    To read text from STXB, you will have to issue the statement like

    IMPORT tline TO rt_lines FROM database stxb(tx) ID stxl_id.
    WHERE: stxl_id is a structure like
            TDID     LIKE STXL-TDID,
            END   OF STXL_ID.

    You can additionally take a look at FM READ_TEXT.

    Hope this helps.

      Hello Tim,

      I shall refer you to two other topics on SDN where a similar discussion has taken place.

      1. TEXT into the Cluster Tables.

      2. BasicText for a Material

      Now, you have asked whether <i>the area of the cluster table</i> matters a lot. I would say it matters the most.

      It is a way of segregating the related texts in the cluster table. Even if the all the entries in the table (eg:STXB) have the same RELID (= TX), you would have to specify that, because it is a mandatory part of the syntax for the IMPORT statement.

      Coming to understanding the import statement, when the data was entered into the cluster table, it would have been done through an EXPORT statement. You will need to find out where that EXPORT statement was issued, and use the similar structure for the data recepients in the IMPORT statement.

      Please do get back if you need more information.
