Hi all,

In the Functional Specification, which table name am i supposed to provide to the ABAP developer? Is it transperant table name or Database table name ? What is the difference between transperant table and Database table?

Also there is Selection/Parameter coloumn in the specification for a custom report. What does Selection/Parameter mean?

Any help is highly appreciated.

Thanks,

Avani.

Hi Neetha,

You should provide Transparent Table name. Transparant Table Name and Data Base Table name are same.

Selection/Parameters means, In the selection screen the input fields should be as ranges or single value.

Hi,

Database table and transparent table...more or less same in terms of data retrieval.

You just give form which table you need data ( Like EKKO, VBAK etc)

Selection parameters: This is some thing like filter/criteria mechanism.

Will take example of SE16, If you want to see table contents...you will provide some inputs right like for EKKO table ebeln, matnr like...

Same thing for Report as well.

Hope this clarifies you.

The functional specs are just that - a description from the user's perspective of what the program should do. The technical specs are built from the functional specs by someone who "speaks both languages". They will contain things like table names and selection parameters.
