You can create search helps in SE11. There is a radiobutton for them. Is this search help for a custom table?

You can define search helps over database tables or views. Enter the name of the db table or view in the Selection Method field, then at the bottom add the fields that you want to show in the search help.

In the IMP column check the fields that you want to see in the popup box. In the EXP column, check the field that you want to return to the screen field when the user double clicks the entry. Enter your posistion numbers... 1,2,3,4 etc. Enter the data elements that correspond to the fields in your database table or view.

SH creation: In SE11, give a custom name for search help and select Elementary or Cumulative. Then in Selection method select the table from which the data needs to be fetched.

Provide the fields that are to be retreived in Search help parameters.check the fields that are to be imported and exported and also the position(1.2..) of the fields to be displayed.

And in the custom table give this search help in help/check in se11 table display.

This should solve your problem
