    <b>%_so_wtype_%_app_%</b> looks a bit odd, but it's a valid variable in ABAP. It's obviously been defined to be a structure of some description, with one field of <b>text</b>

    So, <b>%_so_wtype_%_app_%-text = 'Wage Types'</b> means, assign the value 'Wage Types' to the text field of structure %_so_wtype_%_app_%.

    It's probably from a program that's automatically generated, or a macro or include that's used in other programs. The name is specially chosen to be odd so it doesn't clash with the names we'd normally give variables.
