    Hello,

    Import and Export Parameters:

    1. Import parameters: Parameters with which context information from the processed input template (screen) may be copied to the help process.

    2. Export parameters: Parameters with which values from the hit list may be returned to the input template.(which returns to the template)

    Parameter Assignment : It is like reference parameter. The parameter names of the elementary search helps to which the corresponding parameters of the collective search help should be assigned.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Guru

    Hi

    <copy/pasted passage removed by moderator>

    Refer the following link for detailed description for import and export parametrs :

    http://help.sap.com/erp2005_ehp_04/helpdata/EN/35/bdb6e2c48411d1950800a0c929b3c3/content.htm

    Question 2 : Parameter assignment is to assign the parameters that are in your elementary search help to be used in collective search help too. This will act as reference field from your elementary search help. Its just a sort of reusability of your field in elementary search help to be used in Collective search help.

    Hope this helps you..

    Regards
