Table containing a shorttext describing the database tables - DD02T-Problem

Former Member

Hello,

I am printing a table describing the propertys of some database tables. I took the DDTEXT-Field in the DD02T Table. But for quite a lot tables the DD02T contains no Description in the DDTEXT-Field. But in the Data-Dictionary a short description is shown even for those tables which have not a description in DD02T-DDTEXT. I searched the sourcecode of the Dictionary-Program but had some problems identifying the corresponding lines in the sourcecode. Does anybody know a table or a functionmodule I can use getting a description for every database table. Thanks. Regards, Lars.

Hello Frédéric,

thanks for your quick answer. I made a mistake in my code. After I solved this problem, every selected table is described. Sorry and thank you for your help. Sincerely, Lars.

Hi ,

I was going through the entries of DD02T and observed some of the entries have no description in german, for example table TFAX1.

Is it possible that while querying you are not passing SY-LANGU to DDLANGUAGE and while reading ur reading the one where SY-LANGU eq 'D' ( german ).

Hi Lars,

i think that error occurs by objects, for which local system isn't the original-system: so the tables are imported from another system with another language.

->try to translate the text or use original language
