System Classes for Data Clusters

As well as the statements IMPORT and DELETE you can, if necessary, use the methods of the following classes:


These subclasses of the abstract system class CL_ABAP_EXPIMP add to the functions of the statements for data clusters. They allow you to access data clusters in the individual storage media, of which only parts of the identifier id or of the area ar are specified, by determining the complete key. In addition, you can delete data clusters generically using partly specified keys.

Other versions: 7.31 | 7.40 | 7.54


In application programs in multitenancy systems, the parameter CLIENT of the methods of the classes for accessing data clusters in database tables or in the shared memory in application programs of application clients cannot be given a value. These programs can only work with data from the current client.
