        sign   TYPE c LENGTH 1,
        option TYPE c LENGTH 2,
        low    LIKE dobj,

      END OF rtab.

Declares an internal table rtab with the structure of a selection table and a header line. Without the addition OCCURS, the initial memory requirement of the ranges table is set to ten rows. The addition OCCURS can be used to specify a numeric literal or a numeric constant n to determine a different initial memory requirement.
