Hi,

I like your idea of sending screen shots. This will help to lot of people.

Component type is somthing like a data type. For any field added you have to define data type. This data type you can take referance from some other data fields. e.g. for enhacned date field you may take component as AEDAT.

Component type is related to ABAP data dictionary. Any ABAP guy will give you more and detailed information on this.

Enter the name of the type whose attributes should be used in the component in field Component name. You can enter any type (data element, structure or table type) here.

If you want to add components by entering the data type and length directly, choose Built-in type. You can now enter values for fields DTyp, Length, Dec.places, and Short description. With Component type you can switch back to the screen for entering references to existing types.

You can also enter a Reference Type in the Component Type field. If you enter a class, interface, or generic reference (ANY, OBJECT, or DATA) in the Component Type field, the R type field is set automatically. If you enter a reference type already defined in the Dictionary as a reference type, a blue arrow appears in the D type column.

If the type defined in the ABAP Dictionary or the built-in type is a reference type, set the indicator in the R Type column.

You can combine components with direct type definition and components that are defined by referencing an existing type as you like.

there is no clear explanation of component type.
