    Hello Shankar,

    Firstly, there's one point that you need to keep in mind - in most cases, if you are getting something automatically, it is usually because of some tie-up with the ABAP Data Dictionary (most common are the data-elements).

    Now, what exactly do you mean by F1 help in a basic report? If you write some fields (defined with reference to some Dictionary field / data-element) to the standard list output in SAP, pressing F1 on that field will give you the documentation maintained for the data-element.

    So also, in case of ALV, you will be able to get the F1 documentation for the fields with reference to the dictionary types. I do not see why you shouldn't get it.

    If you can give me more details of your problem, I wll be able to help you better in fixing it.

    Regards,

    Anand Mandalika.

    Are you using Grid or List ALV ?

    Check program BCALV_GRID_01 and try a F1 for ID.

    I believe, if there is documentation for the data element, F1 for that should work. Not sure about this though.

    Hi Shankar,

    In the field catalog, do either of the following:

    Example case is for Material Number

    (a) Table and field reference

    IT_FCAT-REF_FIELDNAME = 'MATNR'

    IT_FCAT-REF_TABNAME = 'MARA'

    or

    (b) Using the Data Element

    IT_FCAT-ROLLNAME = 'MATNR'

    both of them will enable F1 help.

    regards,

    Satya
