the steps to enhance the Account Search.

    1. Create a Z structure ZCRMST_HEADER_SEARCH_BUIL by copying the BuilHeaderSearch structure CRMST_HEADER_SEARCH_BUIL.

    2. Add the two fields BP Type External Number to the structure


    3.Go to the path in spro

    CRM > CRM Cross applicationComponents >GenIL > Component Specific > Extend Object model for business partner an in the second folder define a name e.g. ZBuilHeaderSearch and assign the created structure ZCRMST_HEADER_SEARCH_BUIL new object, Select the object type as "Search Object" and enter the ROOT object as "BuilHeader.

    4.Create a new class e.g. ZL_BUIL_HEADER and make the class CL_BUIL_HEADER as a superclass of that.

    5.In the same path given above in spro in the first folder create an entry with Object as BuilHeader and class as ZL_BUIL_HEADER.

    5.Redefine the method GET_RESULT_TABLE method in ZL_BUIL_HEADER.

    6.Now you have to write your own filtering logic in this method.This method calles the TREX_BUPA_SEARCH with standard fields and I guess BP Tyep and External Number are not supported.

    So in this method you first call the Super Classes GET_RESULT_TABLE method(i.e. the GET_RESULT_TABLE methdo of the class CL_BUIL_HEADER) and then based on the result you do your own filtering logic for BP Type and External Number.

    Hope this helps.

    Please reward point if it helps.

    Thanks & Regards
