SAP ECTR has a feature that allows the user to enable or modify the F4 help value list in the create material dialog.
This guide will describe how to configure this feature.
Maintaining SAP ECTR Object Data
First of all the object data of materials has to be maintained, to do so use the function Select Object Data in the administrator menu.
The function will call the SAP GUI and show the object data for ECTR objects.
Here, the object data which should be transferred to SAP ECTR can be selected. There are four check boxes for the different object functions: display, edit, copy, and search. The search function has to be enabled for the object data you want to use for the F4 help.
The second step to enable this feature is to configure the necessary settings for the SAP ECTR frontend. For example, in order to enable the F4 Search Help of the material field MARA.SPART, two configuration settings have to be made. Firstly, the support has to be enabled. This can be done with the preference variable plm.mat.create.multi.adv.fields.support.
Secondly, the F4 Search Help that you want to use has to be linked to the material field.
