problem with concatenate for an drop down input with search help
I have this drop down input field. My table has these columns : code, first name, last name and other not important.
I have a search help for code column that shows the first name.
I`ve been trying to make it to show the first name and last name both in one dropdown....but when I tried to add the last name in the search help it stopped working (the non recommended example from the link).
I also tried an select, loop at the itab and trying to concatenate those 2 columns in a new column of a second itab. It works but it shows only first name.
I`ve been using the recommended example for the drop down from here : http://help.sap.com/SAPhelp_nw04s/helpdata/en/9f/dbabe435c111d1829f0000e829fbfe/content.htm
Let me know if you need to see the exact code I`m using.
Sure you guys can help me out....probably I`m missing something very simple.

I dont understand your logic in populating the contatenated value. The concatenated value is stored in ITAB_COD2-NUME but the ITAB_COD1 is appended ?
CONCATENATE itab_cod1-nume itab_cod1-prenume into itab_cod2-nume. APPEND itab_cod1 to itab_cod2. * ?? itab_cod1-nume does not contain concatenated value
Correct the Append and it should work.
