Field Symbols for the Work Area Table/View

The following field symbols are filled for each maintenance dialog:

  • <TABLE1>: work area, i.e. the current screen values of all fields in the current table/view. In the functions 'New entries' and 'Copy' these values are not yet in the internal tables TOTAL and EXTRACT.
  • <F1>: <TABLE1> key
  • <INITIAL>: initialize table/view work area.
  • <ADDRESS_NUMBER>: current entry work area address number, provided that the table/view address field is assigned to the domain ADRNR.

The following field symbols are only filled if the maintenance dialog is based on a table with a text table, and the tables are linked by the foreign key relationship TEXT.

  • <TABLE1_TEXT>: current screen values of the work area of the text table read for the current table. In the functions 'New entries' and 'Copy' these values are not yet in the internal tables TOTAL and EXTRACT.
  • <TEXT_KEY>: <TABLE1_TEXT> key
  • <TEXT_INITIAL>: initialize text table read work area.
