TABLES: *ZTABLE.

Hi,

I'm new to ABAP and hopefully someone can help me by explaining what is the actual intended usage of the above statement?

Basically what is the main difference between these 2 statements below

1. TABLES *ZTABLE; and

2. TABLES ZTABLE?

Thanks in advance.

Rgds,

Michael M. Woo

    It just another internal table with different name.

    In SAP standard programs normally it's used for the following purpose:

    In change mode in ZTABLE you have the old values, in the *ZTABLE you have the new values, what the user entered, so the program can compare if anything was changed or not.
