Changing data in hit list through search help exit

Hello all,

The following are the things i have implemented

1. i have attached the search help to a feild in a DB table and same i have created an input feild on the selection screen with same name (using DDIC).

2. I have given a search help exit function also to remove the duplicate enteries in the hit list.

Now when the user presses nothing on the dialog box which appears for value restriction i am getting some enteries which i dont want.

I want to manually write a select query in the search help exit to do that.

Kindly let me know how to do it.

I am new to programming in ABAP and a well commented code would be helpful.

Hello Naveen

The search help record values are stored in an unstructured string (SEAHLPRES-STRING). Thus, to figure out the records you want to delete you need to implement some logic, e.g.:

" Define a structure according to the definition of the search help parameters.
TYPES: BEGIN OF ty_s_record.
TYPES: ...
TYPES: END OF ty_s_record.
DATA: ls_record     TYPE ty_s _record.
DATA: ls_line         LIKE LINE OF RECORD_TAB.

  LOOP AT record_tab INTO ls_line.
  CLEAR: ls_record.

  CALL METHOD cl_abap_container_utilities=>read_container_c
      im_container           = ls_line-string
      ex_value               = ls_record
      illegal_parameter_type = 1
      OTHERS                 = 2.   

    IF ( ls_record-... = ... ).
      DELETE record_tab[] INDEX syst-tabix.
