F4 help for new PPOMA attribute

0 Kudos


I have a question regarding creating new attributes in ppoma structure with F4 value help.

I have created and attribute in SM30 view T77OMATTR. I have assigned table with values and field with values.

This is the table with values.

I have assigned standard F4 help but this does not works.

I want to assign a value to this attribute, but I have no value help for this field and I can input everything.

Where is the mistake? I have to create custom FM for every attribute I create even if there is search help in the table?

You need to write the FM or table from the backend where the search help would read from in table BBP_ATTR_F4CONF

Please refer the link which has the details of how it works

When you compare entries in the table you would know that it could pick entries from backend table as well as from front end table

and you can more columns by adding additional table or same table and additional field names

let me know if that helps?

I believe so, you have to create your own program or FM to retrieve the data for your custom attribute. Standard system will never know what the customer attribute is and where its data are stored.
