Error: The work area or internal table is not structured

I have made a local structure in my report program but when I am using it to fetch data, etc, I am getting this error message as mentioned in the headline.

What could be the possible reason for this?

    Hi Manan,

    You can check sequence of structure field and select query.

    Also check once internal table and work area declaration.

    Hi Manan,

    Please check if the Internal table and the Workarea are type compatible.

    We cannot use any kind of structures (e.g. deep structures) as work area to fetch data from database, certain prerequisites must be verified.

    So check definition of work-area (SELECT INTO) or lines of internal table (SELECT APPENDING or INTO TABLE)

    Regards,

    If you are passing the work area to a form and fetching the data in that form, you have to provide the structure in the form parameters.
