The maintenance screen for the field selection for matchcode objects is displayed. The key fields of all the tables that are relevant for the matchcode object are automatically copied. These fields are indicated by an appropriate entry in the Key column.
The fields of the corresponding table are displayed in a dialog box.
The entry is highlighted. You can remove fields that were wrongly selected by positioning the cursor on the field and choosing Delete selection.
The selected fields are included in the matchcode object.
The order of the fields in the matchcode object is irrelevant. If two fields of different tables have the same name, a new name must be entered in the column MC field for at least one field.
In order to use matchcodes as an online help, there must be a link between a field on the screen and a matchcode field. This link is established with the search field, which is normally assigned to the first key field of the primary table.
In a matchcode selection within the online help, the value of the search field is copied to the screen. If you want to select another search field, you must simply mark it in the corresponding column.
All the fields in matchcodes must have character data types (CHAR, NUMC, ACCP, CLNT, CUKY, DATS, TIMS, LANG, UNIT).
