Difference between length and output length of a data type in SAP

1198 Views

I've seen this article

https://help.sap.com/doc/abapdocu_731_index_htm/7.31/en-US/abenwrite_output_length.htm

but I still don't quite understand what the output length is trying to achieve for a data type or a domain. The length is fairly straightforward and indicates how many characters or numerals the type has but the output length is unclear.
