Obtaining the texts of an SAP drop down list: I want to access a particular field in the 'create sales order' (header->shipping) screen (VA01). I would like to obtain the shipping conditions text, but can't find the right screen element. Can you please give me some advice?

The shipping conditions text is not available in GuiXT. We can obtain the id (e.g. "ZM") from SAP GUI.

If you need to read the text, a "Call" is probably the best solution. You can  read table TVSBT with function Z_GUIXT_SELECT_SINGLE; see our documentation "Foreign key check and text display"; the direct link is


Or you can use the search help H_TVSB with function module Z_S10_SEARCHHELP; for details please see keyword documentation 'dropdownlist'.
