    Hi S,

    Global data types let you to use one specified type definition to your field values.

    Eg: you have several interfaces and in all of them, you have name as a field.

    so instead of giving different lengths and types each time, declare a gdt and make this as a type def to your name.

    Coming to usage, instead of specifying the standard types, select your gdt from Call search help for data type or press on Ctrl + Shift + Q

    refer to follwoing link ...

    global-data-types

    Regards,

    Venkat.
