Remove the historical cache for particular field

Former Member

Hi all,

I am working on a module pool program. There is one field to display the exployee number, let's say the field length is 8 char.

Everytime accessing into the screen, the employee number field should clear (clear from history) for the next new employee to enter the employee number.

The problem I am facing now is, the next employee can easily press on the SPACEBAR to select the employee number from the history (which is not agreed by my boss).

I also understand that there is a fastest way to handle this by increasing the field length to longer, let's say 60 char. Then it will not display out in list for them to select from history even they press on SPACEBAR.

In ABAP programming, how do I remove it from history for this particular field? Other fields are required to store in history for easier data entry.

Thanks in advance.
