You can create virtual fields to plan table-related analyses of custom tables and tables for which no virtual fields have yet been created.

Table Analysis (transaction TAANA) extracts information from the data fields in the table. For example, you can extract the year and month from a date field.


To create a virtual field:

  1. Select a managed system.

  2. Select whether you want to create a virtual field containing a year or a month value.

  3. Enter the table and field for which you want to create the virtual field.

  4. Choose Create.
