The programs and program extracts outlined in the ABAP keyword documentation are syntax examples and are not intended for use in a production system environment. The purpose of the source code examples is to enable a better explanation and visualization of the syntax and semantics of ABAP statements. SAP does not guarantee either the correctness or the completeness of the code. In addition, SAP takes no legal responsiblity or liability for possible errors or their consequences, which occur through the use of the example programs.

The database tables of the flight data model used in the example programs can be filled using the program SAPBC_DATA_GENERATOR.
