asXML - Mapping of Internal Tables
The asXML representation of internal tables is mainly relevant for XSL transformations. In simple transformations, this representation is important only when using the statement tt:copy.
The rows of an internal table are represented in asXML as a sequence of subelements of the table element. The content of each subelement matches the canonical representation of the row value. The name of a subelement is not relevant. If the canonical XML representation is created by a serialization, the name from ABAP Dictionary is used, if applicable; otherwise the name is item. All table categories are allowed. Serializations do not copy any information about the table category to the XML document. If the target field of an XSL transformation is a sorted table, the rows are sorted accordingly in the deserialization.
