Creating F1 helps in ease

By Gaurab Banerji

Go to SE61 and create a general text TX like the one shown below.

  • Select General Text from Document Class
  • Select Language
  • Type Name and press create

 Type in what you want to see in output

U1 is for the Bold Text you see in the heading of the F1 Help. If you don’t want to specify a bold text you can just type it in the DOKTITLE in the function module called. 

Save the Text.

Now Displaying the F1 Help. I have modified an existing program for showing F1 help. See below
