How to Find a Search Help behind any SAP Field in SAP?


One common Enhancement we get is add more fields in the Search Help in a Standard Transaction Code or Custom Transaction Code. This blog helps out to identify the Fundamental Search help that we need to Tweak.This blog helps in both SAP ECC and SAP S/4HANA



In this example we are considering Transaction Code VA03

Go to VA03

Now put a Debug by entering /H in Command Bar

Now put the Debug point on Function Module DD_SHLP_CALL_FROM_DYNP and Execute

You can also put the Debugger on Function Module DD_SHLP_GET

Debugger stops on the Function Module and we double click on HELP_INFOS Variable

Here is the Search Help VMVA


Now we can search the Search Help in SE11


Here it is



The search help is very important and is one of important reason Business Loves SAP

      It would be easier to just browse the search helps at SE80 for that package.  Or use the search help on the... Search Help field at SE11.
