    If you check your program a little further, you might find that this SELECT is nested within a SELECT of the regular view zv_pa0900. It allows two cursors to be open for a table at one time.

    It's obsolete and documented in obsolete TABLES statement (F1).

    Hi,

    Here *zv_pa0900 is working as a work area ie structure.

    *table is the convension for declaring work area.
