column selector

The ~ character. A column col of a data source can be addressed in a query from ABAP SQL using name~col, where name is the name of the entity in which the column is defined. This type of addressing is necessary when multiple database tables are accessed and the name of a column occurs in a number of different database tables or if two columns are compared with one another by a comparison in an SQL condition.
