How to insert a hyperlink in ABAP documentation

In SE38 you can create your own online documentation. I want to insert a hyperlink in this documentation so that when the user clicks the 'I' icon, he can click directly on the hyperlink in the documentation.

In my research I found that when you are editing the documentation, you must choose Insert -> Link. Once I click that, I get a popup asking for the following fields:

Document Class:

"Field based on what Document Class is chosen":

Name in Document:

Does anyone know what I need to fill in those fields?

Thank you,

    Document Class is the type of object for the documentation your linking to.(e.g. Class, Report, Data Element)

    Name in Document is the text that will show in your documentation.(the text that is linked to other documentation)

    Hope it helps.

    Hello Brenda,

    Here are the steps to create a hyper link. In this example I made a link to transaction code, FB03

    1. Go into document in change mode.

    2. Make sure your paragraph format is AS.

    3. Type in the word you want user to double-click to initiate link (i.e., FB03).

    4. After you select INSERT->LINK, select type of link you want in field document class (e.g. Transaction Link).

    5. In field beneath Document Class enter an appropriate value (e.g., t-code FB03).

    6. Field labeled "Name in Document" should already be filled from step 2.

    7. Click green arrow icon.

    8. Save your document and exit.

    When you display document again, you should see word (FB03) highlighted. If you double-click, then SAP should transfer you to link. In this case it would be transaction FB03.

    Kind Regards,
