How do I get the field labels of database tables that contain IMG info?


Hi everybody,

I have this requirement of getting all the data from the IMG menu nodes and downloading them onto my system. While I was at this task, I found that the entries you see when you click on any one of the IMG nodes has field labels that may not be consistent with the data dictionary definition.

When I go into the corresponding database table to find the field label, it gives me the text in Short, Medium & Long format. However, when I display entries of the database table through SE16, the field labels are not consistent with the short/medium/long format of text. Sometimes it picks Medium or Long or Short text format.

My question is, is there any function module or database table which we can use to get consistent field labels ?

Would appreciate responses from all you experienced ABAP folks out there. Thanks much !
