significance of STAT field in JEST table

In one of my report I need to extract the status of a equipment from JEST table, the field is STAT. Incidentally the table contains other two fields INACT and CHGNR.

I am not getting the meaning and significance of each of the fields in this JEST table. Can anyone tell me the significance of this STAT field and its possible set of values.

Please help me. It is a bit urgent.

Thanks in advance.

    If you need to extract the status of a particular object, you can try using FM: STATUS_READ with the object number and 'X' for Only Active. Coming to your question, Field INACT of table JEST identifies whether the status is currently active or inactive. Field CHGNR determines the sequence in which the status'es are changed. Possible set of values determines on the Status Profile which is configurable and differs from System to System. Check in table TJ30 with the status profile to know the various status'es defined for the profile. For their descriptions you can check table: TJ30T or alternatively you can try view V_TJ30T. So for your sequence i would advice:

    1. Execute FM: STATUS_OBJECT_READ with Object Number to retreive the status profile.
    2. Execute FM: STATUS_READ to extract the active status of the object.
    3. Extract the description of the status from table TJ30T with the status profile and status.
    Hope that helps.
