Usage of DDIC search help relying on several structures

Hello Experts

We want to reuse existing DDIC structures in our new WD4ABAP application. Some of the structures have DDIC search helps assigned that have field assignments to other table / structures. In normal Dynpro this works as long as Dynpro fields do exist that display data of the structure components required by the search help.


Search help 1 is assigned to structure A and has two import parameters:

  • search help parameter OBJ_CAT has a field assignment to table name A and field A1

  • search help parameterOBJ_TYPE has a field assignment to table name B and field B1

As I already said, Dynpro can handle this. But Iu2019m interested if WD4A can handle this as well? Can I introduce two nodes A and B and the search help 1 will be WD-ready as well?

Regards, Mathias

    WDA can support such import of DDic Search Help parameters, only if all the parameters are from a single DDic Structure/Table and that Structure/Table is used as the source type of a single Context Node. Sometimes this might mean creating a custom DDic Structure to consolidate all of your parameters for mapping.
