Obsolete Syntax



The addition NO DATABASE SELECTION of the statement SELECT-OPTIONS is only possible in an executable program that is connected to a logical database and controls the passing of the selection table to the logical database in the following situations:

  • It is used in an executable program that is associated with a logical database.
  • A component of a node in the connected logical database is specified for dobj after the addition FOR and is declared in the program with a TABLES or NODES statement.
  • The node in the logical database is designed for dynamic selections.

If this addition is specified, the selection table is not passed to the logical database as a dynamic selection after selection screen processing.


If logical databases are no longer used, this addition of the statement SELECT-OPTIONS no longer needs to be used either.
