In the view field we put the fields that we want to show in our view. Click on Table fields and select the table and fields.

Choose the fields that we want to include

Now in the ‘Selection Conditions’ tab give the selection criteria if we want  to filter on the basis of some conditions as in below screen shot

For example if we want to include only those values for which “Company code is 1000’ and ‘Item number is ‘010’ “


If we can give multiple conditions with the help of ‘Logical Operators’

AND=> True only in case of all the conditions are true

OR=>   True in the case if any of the condition is true

In the next tab maintenance status can be provided. In case of Help view only two options are available:

Read Only: Data can only be read

Read and change: Existing entries can be changed but deletion or insertion is not possible

Now save  and activate   the View.  

2) Use of help view in search help:

To create a search help go to SE11 and provide search help name and click ‘Create’. For  example we want to create ‘Elementary search help


In next pop-up choose Elementary search help. In the next screen provide short description and in the selection method input provide the name of help view. In the parameter, provide the search help parameters and provide the other properties whether it is import or export parameter their positions etc. Now Save  and activate  the search help.

3. Use of search help: we can use this search help with the help of keyword ‘Matchcode object’  

Now at the selection screen when we press ‘F4’ in the select-option parameter ‘so_werks’ a list appears for which item is ‘10’ as we had given in our help view selection condition

Summary: In the above example, steps for creating help view and how to use that in search help has been explained.
