F1 Help documentation


I have a checkbox using parameters statement on selection screen.I need to create Help documentation on F1.

Can anyone tell me how to do that.I read one of the thread and tried the goto->doc->data elem doc. on screen painter.but since the screen is not custom screen I get a warning as

"Selection Screen:Report generation makes changes ineffective". So I am not sure if i can do the documentation on the screen painter.Let me know the other way of doing.

    Hi Suganya,

    PARAMETERS xyz type zxyz.

    Define a data element with the name ZXYZ. For this data element, use the domain XFELD or FLAG or create your own domain as copy of XFELD or FLAG. In the data element, create a documentation. This will be shown when you press F1 on the parameter with this type.

    This is fully SAP standard compliant. You may translate it if required for different logon language.

    Hi Suganya,

    Do it like this.


    it_ef type standard table of TABLE_LINE,

    it_hl type standard table of tline,

    ws_help_infos type help_info.

    Parameters: p_help as checkbox.

    at selection-screen on help-request for p_help.


    'text Line 1 for help' to it_hl,

    'test line 2 for help' to it_hl.

    Call Function 'HELP_DOCULINES_SHOW'


    • CUCOL = 10

    • CUROW = 3

    help_infos = ws_help_infos

    • LINENR = 1

    • NOT_HELP = ' '

    • OVERLAY_HEADER = ' '






    excludefun = it_ef

    helplines = it_hl


    It will work...
