LEAVE TO TRANSACTION  Syntax Diagram

Short Reference

Syntax

LEAVE TO { {TRANSACTION ta} | {CURRENT TRANSACTION} }
         [AND SKIP FIRST SCREEN].


Addition:

... AND SKIP FIRST SCREEN

Effect

The statement LEAVE TO TRANSACTION calls either the transaction whose transaction code is contained in data object ta, or the current transaction. The data object ta must contain the transaction code in uppercase.

When CURRENT TRANSACTION is specified, the current transaction is called using the transaction code that was used to call the transaction using CALL TRANSACTION or LEAVE TO TRANSACTION. This transaction code is contained in the system field sy-tcode except for parameter transactions or variant transactions. When using parameter actions or variant transactions, their transaction code is used for the call and sy-tcode contains the name of the implicitly called dialog transaction.

When using LEAVE TO TRANSACTION, the current call sequence is exited completely. Upon completion of the called transaction, the runtime environment returns to the position where the first program in the call sequence was called. The current SAP LUW is thereby ended.

When the transaction is called, the ABAP program associated with the transaction code is loaded in a new internal session. All previous internal sessions are deleted from the stack. At the same time, the ABAP memory is deleted, which means that EXPORT FROM MEMORY or IMPORT TO MEMORY do not transfer data when using LEAVE TO TRANSACTION.

The steps of the called dialog transaction or OO transaction are the same as with CALL TRANSACTION. When the called transaction is exited, the runtime environment returns to the position where the first program in the current call sequence was called.

If the transaction specified in ta is not found, or if ta is initial or blank, the stack of the current call sequence is deleted and the runtime environment returns directly to the position where the first program in the current call sequence was called. If ta is not initial, an appropriate message appears in the status bar.

The LEAVE TO TRANSACTION statement always terminates the current call sequence, regardless of whether or not a new transaction can be called.

Contrary to the statement CALL TRANSACTION, the authorization of the current user for executing the called transaction is always automatically checked by the authorization object S_TCODE when using the statement LEAVE TO TRANSACTION.
