Customizing Search Help to look for data outside R/3 - can it be done ? Thx

Dear ABAP developers,

This is our required scenario and I hope you can confirm that it is possible.

We have a R/3 4.6 C system. We are building a new MDM and Portal application for Materials.

Normally users would use the search help on Material master and look for Materials available in R/3 using match code generated search helps.

Now we would like to let them search for Materials in Portal ( MDM data) if they want to.

can we define a new search help which would let them go out of R/3 and into portal to look for Materials if they want ?

The concept is to create a Function module in R/3 which would invoke a Function module in NW ABAP stack which would run the portal application.

Is it possible to customize/modify the code generated in the search help in R/3 to execute the Function Module ? I read somewhere about search help exits . Is theis the right place to put that code ?

If there are other better ways to do this, please let me know.

Thanks for your assistance.
