Messages in List Processing
In list processing, a message of type "W" is always converted to type "E" before further context-dependent handling takes place. The message is then handled in accordance with the other context.
List processing is active in the following contexts with respect to messages:
- In all executable programs called using
SUBMIT, as long as no dynpro sequence called using
CALL SCREENis being processed there.
- After list processing is called explicitly using
LEAVE TO LIST-PROCESSING in a dynpro sequence. The statement
LEAVE LIST-PROCESSINGswitches list processing off during a dynpro sequence.
In programs called using
SUBMIT, list processing is active, therefore, apart from when actual
list events are being handled (even when
reporting events are
being handled). This is especially true for the standard event
Other versions: 7.31 | 7.40 | 7.54
Background jobs are always started using
SUBMIT, which means that list processing is usually also active at the same time.
