How to use LDB PNP with ABAP objects in a program


I am wondering if anybody has used the HR logical database(LDB) PNP with user defined ABAP objects in a program? I am using the FM- <b>LDB_PROCESS</b> but its not working. Also assigning PNP in the attributes section of the program -- so that I can use predefined fields from the LDB and then invoking the FM doesn't work -- throwing 'Logical database already active' error.

I suppose even with the ABAP objects and the new FM -- I should still be able to utilize the pre-defined fields of the PNP database -- and also the built in authorizations. I cannot use GET PERNR and REJECT as they give errors. I understand that the use of HR-macros (RP-PROVIDE-FROM-LAST and et al.) are not allowed as they use the table work area -- which is not allowed in ABAP-OOPS.

I would really appreciate if anyone could show me some insight regarding this. Thank you.

    Hi Kshitij

    It would be really good if we could use both together. But as I know, it is not possible. "GET pernr." is an event-like loop statement and so cannot be used in OO context. And I guess, the same restriction holds for the "LDB_PROCESS" since it uses LDB-specific processing.

    What I suggest you is to use standard and BAPI functions.

    Sorry for giving bad news...
