Adding Search Help to Standard Fields

Former Member

I have a requirement to attach search help to a field telephone(TELF0) of transaction ME47.  Can anyone tell me how to do the same? I have searched SDN for this topic already. The solution that I found was that we need to do that via Field Exit. We need to create a field exit and then call our search help from within this Function Module.

So accordingly I created a field exit and called the FM F4IF_INT_TABLE_VALUE_REQUEST to try to get the value from internal table. I also tried to create a search help in SE11 and then attach via FM F4IF_FIELD_VALUE_REQUEST

Now the problem is that we can not call screen in a field exit. But both these FM's have call screen statement. So I am getting a dump "CALL SCREEN" not allowed. So how do I attach a help to this standard field.?

I have read the documentation thrice over. There is absolutely nothing that is even remotely connected to the problem that I am facing.
