Planning with Lumira-Designer: F4 value help missing in spreadsheet component

Hello everybody,

we are trying to implement a planning solution based on Lumira-Designer spreadsheet component comparable to Analysis for Office.

When planning characteristics as key figures we are missing the F4 help functionality.

Does anybody know, how to set up this functionality or is this a gap to Analysis for Office?

Kind regards,

    Hi Thomas - Lumira Designer has value help feature to set up your own value help - see SAP Help:

    Have you tried it - would it meet your requirement?

      Hi Thomas,

      I have spent some time messing around with the new Value Help component and have managed to get it working in one of our applications. Yes the Value Help technical component only provides options to configure how F4 help is displayed, but you then need to create a binding between your cross tab and the Value Help technical component.


      1. Create Value Help technical component and configure as required
      2. Go to your Crosstab and under the Planning heading select the value help component you have created from the list in the property "Value Help Settings".

      Until the binding is made, the Value Help technical component will not do anything at runtime.

      Cheers, Ivan.
