maintenance view field validation

Former Member

Hi all,

I've created a ztable that includes the field ekgrp with search help H_T024. I want to implement a check table...or some logic that will prevent my user from entering an invalid value as opposed to selecting a valid value from the search help list. Can someone point me to some documentation that talks this kind of an issue...or provide an example?

best reagrds,

Hi ,

You create the Check table relationship also for the field in your table with the check table as T024, Then the values will be restricted , Other wise you need to create the Events in your maintenance view

which is shown in below link.

I go to SE11 and open my ztable. I select the Entry / help check tab and go into edit mode. It seems I cannot set a value for check table associated with the field ekgrp if I reference domain ekgrp or bkgrp for fieild ekgrp. Are you saying I need to create a new domain to associate with the ekgrp field...or is there an easier way to perform field validation? Is there any way to change the field characteristics so the user must select form the drop down as opposed to typing in the field?

Hi ,

For this you need to create the Foreign key relation ship for that field

Just select the field and click on Foreign keys button and give the table T024.
