F4 Help in Maintenance View doesn't work anymore

I have 3 database tables that each have a maintenance view. The tables are linked via foreign key relationships. In the maintenance views, there was a F4-help available for the foreign keys.

Now, I added all tables to a view cluster (se54...).

Since then, the F4 work in the view cluster, but not in the maintenance views. Strangely, F4 help that is bound to data elements still works, only F4 help working on foreign key relationships doesn't work anymore.

What can I do?

    I figured it out myself.

    If you add a generated table maintenance to a view cluster, the F4-helps that are based on a foreign relationship between 2 tables that are both in the view cluster won't work anymore.

    The "view cluster generator" will create it's own F4 helps for those relationships.

    So, you should use a generated table maintenance view EITHER on its own OR in a view cluster.

    If you want BOTH, you have to read further. Unfortunately, my descriptions is hard to read because "generated table maintenance" and "maintenance view" sounds similar but is not the same.

    You have to create additional maintenance views for each table, generate table maintenance for the maintenance views and use the maintenance views in the view clusters and the generated table maintenance for the tables on its own.
