You can display the data in a list on the screen (select: return as list), or you can use the option of transferring the data (characteristics, attributes, and key figures) to another medium.
Store in a new DB table
If you choose this function, a new database table is generated in which the data is stored. The table format corresponds to the format, in which the data is displayed in the output list. There must not be any tables or structures with this name in either the ABAP dictionary or on the database. The new table has to be checked using the ABAP dictionary.
You can only store BasicCubes and aggregate tables as database tables
Insert into an existing DB table
When you choose this function, the data is written into a database table that already exists. The format of the table must correspond to the format of the selected data. As a rule, you choose this function after you have created, and initially filled, a database table for this specific selection. You add current data to the data that is already stored in the existing table.
Store in file (workstation)
When you choose this function, a file, in which the data is stored, is generated on your local PC. You have the option of opening the file with, for example, Microsoft Excel, Word, or Wordpad.
Store in file (application server)
When you choose this function, a new file, in which the data is stored, is generated on the application server. This option is particularly useful with large quantities of data, since this transfer method can also be run in the background. To run the transfer in the background, choose the pushbutton Execute in Batch.
Enter a name for the database table, or for the file, and choose Execute.
If you have chosen a database table, this is created in the system, and the data is transferred.
If you have chosen a file, use F4 Help in the selection screen to choose the path to where you want to save the file. Specify the data format, and choose Transfer.
