Proceed as follows to create a structure:
The maintenance screen for structures appears.
Carry out the following steps for all the fields which you want to include in the structure.
You can include structures as substructures instead of individual fields. This is described in
You can also define fields by directly specifying the data type and length. Choose Edit
You can combine fields with direct type definitions and fields specified by a data element reference as required.
Switch back to entering data element references with Edit® Ref.DataEl.
You can make these entries by scrolling to the right and entering these values in the fields Ref. table and Ref. field.
You can find the result of the activation in the activation log, which can be displayed with Utilities® Activation log. If an error occurred when activating the structure, you go directly to the activation log.
You can assign a search help to the structure. This search help is offered on all the screen fields referring to this structure field when you press F4. Choose Goto
A dialog box appears. Enter the search help name and choose Continue. The system automatically makes a proposal for the assignment of the search help parameters to structure fields. An attempt is made to assign a structure field with the same domain to a search help parameter. If there is no such field, the assignment is not made.
You can change the system proposal (except for the search field, that is the field to which the search help was assigned) by assigning a structure field with the same data type and same field length to a search help parameter.
Choose Extras® Activation type. A dialog box appears in which you can enter the activation type required.
