Default value in Look up table

Hi Experts,

Can i have a default value shown in the lookup table values??

I have a lookup table with 20 values in it.

In these 20 values the customer selects 3rd value quite frequently , so he want that 3rd value to be shown as a default.

I know its possible in Boolean type fields, but how can we satisfy this requirement when using Lookup tables..

Does someone have some idea whether this is possible?? If not what could be the alternative approach!!!

Kind Regards

    Hi Eva,

    If your using Portal in your landscape then you can easily develop this using JAVA API or ABAP API. please talk to the portal guy as i am not aware of the functionalites of it.

    If you want your scenario in MDM Data manager, We can get that done by a workflow for updating a default Lookup value in a lookup field in main table based on WorkFlow Trigger Action as Record Add and Auto launch Immendiate


    As the workflow triggers on Record Add , if the user selected some other look up value and save the record in Data manager and then workflow triggers and over writes that value and user should make sure that he would change the value after saving...

    i mean he/she need to update the record again which is saved.

    Let me know if you need any help in the scenario of MDM Data Manager.

    • Hi,

      We are using portal as a front end but we are using standerd iViews.

      No custom development is allowed in project.

      So the only option that i have is WF, but this happenes only after record import/add.

      I have learnt that there is no other alternative to make this requirement possible in standerd portal via MDM.

      Thanks for the reply.

      Kind Regards
