Handling of a data object by assuming a certain data type. Explicit casting is possible using the statement ASSIGN, using the addition ASSIGNING when editing internal tables, using various assignments of actual parameters to formal parameters, and as down casts or up casts in the assignments between reference variables. An implicit casting sometimes takes place during the handling of operands at certain operand positions.
