You use the Data tab to select data from internal tables for a table node or a loop node or a complex section.
If you mark the radio button in the left upper edge of the tab page, you deactivate the entire tab. In this case, you do not select any data and use the node in the same way as a
At runtime the system selects the data according to your settings. After processing the loop, the output area contains the last entry selected (or the field symbol points to this entry).
You can use the second table control of the Data tab to sort the table output by fields of the internal table. The sequence in which you enter the field names into the table control determines the sorting sequence. To change it later, you can use the black arrows above the control. Use the radio buttons to specify whether to sort the field in ascending or in descending order.
For technical reasons SAP Smart Forms cannot see whether the internal table was sorted before (for example, in the application program). If it was, you must still enter the sorting sequence into the table control and mark
A break in a sort level results from the sort process whenever the value of a sorted field changes from one line to the other. The blocks in which the value of the field remains constant are sort levels.
If you want to display output before or after a sort level changes, mark Event on Sort Begin or Event on Sort End. Then in the tree structure an event node appears for which you can create inferior nodes to display output at these events (for example, subtotals).
