Union operator between tables

Hi everyone

I need to merge the data from two omogenous tables (be aware: two tables not two data services; the tables are populated by the user). I specifically need to do this client-side.

When I try to connect the out port of a table to the union operator, the input ports of the operator are grayed out.

I assume the union operator can be used only to merge data from data services: has anyone faced this issue before?

Thanks

    Hi Vincenzo,

    this is where you reach some limitations in the Visual Composer.

    The union operator is made to work on data services, not on tables.

    The only ways to solve this are either to use another tool (WebDynpro) or to make use of a data service that would perform the necessary operation for you (creating a specific RFC or Web Service).

    Rgds,

    Karim

    Hi you can use a workaround. You can send both tables to an ABAP RFC function module which merges your data and return a merged table back to VC.

    Best Regards,

    Marcel

    Thank you both, I just wanted to ensure that nothing could be achieved with VC alone before calling for reinforcements.
