Very Very Important ABAP FAQ

1. What is the typical structure of an ABAP/4 program?

Ans https://www.stechies.com/what-is-the-typical-structure-of-an-abap4-program/

2. What are field symbols and field groups.?

Ans: Field symbols: Field symbols are like pointers. Placeholders for fields or arbitrary data objects.

Field group: A field group combines several fields under one name.

**** Have you used "component idx of structure" clause with field groups?

3. What should be the approach for writing a BDC program?

Ans.

· Analyzing data from local file.

· Analyzing transaction

· Declaring internal table

Similar to local file.

Similar to BDCDATA.

· Transferring data from local file to internal table.

· Population of BDCDATA. using call transaction/session method)

4. What is a batch input session?

Ans. In this method transfer data from internal table to database table through sessions. Session is intermediate step

between internal table & database table. Unless session is processed, the data is not transferred to the database table.

6. A situation: An ABAP program creates a batch-input session. We need to submit the program and the
batch session in background. How to do it?

Ans. You should process batch-input sessions in the foreground or using the error display if you want to test the data

transfer. If you want to execute the data transfer or test its performance, you should process the sessions in the
background. To process the sessions in the background, Set the Run mode to Background.

7. What z the diff b/n a pool table and a transparent table and how they are stored at the database level ?

Ans. From user point of view all tables are used to store data. From administrator point of view Transparent tables do
exists with the same structure both in the dictionary as well as in the database.

Pool & Clustered tables are Logical tables, which are arranged as records of transparent table. These are not

manageable directly by using database system tools.

9. How is batch input process different from processing online?

Ans. For online (Session method) external data is deposited in a session for later processing.

For inline (call transaction method) the entire batch input process takes place inline in your program.

10. What do you define in the domain and data element ?

Ans. Domain is formal definition of data types from a technical point of view. Sets attributes i.e., type, range, length .

..

type domain & table filed.

11. What are the different types of data dictionary objects?

18. What does an extract statement do in the ABAP program?

Ans. An extract dataset consists of a sequence of records. These records may have different structures. All records

with the same structure form a record type. You must define each record type of an extract dataset as a field group,
using the FIELD-GROUPS statement.

When the first EXTRACT statement occurs in a program, the system creates the extract dataset and adds the first

extract record to it. In each subsequent EXTRACT statement, the new extract record is added to the dataset.

19. What is a collect statement? How is it different from append?

Ans. COLLECT: When the line is inserted, the system checks whether there is already a table entry that matches the

20. What is Open SQL Vs Native SQL?

Ans. Open SQL allows you to access database tables declared in the ABAP Dictionary regardless of the database

platform that your R/3 System is using.

Native SQL allows you to use database-specific SQL statements in an ABAP program. This means that you can

use database tables that are not administered by the ABAP Dictionary, and therefore integrate data that is not part of
the R/3 System.

21 (a). What does an EXEC SQL stmt do in ABAP?

T2 is then known as the check table of the foreign key.

value table : when you define a domain, you already know that all fields that use the domain will need to be checked

against a particular table. You can store this information in the domain definition by specifying a value table.

· PBO (Process Before Output)

· PAI (Process After Input)

· POV(Process On value request)

· POH(Process On Help request)

PBO : The processing of screen before the screen is displayed is done in this event. (event is triggered before the

screen is displayed).

PAI : This event is responsible for processing of screen after the user enters the data and clicks the pushbutton.

POV : This is triggered when user clicks F4 function key (for listing all possible values for the field).

POH : This event is triggred when user places the cursor on field and press F1 , by default system displays its own HELP

for that particular field one can add his own HELP by writting in POH.

what are different ABAP EDITORS AND what are their differences :-

The ABAP Editor is a new dedicated tool, specialized on writing and analyzing source

code. It is a new ActiveX control written in C++ which offers all modern code editing

features.The control can be used instead of the old editor in all standard transactions as

SE80, SE38, SE24 etc. and in the new ABAP debugger from SAP_BASIS 7.0 on.

Editor's features The ABAP objects Editor is generic and works with most programming

language with defined syntax schemas, such as ABAP, eCATT, BSP etc.

The editor has customizable syntax highlighting, outlining of code (folding of blocks),

highlighting of the current scope (current block), code templates (user and language

dependant), a clipboard ring (clipboard for more then one item), incremental search,

block selection, extended pretty print functionality, embedded print preview,

customizable keyboard shortcuts etc.

The ABAP Editor has three different modes:

· Front-End Editor (source code mode - new)

· Front-End Editor (plain text mode - old)

· Back-End Editor (line-based mode)

The three editor modes are fully compatible and interchangeable. Source code created

using one mode is properly displayed by the system in all other modes.

The Source Code Mode of the Front-End Editor offers enhanced functionality over the

Plain Text Mode by allowing syntax highlighting, collapsing and expanding language

blocks, code templates, code completion and so on.

well, in my opinion, the SAP QUERY tool is a nice/fast tool to create BASIC queries,

thought for non ABAPERs.

If your query is more complex, you can still try to do it with SAP QUERIES but it

becomes far more difficult than a few select statements and an ALV presentation.

hope this helps,

86. How do you find if a logical database exists for your program

requirements?

1. open your program.

2. from menu bar select GOTO

3. from GOTO menu select ATTRIBUTES.

4. check for LOGICAL DATABASE name has given or not, If give that is your logical

database name.

69. How do you document ABAP programs? Do you use program documentation

menu option?

Either you can document using the INLINE comments, BLOCK comments that we

generally put in.

If you want a langauge dependant documentation then use the menu option Goto-
>Documentation.

Using this option we can maintain the documentaiton in multiple langauges.

For form development for an invoice list. The form for this is SD_INVOICE_LIST.

However, our customer wanted to develop the requirement in Smart Forms. There is no

standard Smart Form available for invoice and hence the option is to migrate the

SAPscript to Smart Form.
