Background documentation Text Tables  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

As well as the translations of system objects, the system also contains a large number of language-specific texts that are stored in text tables.These text tables are usually Customizing tables or system tables.

Unlike objects that have a directory entry, the content of these tables does not have a unique assignment to a package or software component. 

The following steps are performed when you transport text tables:


       1.      All texts are exported in your chosen language. The relevant transport object is LANG TABU <table name>.

       2.      If the text table is client-specific, then texts are taken only from the client where the export was started.

       3.      The content of the text table is assigned to the same package as the table itself.
