Value ranges within domains, are simply the default values. So if this domain has values in the domains and then tied to a data element, and the DE is tied to a field in a table, and the field in the table is tied to a PARAMETERS statement in a selection screen, then when the user does F4 on the field, these values are automatically brought along as input help.

A domain defines a value range. A domain is assigned to a data element. All table fields or structure components that use this data element then have the value range defined by the domain.

<b>The value range of a domain is defined by specifying a data type and length (and number of decimal places for numeric data types).</b>

The value range of a domain can be restricted by defining fixed values. If all the fields or components that refer to the domain should be checked against a certain table, this table can be defined as the value table of the domain.
