Getting Drop Down list for a field in portal based on the values in R/3



Presently we were customizing the ESS>>Family Members/Dependants iview in Portal. Because of the design requirement, in R/3 we have added some custom field for infotype 21 (Family Member details Infotype). We have to display these field on portal in Family Member Iview.

However for these custom fields i am not able to get the drop down list with all the possible values description(F4 help ) in portal unlike the standard SAP fields.

I am able to display the codes but the description is not coming up for the fields. However for standard SAP field, only description comes.

For this I tried to attach the search help to the data element and also assigned a check table to the data element in R/3. But still I am not getting the description in the drop down.

So how can I get the description and only the description in the drop down.
