    the SAP system, texts do not end in themselves but are usually linked with other business application objects. For example, one text describes a material in detail while another text contains a special agreement concerning an order. Such texts make sense only in connection with the allocated object, since they refer to a certain material or a certain order.

    Apart from a contextual relation, these objects also determine certain processing parameters, which the SAPscript functions must consider. For example, when saving a text module, it depends on the object whether the module is directly written to the text database or whether the update task is used.

    In the SAPscript environment, these objects are called text objects. Being allocated to a text object is an essential attribute of a text module.

    The possible text objects and their respective attributes must be defined in table TTXOB.

    Duplicating texts

    If a text is duplicated, the system creates a copy of the text. If you change the original text, this has no effect on the text in the follow-up document.

    You can also change the copied text without affecting the corresponding text in a preceding or follow-up document.

    Referencing texts

    If a text is referenced, then it only appears once in the database: In the documents in which the text appears, the original text is merely referred to as a reference. If you change the reference text later, the referenced text is automatically changed with it.

    As soon as you change a referenced text, the system automatically deletes the reference to the relevant reference text. The text is then duplicated and becomes an independent text, which is no longer affected by changes made to the reference text.

    The reference remains lifted, if you change a text and then undo the changes again later.
