    A little confused here. As your question is "How can I attach a menu in my selection screen" and below , you mention, that you have attached the menu, but not able to get the function code.

    Nevertheless, let us know, whether the menu that you see in the selection screen is the same menu that you have set in the PF-STATUS. Also, where have you set the PF-STATUS, under which event ?

    Can you also post your code ? (or do you want us to post a code ? )


    Double check, whether you have attached a function code to all the new functions(menu items) entered in the PF-STATUS. Also check whether the PF-STATUS is activated.

    If all the above steps are done properly(and if I have not overlooked any steps), I think the selection screen should work fine.

    In case you have found the answer, do share it with us.

      Hello Arun,

      The main problem, as I see it is the use of the SY-UCOMM value in your program to catch the function-code. In all selection-screen processing, you are to use SSCRFIELDS structure defined in the ABAP dictionary. There is a field called UCOMM in this structure which you are supposed to use for selection-screen PAI.

      For more information, refer to the following link in the SAP Online documentation :

      And here's another post on SDN where I have explained about the usage of SSCRFIELDS.


      Remember you would have to declare the SSCRFIELDS structure in your program with a tables statement.

      For example...


      tables sscrfields.
      data: ..........
      parameters: ........
        set pf-status 'TEST'
        case sscrfields-ucomm.
          when 'DIS'.
            perform display.
          when 'EXT'.
            perform exit_program.


      Hope I have struck the right note.
