Adding new field on the dynamic selection-screen
By Joyjit Ghosh
Most of us observe that whenever a logical database is
attached with a report, it automatically adds dynamic selection screen button on
the report selection screen.
Ex: Transaction FBL1N
If we click on this button, it will open up a separate
selection screen that can be dynamically adjusted based on the fields you choose
from the left hand side folders (Function
Now our requirement is to add new field in the left hand side
folder (as well as in the selection screen) that is not present currently.
First, we need to know the name of the logical database that
is attached with the program.
In case of FBL1N, program name is RFITEMAP.
Go to the program’s attribute screen to know the logical
database name. In our case it is KDF.
Now go to transaction SE36
and choose the menu Extras
→ Selection Views.
In the next screen, select Origin of view: SAP and Name
of view: STANDARD, and click Display
This is the view that SAP uses to generate the dynamic
Here three functional
groups of fields those are available in the dynamic selections.
01 Vendor Master
02 Company code
Each functional group contains fields from the tables that
are listed on the right side (LFA1, ADDR1_VAL, etc). The field which is assigned
to a functional group will be available in left hand side of the dynamic
selection screen under the folder with name of the function group.
that for every field assigned to a functional group, there is a “Preselect”
checkbox on the right. This checkbox indicates whether the relevant field should
be directly available for selection.
As we want to extend the SAP-delivered dynamic selections
with new fields, so we must create our own selection view. This view will have CUS
as the Origin, and must be named STANDARD.
To create such a view, simply use the Copy button on the top of the screen, and copy the SAP delivered
view to a CUS view.
Once the customer-defined view is created then go to change
mode and add new fields in the functional group.
In this case we have added the field NAME1 in functional group Vendor
Now save the view , go back to the transaction and open the
dynamic selection screen. You can see the new field NAME1 is added in it.
