Background documentation BAS Tables 

All addresses are stored in tables of Business Address Services. To be able to access addresses later on, the application stores only the key of an address in its application table.

Note

Some applications that used to store address data in their own tables in previous releases still do so and keep the address data redundantly in their own tables.

The application program never accesses the BAS tables directly, but uses function modules to access addresses. Using the table entries, however, you can verify if the address data has been updated correctly. The address data is stored in three tables:

Tables of Business Address Services for address data

Table

Type

Address data

of address type 1

of address type 2

of address type 3

ADRC

Address table

Company name and postal address

Postal address

Company address for person

ADRP

Person table

None

Personal data (such as last name and first name)

Personal data (such as last name and first name)

ADCP

Assignment of persons to addresses

None

None

Workplace data

An address number in table

ADRC or a person number in table ADRP is unique. However, both a person number and an address number can occur more than once in table ADCP . A person number occurs more than once if a person has multiple addresses, and an address number occurs more than once if a company address is referenced by multiple persons.

Note

The numbers are only unique in one client of a system. For more information, see the section Uniqueness of Address Numbers in

Transports Prior to Release 4.6.

Assignment of Persons to Addresses

When you create personal or workplace addresses, BAS store the personal data and the address data separately. Using an entry in table

ADCP , BAS assign the address data to the person:
  • A record of the table contains the person number and the associated address number.
  • Field
COMP_PERS has either value 'C' (company address, address type 3) or 'P' (personal address, address type 2).
