3.1.1 Development of the context

Unlike SFP, here understanding of context simplified.

In the XLSX Worbkench, context is a variable (structure of int.table), that printing program pass to function module 'ZXLWB_CALLFORM' as parameter. Context provides (to the form) data required for resultant file compilation.

Thus, any structure or internal table (declared in the printing program) You can use as context. Upon condition: context must refer to an ABAP data dictionaty type (transaction SE11).

Every row which embedded in context can contain simple fields providing values, also can contain nested structures/tables (if required). Number of nested levels are not limited.


Available components for the context:

·         Structure

·         Table

·         Elementary field (predefined Elementary ABAP Types)
