Hi All,

Can any help me out.

I have created a custom Collective Search ZH_T023_MEPO, I want it to be assigned it to the Tcode ME53N. Replacing the standard one H_T023_MEPO. and i also need to restrict it for only one Plant for other Plantu2019s standard search help H_T023_MEPO should work as usual

The search help in the item overview (of the purchase order) is H_T023_MEPO whereas in the item details section (tabstrip Material Data ) it is H_T023.

Thus, there would be at least two search helps that you need to change or modify.

I would suggest a different approach assuming that your requirement is to restrict the search help under certain conditions (e.g. plant). Implement the BAdI ME_PROCESS_PO_CUST and implement two methods:

PROCESS_ITEM = check material group of item and invalidate if required
CHECK = closing check of entire PO (in case of invalid material groups return CH_FAILED = 'X'
