Data Definition Language. Subset of SQL. DDL statements create and delete the objects of a relational database. ABAP SQL does not support DDL. ABAP-managed database objects are edited using tools and frameworks in AS ABAP, such as ABAP Dictionary, ABAP CDS, and AMDP. Objects in ABAP CDS, and some objects in ABAP Dictionary, have their own CDS DDL or Dictionary DDL. The scopes of these DDLs include SQL and add to it.
