    The Black are the direct fields in the strcture and the blue came through the include structure and append structure. The includes are used by sap for the reusability purpose.

    Enhancement includes appending the extract structure along with other activities.

    • Append the extract structure with required fields

    • Enable the fields for display in the transfer structure (this will come when u save the DSafter appendings)

    • Write code in the exit to populate the newly added fields.

    Hope this will help you!!

      It depends on the type of data soruce.

      For example for transactional data EXIT_SAPLRSAP_001, For Master Data it's EXIT_SAPLRSAP_002 (go to se37 or cmod and will find all)..

      In the exit include : ZXRSAU01 you need to catch the data source and write your code by looping through the internal table for extract structure.

      like case <datasource>

      when <your data source>

      • write the code here by looping or call a custom function module to do the processing in a modular manner.

      For more details specify you exact problem. Or you can check the exit function module parameter or function module help for more reference.
