Logical Databases (Obsolete)

Other versions: 7.31 | 7.40 | 7.54


  • Logical databases should no longer be used as they are based on cross-program usage of global data, implicit subprogram calls and reporting event control, which means that they do not comply with modern concepts. No new logical databases should be created. Instead a relevant service should be made available using a global class.

  • The function module LDB_PROCESS can be used to access existing logical databases. This function module can be also called from a method.
