Dictionary DDL for Structure Definitions

In the ABAP Development Tools (ADT), a structure can be displayed and modified using source-code-based methods in the Dictionary DDL. Here, the source code of a structure is not saved and transported. Instead, the source code of an existing structure is generated from the metadata of the associated system tables. When saved, the metadata is derived directly from the source code and saved to the system tables.

Other versions: 7.31 | 7.40 | 7.54


All properties of a structure described in the preceding sections can be defined using DEFINE STRUCTURE or in transaction SE11.
