RE:[sap-log-sd] Short Codes for Customer Searches in VA01

Hi Jeremy,

For all tabs in the search help (F4) for searching customers and materials there is such a capital letter. It's an easy setting for every user available.

You have to set this as follows:
from your initial SAP screen click Help
select Settings
select tab F4 Help
at Display select Dialog (modal)
click Enter or Save

Now if you search a customer with the search help in VA01 or XD02 you will see this capital letter appears for each tab.

Directly entering this code like =D.customer name (by company code) gives you a list of customers which apply to your search. Once you used this search help once the next time you only have to type ' = ' and then the customer name. Next time if you want to search a customer with another search help you type for example =A. or =E. SAP automatically saves the last used code.

In customizing you can define other search helps for customers and materials and so on and give them a letter of your own choice.

Hope this helps you.

Best regards

Subject: Short Codes for Customer Searches in VA01

When I first used SAP many years ago, I used a short code for searching for a customer whilst creating a sales order. Specifically =D. and then the customer search term. This seems to pick up the first field in whichever search option you were in last, so by default I guess search term 1 from Customers (general). I've not seen this anywhere since (this was at least 8 years ago), but the same short code seems to work in ECC6. Question is...are there others that will specifically search another field? And if so, does anyone have a list of these?
