    Hi

    same data element can be used for multiple table fields.

    It has more than one domain(data type).

    Lets try by using SE11

    Thanks,

    chandu.

    Data element itself is an individual data dictionary object.If you want to know where it is used, then goto SE84->Data Dictionary->Data Elements.Type the data element name and hit F8. It will give a list of structure/tables where it is used.

    HI

    your refering that feild to a dataelement so the fetures of that dataelement will apply for that filed not the values of the table

    suppose if you declare that filed as char then fom which table it will get the data

    so in that step your not getting the data from the table , just your refering to that dataelement field where all the features which applicable to your filed is same as that dataelement not values of the table

    Hi ,

    Go to SE11. There type this data element name "gsmng" against data type tab. Go inside and press on where used button.

    You can come to know where all this Data Element is used.

    But to find from where field pdtpp is being taken you need to search this field in your program. Looking at the logic you should be able to find from where this field is being fetched.

    Hema,

    IF you declare with table field also it will take the structure(data type) from data element only.

    It is not taking any data from particular table when you declare

    PARAMETERS (OR ) SELECT-OPTIONS.

    So no problem.

    If you want to know where used list of dataelement

    GO TO tcode SE11

    select data type radio button enter data element name

    select where used list you will get the table where ever this dataelement used.

    Don't forget to reward if useful....

    Hi,

    You can take the data element and then go to transaction se11 and then search for the Data Element and the whee used list of that data element in Tables . It would give the table where the data element is taken from.

    Kindly reward if helpful.

    Regards,

    Vijay
