    Hi

    Flags are nothing but a single CHAR fields

    We define them as SIngle char field s and use it in the code depending on the requirement.

    it is just similar to a condition based value of a single char field

    Hi,

    Any time in a database, when u see the value 'X' in a single character field, that is nothing but a flag

    it is used to mark certain things

    for example in the t001 table, you will see many flags such as

    XFMCO - Indicator: Project Cash Management active?

    XFMCB - Indicator: Cash budget management active

    XFMCA - Activate Update in Funds Management

    as you can see by their description, they are used to indicate various things

    to declare a flag as a variable or an internal table field is very simple since character type and one character length are taken as default

    data: lv_flag,

    By their declaration, flags can hold any character, however practically they only hold 'X' or ' '.
