2742148 - Value Help Search Restricted to 200 Results


  • Custom Fields within SAP GUI style Fiori apps will have the value help restricted to 200 results
  • Adjusting the restrictions within the value help will only filter within those 200 results, not from the full result list
  • There is a warning when clicking on the value help that says:
    • “More than 200 values correspond to the selection criteria”



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a new custom business object with more than 200 objects in it using the Custom Business Objects app
  2. Create a custom field that is an association to the custom business object, using the Custom Fields and Logic app
  3. Add the custom field to an SAP GUI style app like Change Sales Orders
  4. Now while in the SAP GUI style app, edit the value for the custom field by clicking on the value help for this field
  5. Since there are more than 200 results in the value help, the warning will appear, and within the value help it will not be possible to see the other results


For performance reasons, the current implementation of value help forces a limitation on the result set displayed in Value Help


  • The results shown in value help can be filtered by typing a few characters into the field and the clicking the value help button

    • E.g.: entering "Test" will filter the results to the first 200 starting with the word Test
  • A feature request has been submitted to address this issue but it will not be implemented before SAP S/4HANA Cloud Version 1911
