      Hi Amith,

      IN WAD when you drag and drop the DROPDOWN ITEM , check the web parameters what you have given.

      In web item parameters -> Data Binding type-> Variable Selection Properties.

      Kindly check out what you have selected or menitioned over there

      Hope it helps

      Regards

    Unfortunately, as far as I have seen, this is how it works (the attr.s will also show in input help).

      Hi Amith, Ozgur,

      check tab "Attribute" in characteristics maintenance scrren. In column "Order for F4 Help" you define fields, which are displayed in each F4 screen, so in dropdown box as well.

      Best Regards
