define internal table as attribute in model

0 Kudos

Hi everybody,

I have to read out some data from a database and store it into an internal table.

The internal table is filled from the do_request method of a controller.

After this the internal table shall be passed to a view.

Now my problem is that I don't know how to define an internal table as an attribute

in the model class.

Can you help me?

Best regards

Hi Alberto,

One thing that you can do is declare an attribute as


and then in the class declare an internal table say <b>gt_tab</b>, exactly of the same type as in the controller.....

Then just pass the table from the controller to I_TABLE, and the do

gt_tab = I_TABLE.

But you will have to use the exact same type, else it will give error stating that <b>Two internal tables are neither compatible nor convertible.</b>

Another way to do this is declare a structure and table type in the data dictionary and then use that table type in attributes......

Hope this helps.

Now I tried this in the model class.

I have declared the internal table as an attribute and the line for teh internal table

as a type. But I get an error when I test the program.

Here is the code from the model class:

class ZCL_MODEL_DATA definition


inheriting from CL_BSP_MODEL


create public .

" public components of class ZCL_MODEL_DATA

" do not include other source files here!!!

public section.


BEGIN OF line_spfli,

links type string,

carrid TYPE spfli-carrid,

END OF line_spfli..


ITAB type TABLE of line_spfli .

Hi Alberto,

In the attributes of the MODEL create a reference table like..

itab type SPFLI_TAB.

This should resolve your problem.
