Database programs

How are logical database used

1.Logical databases when generating an ABAP program

The selectionscreen generated contains the selections (SELECT-OPTIONS AND PARAMETERS) of both the logical database and the program.

The only database-specific selections displayed on the selection screen arethose needed by the program for data retrieval purposes

2. Logical databases at run-time of an ABAP program

At run-time, the system processes the events in the program and in the logicaldatabase in the following order

Before displaying the selection screen, certain initializations (e.g. calculating default values such as key date, etc.) are performed for the selection screen by thelogical database and the program.
The selection screen is displayed and the user enters data in the input fields.

The logical database and the program check that the input is correct and complete, but also that the user has the appropriate authorizations. If an error occurs, some fields are made ready for input again, so that the user can make the necessary correction(s).

In the eventSTART-OF-SELECTION, the ABAP program performs any preliminary work (for ex, importing files).

The logical database reads the selected data and the program processes it within the GET events...
