Hi all,

How do i create a CI_Include?

What is the significance between including a CI_include in a structure and APPEND-ing a structure?

Thanks

William

Hi william,

1. what i understood is that

u are talking about .INCLUDE

which appears in se11 in many tables.

2. Well,

thats nothing but a technique

of BUNCHING / GROUPING fields

(for ease of re-use)

(instead of again and again

specifying those SET of FIELDS,

in more than 1 table)

(we can as well give each field, field-by-field,

it won't make any difference in database table)

3. However,

Append structure

is FACILITY PROVIDED BY SAP

for customer enhancment of tables.

It behaves differently when

some upgrade is done in that table

by sap itself.

In such case,

when the upgrade occurs,

first the SAP fields (which are added in the standard table)

are first included in the sequence of fields,

AFTER THAT,

our APPEND structure fields,

are appended !!!

amit m.

hi William ,

Are you talking about infotype enhancement??

If so ,you enhance the infotype thru PM01. In the 3rd tab strip "Enhance IT" , choose the subobject "CI Include" and click the create button. It will open up a structure where you can add the your own fields.

Regards,

Vijay
