    Hi,

    this is just a name, no special attribute in ABAP.

    Might be translated with 'encapsulation' - to build a 'black box' around something, so that further users of a functionality don't need to know all details when programming.

    E.g.: smartforms have dynamic FM names. One wrapper FM can combine FM of dynamic name determination and actual call of smartform.

    Maybe there are different understandings in other circumstances.

    Regards,

    Christian

    • Additionally what Christian said, may be you have a Function Module, which is not RFC-enabled. Instead of modifying it, you can build a wrapper FM, which is RFC enabled.

      So, you reuse SAP standard FMs with adding functionality (RFC enable, additional checks, etc) without any modification.
