Handle concept in LIPSPO

Former Member
0 Kudos

Dear All,

Today i come across with one strange scenario.

In table LIPSPO, we have field HANDLE_ITEM (Worldwide unique key for LIPS-VBELN & LIPS_POSNR) and field HANDLE_OBJ (Worldwide unique key for LIKP-VBELN).

In LIPS table, we have field HANDLE. We are fetching our inbound delivery based on HANDLE_ITEM from table LIPSPO.

The relation is -

LIPSPO-HANDLE_ITEM = LIPS-HANDLE.

The content of field handle is 2Ow3HKxklvRX0011nj3ODG.

Could anyone please tell me what is the concept behind handle field and why we have to maintain this fields?

Thanks in advance for your kind help.

Regards,

Tarun

The handle is nothing but a unique GUID.

GUID are moslty generated by SAP in order to uniquely identify a line item.

In this case it is to identify - Worldwide unique key for LIPS-VBELN & LIPS_POSNR.

Moslty this would be used when multiple systems are connected and a uniqueness needs to be obtained. Technically can also be used for better querying(faster responses). This is my understanding
