You configure a Descriptive Flex field (DFF) segment with Value Set type of drop down list of values . In Value Set setup you specify Value = Code; Description = Name.

For example, a field in the UI called "Retail Company" for which you have specify the Value Set entry as Value = 001 (Code), Description= XYZ Company (Name).

Both Value = 001 (Code), Description= XYZ Company (Name) displays in the drop down List Of Values (LOV) for the Retail Company field, however once user selects the Value, only the Value for Code i.e 001 displays in the DFF segment , but the Description i,e XYZ Company is not displayed next to it .

Is there a way to enable both Value and Description to display on the screen?
