Local table types Usage?

832 Views

Hi,

While going through the Advanced ABAP document, I found that we can declare a line type using the TYPES statement and using this line type we can declare a local table type.

TYPES:

BEGIN OF gty_ekbe, "Data from EKBE.

matnr TYPE ekbe-matnr,

werks TYPE ekbe-werks,

bwart TYPE ekbe-bwart, "Movement type

bpwes TYPE ekbe-bpwes, "Blocked stock

END OF gty_ekbe.

TYPES: gtty_ekbe TYPE STANDARD TABLE OF gty_ekbe

WITH NON-UNIQUE KEY matnr werks.

DATA:

gt_ekbe_s TYPE STANDARD TABLE OF gty_ekbe

WITH NON-UNIQUE KEY matnr werks,

gt_ekbe_tty TYPE gtty_ekbe.

My Query:

What is the significance of this..? I can declare a internal table using the Line type, then what extra we are achieving by declaring a local table type?

Please provide your opinions.

Regards
