START CodeLocate this document in the navigation structure


The code for the START-OF-SELECTION event in a report is executed before starting any database accesses, meaning before the first data record of the highest table in the logical database hierarchy is read. The code's purpose is to initialize all the variables used when reading data from the database. Particularly additional fields or help variables that are used for filling key fields from connected additional tables can also be initialized here. Selection screen entries can also be checked. The START code is transparent to the end-user.

Choose the pushbutton Code in the InfoSet maintenance screen and the START Code field help to create or maintain START Code.

Choose Check to check your code for syntax errors.
