MOVE EXACT # Structures
EXACT addition is used, only
compatible structures can be assigned to one another. Full compatibility is not required for the following deep components, for which the specified requirements apply:
- For components that have a reference type, up casts but not down casts are permitted.
- For table-like components, it is sufficient if the row type is compatible. This means that the full compatibility needed for table categories and table keys is not required here.
Other versions: 7.31 | 7.40 | 7.54
- When the
EXACTaddition is used, the assignment rules for flat structures are the same as those for deep structures. It is not possible to make assignments between structures and elementary data objects.
- No additional content checks are made before assignments are made for compatible structures. If
the source structure contains invalid data, this data is assigned to a compatible target structure, even when the
EXACTaddition is used.
