F4 help for vendor name in transaction FK03

Former Member
0 Kudos

Transaction FK03: F4 search help on the field "Name" displays a search dialog box with name1 field having only 25 characters but actually the name field has 35 characters in the tables i.e LFA1.

This makes a name such as for example 'TAMAERA LOUISA MAY LALOGGIA' doesnot show up all the records

The match code field is MCOD1.

Can anyone help on this issue

U can do with the help of Search help exit.F4IF_SHLP_EXIT_EXAMPLE

Copy this fm to ZF4IF_SHLP_EXIT_Vendor.

And do the modification inside the fm.

If useful reward points.

Hi shivakumar,

the searchhelp use LFA1-MCODE1 wich has 25 char.

Make your own seachhelp with LFA1-NAME1 and combine it

as include in searchhelp wich is used in FK03.
