Text Memory and CALL Mode  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

The text memory is part of the ABAP memory. This means that the system keeps its contents whenever the application program calls a transaction (CALL TRANSACTION, SUBMIT AND RETURN or CALL DIALOG). Apart from transactions, this applies for reports or dialog modules as well. All programs in this CALL hierarchy called by the application program use the same text memory and thus have access to the same texts.

If one of these called programs executes a COMMIT_TEXT, the system transfers all texts to the update task, even those texts that do not belong to that particular program. In such a case, you can use the parameters OBJECT, NAME, ID, and LANGUAGE to specify exactly the texts you want to transfer. You can also use generic names. All other texts, which do not match the selection criteria, remain unchanged in the text memory. If they are changed, you must use other COMMIT_TEXT calls to pass them to the update task.
