Language Environment

ABAP programs can be programmed so that they can be executed in different language environments without changing the source code. The language environment of a program includes:

  • a language-dependent text pool that contains the text elements of an ABAP program
  • the language-dependent text environment that determines the locale and the system code page
  • country-specific formatting settings that determine the format of numbers, date outputs, and time outputs.

Other versions: 7.31 | 7.40 | 7.54
