FIELD-GROUPS (ABAP Keyword)

FIELD-GROUPS is a keyword used in SAP ABAP programming.This tutorial covers its introduction & syntax details.

FIELD-GROUPS

Basic
form
FIELD-GROUPS fg.

 

Effect
Defines a field group.

A field
group combines several existing fields together under one name. You use the
INSERT statement to determine which fields belong to a field group at
runtime.

Example

FIELD-GROUPS: HEADER, ORDER,
PRODUCT.

Note
Neither defining a field group (statically)
using FIELD-GROUPS nor filling a field group (dynamically) with INSERT generates
more memory. Rather, there exists for each field group element a pointer to an
(existing) field.
