What do you mean with "upload"? Data element documentation is stored in ITF format with id DE in the respective tables DOKIL, DOKHL, DOKTL. There are function modules like DOCU_GET that read such documents into internal tables. Of course you can write yourself a faster SELECT for that.

Thanks for your response,

I mean to say is there any way or function module,Etc to create data element documentation. Generally to create data element documentation we need to go to SELL->Data element name-> Then maintain documentation of respective data element or by certain transaction SE61. Instead of going through this process I need some function module or class where can create documentation.



You can use the following function module to call the editor:

     id = 'DE'
     langu = sy-langu
     object = 'S_CARR_ID'.

But this is also interactive. I don't know if there is any FM to directly load an ITF table to the database tables. Check the function modules of package SDOC, but I don't think there is a mere "upload"-function module. I myself do it with Open SQL, but for that you must be very, very careful to get all the table entries right (and therefore, I don't show it here ...).
