Alternate FM for F4 Help


Hi All,

I have a screen with two input/output fields 'Inspection Lot Number' and 'Operation Number'.

I need to create an F4 Help for a field say Inspection Lot Number. On this F4 help I need to display another field Operation Number.

When the user selects a particular record, the corresponding values selected should get displayed in the two screen fields.

I am currently using teh FM 'F4IF_INT_TABLE_VALUE_REQUEST' to do this.

However in this FM you are able to pass only 1 key field name in the Importing parameter 'retfield'.

On exceution of the FM the value of only that key field gets returned.

Now in my case I can have multiple operation numbers for the same Inspection Lot Number.

This will be displayed as two separate records in the F4 Help.

Now since I have only the value of the Inspection Lot Number in my return table, I am also not able to query my internal table on this basis to fetch the Operation Number that is determined only at runtime.

Can you please suggest an alternative FM or solution to achieve this functionality.
