Using this method, you read allowed values for process instruction characteristics and process message characteristics from the R/3 System.
The allowed values are determined based on the search help that hasbeen allocated to the characteristics in R/3 Customizing. The following characteristic settings are taken into account (see IMG for
The allowed single values or value rangesThe allocated check table or check functionThe allocated foreign key dependency
Process Management, Define characteristics for process messages and Define characteristics for processinstructions):
Matchcodes defined in characteristics are not taken into account.
Prerequisites for Value SelectionThe characteristics must belong to a characteristics group that hasbeen released for use in process instructions or process messages (see IMG for Process Management, Define
characteristics groups for process messages and Define characteristics groups for process instructions). The system checks whether the characteristics groups have been released in the plant you specify in parameter Plant.A function module for value selection in the background must have been
defined for characteristics with check functions. The name of the function module must consists of the following:
The name of the check function defined in the characteristic
The ending _ND
A corresponding function module is currently available for the following check function in the standard system:
COC1_PPPI_CHAR_VALUES (Value check of process characteristics with foreign key dependencies)
You need the following authorization to carry out the method:
Authorization object Field Value
C_PROCCHAR Characteristic name Characteristics whose
values you want to read
Aktivit舩 B1 (Transfer allowed
values to external system)
The system checks the characteristic whose name you specify in parameter CharacteristicName.
Using parameter SelectionForHelpvalues you can pass on criteriafor the selection of allowed values. Which criteria you can use depends on the search help of the characteristic.
For information on the search help, first carry out the method using the DescriptionOnly indicator.
If you do so, the R/3 System passes on the search help parameters, that is, the criteria you can use, in parameter DescriptionForHelpvalues (provided there are any).
To read the allowed values, carry out the method without the DescriptionOnly
indicator afterwards and pass on the selection criteria.
Allowed Values Transfer
The allowed values are returned in parameters Helpvalues, ValuesForField, or FixValues.
System messages issued during method processing are returned in parameter Return. For more information on possible system messages and their meaning, see the parameter documentation.
