Street

Definition

Named traffic area together with surrounding development.

Use

If the address check against the postal regional structure is activated and the "Street directory" indicator is selected for the city, the system checks whether the street specified in the address entry exists.

Data such as the district and regional structure grouping, as well as application-specific and customer-specific data, can be stored for the street. This data can be accessed in programs for data objects that have an address. Data stored for the street or street section (see below) overrides data stored for the city.

The Street object can be accessed in the following transactions:

  • SR20 - Create street
  • SR21 - Change street
  • SR22 - Display street

or by choosing SAP Web Application Server ® Basis Services ® Address Management ® Regional Structure/City file ® Streets in the SAP Reference IMG (transaction SPRO).

Regional structure grouping

You can maintain the regional structure grouping in the SAP Reference IMG (transaction SPRO) by choosing SAP Web Application Server ® Basis Services ® Address Management ® Regional Structure/City File ® Define Regional Structure Groups.

Structure

The key of a street contains the country as well as the street number. The keys are then still unique even if the streets are created for different countries by importing data carriers with external number assignment. The street name and short names are maintained language-specifically.

Different streets with the same name are created in the system as different streets. A street that runs through several cities has to be stored several times in the system.

There is one "subobject" for a street: "Postal street sections".

  • The assignment of house number ranges to postal codes, districts, and other data can be stored under Postal street sections. Data stored here overrides data stored for the street itself or for the city.
  • Postal codes can only be maintained if the XPLST indicator is selected in the country table T005. This field can be maintained in transaction OY17 (input field "Street postal code").
