Logical database of ABAP query

Can anybody please let me know what is the Logical database for ETXDCI, ETXDCH & ETXDCJ (Tax tables) with any sales document tables? I need to develop one ABAP query for the users.
I am a Functional person so I would like to know Can anybody please let me know how I can find out the Logical database?
Your time and help will be really appreciate.
Thanks & Regards,
Niki Shah.

Try the BRF logical database.
I found it by searching in which programs the tables were used.
It show program SAPDBBRF which is the program for logical database BRF.
Kind regards,

  • Logical database in adhoc query

    Hello All,
    Can anyone tell me what is the logical database in adhoc query?

    When you create a query , you have to select an infoset. Infoset can be considered as a source from which data is populated in the Query Fields.
    Infosets are created from Transaction SQ02.
    There can be four methods through which an Infoset can become a source of data:
    1.  Table join ( By joining two or more tables from Data dictionary)
         example: Joining tables PA0001 and PA0006 on Pernr to get a one resultant dataset
    2. Direct read of Basis Table ( Like PA0001 as a source for data in Infoset )
    3. Logical Database ( A Pre-written Program by SAP that extract data from clusters, tables taking care of authorizations and validity periods)
    Example : Logical database PNP, PNPCE (Concurrent Employement),PCH ( LDB for Personnel Development Data)
    Custom Logical DBs can be created in T_Code SE-36.
    4. Data Retrieval by a Program ( Custom code written by ABAP developers which will collect and process data) . This program has a corresponding Structure in data dictionary and the fields of this structure will be used in query)
    Reward Points, if helpful.

  • Logical Database in Abap Objects

    Hi to All
    I want do it a program report using a Logical Database.
    Is this possible ??? But when I make a GET <node>, occurs the following error:
             "" Statement "ENDMETHOD" missing.  ""
    I'm doing the following:
                   GET VBRK.
    Please, somebody tell me how I use the logical database in Abap Objects.
    Thank you very much

    Hi there
    Logical databases whilst of "some use" are not really part of OO.
    If you want to use a logical database in an abap OO program I would create a special class which just does the get data from your DB and pass this either at record or table level.
    Techniques such as GET XXXX LATE aren't really part of any OO type of application since at Object Instantiation time you should be able to access ALL the attributes of that object.
    As far as OO is concerned Logical databases are a throwback to "Dinosaur Technology".
    Since however modules such as SD and FI are still heavily reliant on relational structures (i.e linked tables etc)  then there is still some limited life in this stuff but for OO try and solve it by another method.
    If you really must use this stuff in OO then do it via a FMOD call and save the data in a table which your method will pass back to your application program.
    You can't issue a GET command directly in a method.

  • Use of Logical database in ABAP Queries

    Can anybody tell me when/why do we use logical database in Infosets for ABAP Query?

    pros: -you need not to define so many own tables, fields and additional codings in your info set
    cons: - performance in huge DB's

    Welcome to SDN forum
    query has got some limitatins compared to Reports which we write using SE38
    these queries are user specific and client specific and can't be transportable and you can't write your own code as you wish like reports
    see the doc
    Step-by-step guide for creating ABAP query
    ABAP query is mostly used by functional consultants.
    SAP Query
    The SAP Query application is used to create lists not already contained in the SAP standard system. It has been designed for users with little or no knowledge of the SAP programming language ABAP. SAP Query offers users a broad range of ways to define reporting programs and create different types of reports such as basic lists, statistics, and ranked lists.
    SAP Query's range of functions corresponds to the classical reporting functions available in the system. Requirements in this area such as list, statistic, or ranked list creation can be met using queries.
    All the data required by users for their lists can be selected from any SAP table created by the customer.
    To define a report, you first have to enter individual texts, such as titles, and select the fields and options which determine the report layout. Then you can edit list display in WYSIWYG mode whenever you want using drag and drop and the other toolbox functions available.
    ABAP Query, as far as I Believe, is the use of select statements in the ABAP Programming. This needs a knowledge of Open SQL commands like Select,UPdtae, Modify etc. This has to be done only by someone who has a little bit of ABAP experience.
    To sum up, SAP queries are readymade programs given by SAP, which the user can use making slight modification like the slection texts, the tables from which the data is to be retrieved and the format in which the data is to be displayed.ABAP queries become imperative when there is no such SAP query existing and also when there is a lot of customizing involved to use a SAP Query directly
    use either SQ02 ans SQ01
    or SQVI tr code
    for more information please go thru this url:
    Please check this PDF document (starting page 352) perhaps it will help u.
    check the below link will be helpful for u

    once you create query system generates a report starting with AQZZ/SAPQUERY/ABAGENCY2======= assing this report to tr code for the same

  • Logical Databases with ABAP OO

    As we move to ABAP OO paradigm, should we abandon the use of  logical databases?
    Edited by: Kimberly Carmack on Mar 10, 2009 12:47 AM

    Thank you for your input.
    I am aware of the capability to call FM LDB_PROCESS from a method. 
    But should I? Should I avoid using LDBs altogether? In what scenario should I use an LDB in OOA/OOD?
    I am very interested in hearing more about why "implicit triggering of events, implicit calls, and data sharing between programs....is contradictory ..to OO". Will you please elaborate?
    Let me give some insight as to the source of this question...
    Our company has made an acquistion. We are converting some of their customization into our system.
    I am currently re-engineering one of their reports.  It uses data from the tables: VBAK, VBAP, VBEP, VBUK, VBUP, VBEP, VBPA and VBFA.
    Although the old program does not use logical database, I see the VAV logical database lines up with this data request quite nicely.
    And since I know that there are  several of their reports and transactions that access the same data, the reusability of the LDB is quite attractive.
    However, our company has an initiative to conduct all new development using OO standards.
    So, should I used the VAV LDB from a local method?  Or would it be better practice to look at creating a global class that has methods that repeat the functionality of the VAV LDB? 
    And if global classes and new methods is the way to go, what would that global class look like? 
    This is what I am wondering about.
    Any feedback is appreciated.

    Hi Friends,
    can i send me Creation of ABAP QUERY...

    What Is SAP Queries
    Many times a need arises for SAP Users and Functional Consultants to generate quick reports without getting any ABAP coding done – time taken to complete the coding in development, transport and test it in QA system and then transport to production – is sometimes too long. In such cases, ABAP/4 query is a tool provided by SAP for generating these kind of reports.
    Type of Report Desired:
    Before starting to write an ABAP query, its advisable to decide the type of report that the user wants. ABAP query provides the following type of reports:
    Basic List Simple report
    Statistics Report containing statistical functions like Average &Percentage
    Ranked List Report written for analytical purpose
    The output is always seen in the order of Basic List, then Statistics and then Ranked List if any. One ABAP query can have one basic list, maximum of 9 statistics and maximum of 9 ranked lists.
    In a nutshell, an ABAP/4 query can be designed in four steps
    - Creation of a user group
    - Creation of functional area
    - Assignment of user group to functional area
    - Creation of the query based on functional area
    The various objects that form an ABAP query can be created in the following 2 ways:
    - Tools => ABAP/4 Workbench => Utilities => ABAP/4 Query
    - By executing the transaction codes mentioned below:
    SQ01 ABAP/4 Query
    SQ02 Functional Area
    SQ03 User group
    Step I - Create Functional Area
    In the functional area section, the user indicates from which part of the SAP database the data is going to be retrieved and how the data is to be retrieved by the query. One functional area can be assigned to many user groups. A functional area can be created with or without a logical database. To create a functional area with a logical database, one has to mention the name of the database and then select the fields from the tables that form the logical database.
    ABAP Query Authorizations: To use an ABAP query, the user must have appropriate authorizations. Two ways of providing authorizations to the users are as follows:
    - User groups
    The user should be a part of at least one user group to run the corresponding ABAP query. This automatically restricts the access of the user to specific functional areas, and thus the corresponding underlying logical databases.
    - Authorizations
    The authorization object S_QUERY should be used to give proper authorizations to the user for a query. This authorization object has a field named ACTVT which can take values 02 for Change, 23 for Maintain and 67 for Translate.
    This value determines whether the user can create and modify the query. The possible authorizations in the object are as follows:
    S_QUERY_ALL Change, maintain and translate query
    S_QUERY_UPD Change and Translate
    Though the general concept of an ABAP query is moderately difficult, the results and the long term use of the ABAP query is worth the effort.
    Creating the ABAP Query
    To create the query use the menu path Environment => Queries
    · Give a name to the query and click on the Create button
    · Give the description of the query in the next screen. Specify the output length and select the processing option from the Further Processing Options box. The data can be displayed in various formats such as table, download to a file, and display in Word etc.
    · Click on the Next screen icon. Select the functional group screen. All the functional groups created in the functional area are displayed. Select the groups that you desire – fields from only these groups will be displayed in the output. Click on the respective check boxes and click on the Next Screen icon.
    · The Select Field screen gets displayed. Select all the fields from the user group that you need to display on the output of the query. If required, specify the short names for the fields using the menu path Edit => Short Names => Switch On/Off or you can also change the selection text contains in the order you want to appear on the selection screen. You can also maintain column headers for the fields by using the menu path Edit => Column Header => Maintain. 
    ·         Click on the Next Screen icon to get the Selections Screen. Here you can check against the fields that you require to be shown on the selection screen.
    ·         Now we need to specify the output type for the query as Basic List, Statistics or Ranked List. Choose the option Basic List.
    ·         On the Basic List line structure screen the following things can be done
    o        Specify the report layout in detail – lines on which the fields will appear.
    o        Order in which the fields will appear in the output
    o        Sort order for the fields – this is optional.
    o        For the numeric fields you can check against the fields for which you require totals in the output.
    o        Beautify the output according to the options provided.
    ·         Click on the next screen icon, to specify the control levels as mentioned below
    o        Specify the sort order. The default sort order is ascending and can be changed to descending if required.
    o        Totals for each field selected for sorting can be displayed
    o        To display the output of a field in a box click on the check box against box. To display a line after the output of a field, click on the check box against BlnkLn
    o        To display the output of a field on a new page click on the check box against New Page
    ·         Click on the next screen icon to get the List Line options Screen. Here you can specify the background color for displaying the output.
    ·         Click on the next screen icon to get the Field Output Option screen. In this you can specify the following:
    o        Change the output length or the display positions of the fields
    o        Specify the display position of the unit for quantity or currency fields. Click left radio button to display it before the figure, middle radio button to display it after the figure while last radio button to hide the unit altogether.
    o        Specify color for the column of every field under the Format option.
    o        Specify the label against the output of sort fields.
    ·         Click on the Next screen option to go to the Basic List Header screen. Here you can specify
    o        Give page header and page footer for the output
    o        Include user name and date by specifying &N and &D respectively.
    After providing all the above options you can save the query and execute it by clicking the Execute button twice

  • Query, infoset and Logical database tuning?

    Hi, All:

    then based on infoset z_query based on infoset z_infoset.
    then run the z_query, the performance is too bad.
    take long time.
    How to tuning logical database, infoset and query.

    These are what I am dealing with:
      Transaction ME80FN
      /SAPQUERY/ME, ME80FN query.
      Another way to word the question is: How can I make a copy of the global query /SAPQUERY/ME, ME80FN to have that nifty bottom toolbar that transaction ME80FN has?
      At first glance, they are the same entity... But the toolbar in the transaction and display options via the last button on the toolbar differentiate the two.

  • Logical Database

    I have the following issue:
    we need to make use of BADI 'MD_PURREQ_CHANGE' here I need to use Logical Database 'DBM' in my implimentation method. Shall we make use of Logical Databse in ABAP Objects? If yes, could you give any ideas please?
    Thanks & regards

    I tried several times, it seems that is not possible to make use of Logical Database from ABAP Objects.
    IS there any ideas?
    I am providing some more details:
    While I was testing the MRP BADI the MDTB table is not being updated with any data . OSS note 440016 says that there is a customizing setting by which you can still update the MDTB table but this would lead to performance issues (easier to query though).
    In standard SAP, MRP data is stored as an aggregated list (table is stored as a data cluster and I need an ABAP extract to get something meaningful from it) in table MDTC for improved performance.
    Does any body having an ideas on this?
    Thanks & regards

  • Logical Database for a Resource

    I'm looking to write a query in Quickview (SQVI) and I need the logical database for a Resource.  Can anyone help?

    There are two ways for this -
    1. To create the functional area with a logical database
    Tools => ABAP/4 Workbench => Utilities => ABAP/4 query => Functional Areas.
    Give the functional area name and click on Create button
    In the next screen give a brief description of the functional area
    Specify the name of the logical database, for e.g. Database FI, Application S. This will be the definition for the flight database
    Click on the button Functional Group present on the application toolbar, in order to create the functional group for the required fields from the logical database tables
    In the functional group box mention the number of the functional group and the description for the functional group
    The tables from the logical database are shown in Tables Of Logical Database/Joins while the fields are displayed in the Fields Box
    Double click on the table name in order to change the list
    Every field that has to be selected in the query should be assigned a functional group number against it
    Sometimes the list of fields in the Fields box will not be completely visible. To have a wider display of the list place the cursor in the fields box area and click on Settings => Full Screen from the SAP menu bar
    To see the fields from different tables select the table and double click on it.
    Once the required fields are selected, save the functional Area by clicking on the SAVE icon on the toolbar, and then Generate the Functional Area by clicking the Generate icon on the toolbar
    To add user defined fields to the abap query use the menu bar option GOTO => Additional Field
    Give the field name and the table name from the logical database to which the field needs to be included. Click the ENTER button.
    On the next screen give the Sequence, description, title and the technical attributes for the field (field type, length). Here you can also specify the formula for the field. Click on the SAVE button to register the data to the database.
    Remember that the sequence of the field matters – if the second field uses the first field in its code then the second field should have a higher sequence than the first. Tables can also be included – to do this use the menu option Goto => Additional Tables
    You can include your own selection criteria and parameters to control the data to be selected from the database. For these additions to get activated, code needs to be written for taking care of the additional fields.
    To display something before the execution of the actual query, go to the start of selection event via the menu path Goto => Code => Start-of-selection.
    To display something just before or after the output of the query, go to the end of selection event via the menu path Goto => Code => End-of-selection.
    To display something at the beginning of the page, go to the top of page event via the menu path Goto => Code => Top-of-page.
    After finishing everything save and generate the functional area and click on the BACK icon to come out.
    2. To create a functional area without a logical database
    One of the following can be selected
    Based on a single table
    Using an ABAP/4 program
    Using Table Joins
    Using Sequential Dataset
    The steps to be followed for creating the functional area are as follows
    Tools => ABAP/4 Workbench => Utilities => ABAP/4 query => Functional Areas.
    Give the functional area name and click on Create button
    In the next screen give a brief description of the functional area
    In the Without a logical database area give the base table on which to form the ABAP query
    To form the query with two or three tables, we need to create a join. For this check the Table Join Check Box and click on the Table Join button.
    NOTE: The tables to be used in the join should have at least one field in common i.e. it should have the same name, domain or data element.
    Mention the tables that you want to include in the join condition in the Joined Tables area and press ENTER.
    A checkbox will appear against the table names on the left side, and three radio buttons will appear against the tables on the right side specifying the join type.
    Base table name remains grayed out. Select the two tables to be involved in the join by clicking the check boxes against them. Use menu path Edit => Join => Define condition to create the join. A mapping between the tables will be displayed on the right hand side. Click on the button provided (with + and down arrow symbol) to specify the join.
    Click YES on the Proposal Requested message that gets displayed.
    If the join tables have a foreign key relationship then the common fields in the tables will be marked with 00 to indicate that the join has been created. User can create the join by specifying 00, 01 etc. against the fields that qualify for the join.
    Complete the join condition by adding more tables if necessary.
    Remaining concepts for creating the functional area without a logical database are same as the concepts for creating the functional area with a logical database.
    After finishing everything save and generate the functional area and click on the BACK icon to come out.
