In the SAP system, texts do not end in themselves but are usually linked with other business application objects. For example, one text describes a material in detail while another text contains a special agreement concerning an order. Such texts make sense only in connection with the allocated object, since they refer to a certain material or a certain order.
Apart from a contextual relation, these objects also determine certain processing parameters, which the SAPscript functions must consider. For example, when saving a text module, it depends on the object whether the module is directly written to the text database or whether the update task is used.
In the SAPscript environment, these objects are called text objects. Being allocated to a text object is an essential attribute of a text module.
The possible text objects and their respective attributes must be defined in table TTXOB.
