Any time in a database, when u see the value 'X' in a single character field, that is nothing but a flag
it is used to mark certain things
for example in the t001 table, you will see many flags such as
XFMCO - Indicator: Project Cash Management active?
XFMCB - Indicator: Cash budget management active
XFMCA - Activate Update in Funds Management
as you can see by their description, they are used to indicate various things
to declare a flag as a variable or an internal table field is very simple since character type and one character length are taken as default
By their declaration, flags can hold any character, however practically they only hold 'X' or ' '.
