how to extract data fields from a screen and find what database tables it used?

Hi All,

I have a requirement to extract the data fields(attributes) from any screen and tell what database tables those fields come from by looking at the odata metadata properties. Please suggest me a way to do it.

    Hi Madhawa,

    I think this requrirement needs to be created as a new service implementation within the Gatewaymodel and then within the DPC may be you can use the get_entityset method to read the meta data of the ABAP Dictionary objects.( for example a structure or a table). There are some quite good amount of function modules to read the details of the table or structures. for example DDIF_NAMETAB_GET.
