How to use pop-in's for cells
I have a table with 5 columns. For each cell i need to maintain some text. Like Row-Popin's can we do a cell pop-in ?
I have checked the program WDR_TEST_TABLE. There they have used the Linkto action based on the value of the field. But in my case all the fields in the 5 columns are Input fields. So i have used OnEnter action event. Ifts not working out.
Any Suggessions to handle Cell Pop-in's in a table having input fields ?

As I said there is no such thing a cell popin. I'm not sure from a user interface design standpoint there is a really good solution to this as long as your data entry is within a table. In my opinion you just are packing too much information into too small a space.
In a cell editor you can't combine multiple UI elements and you have a limited set of UI elements that can be used. I don't see anything that would allow what you describe. I could only see maybe adding a second set of columns to your table so that for each input column you also have a corresponding button or link that launches a dialog to allow for the additional input of data.
However having seen your screen design it does seem like that would be a very busy screen. Perhaps you should rethink the design of the application overall.
