    Hi Shankar,

    I assume that you are having a report with a list output and that you are not using ALV.

    Consider the following code:

    ===================================

    data w_test type vbeln value '100'.

    write w_test.

    ===================================

    The output is, quite obviously, the value 100. Now, on the list if you position the cursor on this value and click F1, you will get a pop-up with the field help. this is happenning because the data-element VBELN has the documentation maintained, and we are able to see it.

    But unlike in the case of a screen output, in the case of lists we cannot program the F1 help for the user-defined fields i.e., if you write a field <b>w_test</b> to the list which has been declared as something like <b> DATA W_TEST TYPE I</b>, you cannot get the F1 help.

    If you need the F1 help for the field, the field should be declared with reference to some the data-element that has the required documentation.

    Hope the explanation has been clear enough for you. If not, please do get back to me.

    Regards,

    Anand Mandalika.
