Hi all,

I am working on a table control in a module pool program. I have three fields in table control , material no. , material description and quantity. my requirement is , in table control , i need to provide the F4 help for material no. and material description, in a way, if i select material no. using F4, the corresponding material description field would be entered automatically in the table control field.

Pls suggest me on this , if possible pls give me code or logic to do this.

In the table creation time you have to create a search help where the import parameter is material number and export parameters are material number and material descriptions.then attach the search help with the field matnr.

Hi Saravana,

Please search in SCN before posting. You will find many threads related to this question. The basic logic is you have to get the selected row of table control using DYNP_GET_STEPL function in your POV. Then using function DYNP_VALUES_READ read the material and create the description to be displayed. You have use function F4IF_INT_TABLE_VALUE_REQUEST to display search help.
