    A domain is a data dictionary object to define data elements, and possibly add some pre-defined values to it.

    A search help can be defined for a data element, and can be used to help the user to search for values on input screens after pushing the F4 (possible values) button.

    After F4 the system determines whether there is a search help, or otherwise get the values based on the data element or domain.

    hi kumar,

    search help is for the purpose when u press f4 the desired vales come for that particular field and you can choose out of them. but in domain you can give a range of values between which you want to have vales in your field, after this if you enter some value out of range then it will be invalid and here you can also give some fixed vale with text according to your requirement.

    hope this information will help you.

    Regards

    Hi Kumar,

    Welcome to SCN.

    Both are objects of ABAP Dictionary.

    And difference DOMAIN is used to define the technical attributes of the field.

    And SEARCH HELP is used to define the input help for a particular field values.

    Cheers!!

    data element will not accept any value other then specified within its domain

    while with search help, this is not the case until we use addition [value check]
