This field displays whether and possibly how an input help is attached to the field.

An input help can be assigned to a table or structure field in different ways:

  • Attachment of a search help to the field
  • Input help with the check table assigned to the field
  • Attachment of a search help to the data element assigned to the field
  • Fixed values from the domain assigned to the field
  • Input help for data types DATS and TIMS

If more than one of these mechanisms is possible for a field, the first one mentioned is used.
