What you should do and not do when designing a selection screen ...

  • Do Pay serious attention to your selection screen - it should tell a clear tale on the functionality behind it
  • Don't forget the message "No data found" - returning to a selection screen without results deserves a message (e.g. MESSAGE s085(v2).)
  • Do consider use of user parameters - picking up the user's last Vendor Number and defaulting it in your report can be a prize winner
  • Don't forget to set up F4 processing for the most important fields
  • Do consider warning (or even stopping) the end-user if the selection is likely to be very big
  • Don't use flag parameters without bombarding them to checkboxes first (AS CHECKBOX option on PARAMETERS)
