Hello,

I am looking for a way to add a field into COOIS that is user field and then saved.

I am aware how to add fields I would just like to know how I can make and save a user filled custom field.

Thank you for your reply

I have a solution I think.

I took the problem up with my mentor and after looking into the conclussion we came to was. That the best thing to do is to create a new long text object in SE10 and use SAVE_TEXT and READ_TEXT respectively.

I was also alerted to it and advised to use COMMIT_TEXT instead of using the save option when calling the SAVE_TEXT FM instead of using the Exporting parameter savemode_direct as if there is an error during the creation/saving of the object it would have to be manually deleted.

That is the solution that we came up with if you have something to add please feel free to.

COOIS is a reporting cockpit and there are many tables available as well as links to associated maintenance transactions/API.

  • First identify the table you want to enhance, then look for CI includes or append structures
  • Finally, look for BAdIs or other extensions available for the related transactions.
  • Example BAdI WORKORDER_INFOSYSTEM.

Hi,

I already have a BADi and a implementation and the CI_IOHeADER structure extendes to match my requirements.

I am interested if you might know about a way to create a user editable text field?

I am pretty new to ABAP and am unsure if that is what I am looking for.
