SAP Scripts - Grouping Text

In SAP Scripts, grouping text provides a better handling of the texts and also facilitates control of internal processes in scripting. Text consists of text objects and text ID’s.

Text Object

Text object can be linked to objects in other business application and defines contextual relation. Apart from this, text objects are also used to determine different processing parameters. When you save a text module, it depends on the object if a text module should be directly written to the text database or not.

Text objects and their respective attributes in SAP Script are defined in the TTXOB table.

Text ID

To differentiate between texts of an object, you need a grouping attribute that is called in SAP Script and is known as Text Id. Text IDs are used to identify different texts describing the same text object. Text IDs and their attributes must be defined in the TTXID table.

As one text is not enough for an object, to define several characteristics of an object you need several texts which are identified by text IDs.

To manage application-specific form texts, applications define their own text objects with subordinate text IDs using Transaction code SE75.
