Formatted Search on User Defined Object > Default Form > Header Line Style

Hello Experts,

I have a question regarding User defined Objects and formatted searches.

My UDO is defined:

- Master Data

- default form

- header line Style (not matrix)

Is it possible to define a formatted search on the fields? After I have defined it disappears and is not saved.

I can only define the formatted search on Matrix Style UDO's.

Do you have any ideas how to solve it?

Thanks in advance and BR,

    Oh I found this is an application error.

    See SAP note, for a workaound using Screen Painter

    1857246 - No drop-down list appears for fields with a Linked Table on a Default Form which is Header Line Style

    Please refer SAP notes:

    1093650 - FMS assigned to FORM instead of TABLE for UDO

    Applicable version : 2007 A

    • Hello,

      thanks for your advice but we are running SAP B1 8.82 PL9.

      So the SAP-Note is not relevant because according to notes it should be solved in Version 2005 A SP01 PL 48.

      But I think my issue is related to this. I had an other table with same UDFs before where I should have the FMS but copy express didn't copied the FMS (maybe I have not ticked all relevant objects in copy express?). But I have deleted the other table (which was not an object).

      But the strange thing is that the FMS will work in Object > Matrix Style BUT not in same Object > Header Line Style. In this case the message "This entry already exists in the following tables 'User-Defined Values' (CSHS) (ODBC -2035) [Message 131-183]" appears now.

      This message also appears in UDO (Header Line Style) when I have created a complete new UDF for this object and try to use FMS.

    Hello experts,

    what was the final solution to this issue? Now, I am facing a similar issue, but this time is happening with a combo box. I have defined one of the fields to be linked to a UDT. When I change the default form to be matrix style, this combo box works fine. But, when it is Header Line style, the dropdown dissapears.

    This is occurring in SAP 9.0 PL05.

    Any help on this would be appreciated.
