F1 Help Assignment

Hi experts,

I have a custom screen with fields. I have this requirement wherein if I choose a field and presses the F1 button, a custom help text will appear. How can I do this?

In the screen painter you place the cursor in the field string of a screen on the field to be documented and select the menu goto > documentation > data el. extra

Now you will get a popup with the data element and the number of the current screen as an identifier for the additional text. In addition to the help contents in the ABAP/4 Dict you can enter your own Description

Here you enter your own description and SAVE
