    While adding or retrieving records to / from internal table we have to keep the record temporarily in Work area and Process(work) there.

    The area where this record is worked is called as work area for the internal table. The area must have the same structure as that of internal table. An internal table consists of a body and an optional header line.

    The header line / Workarea is a field string with the same structure as a row of the body, but it can only hold a single row.

    It is a buffer used to hold each record before it is added or each record as it is retrieved from the internal table. It is the default work area for the internal table.

    Use field symbols for better performance in internal tables.

    Hope this helps
