Introduction: - Displaying the table contents dynamically as per table name mentioned on selection

screen with help of field symbols. If user enters MARA, then the data from MARA table is retrieved.
If VBAK, then VBAK data is shown.
2. Steps:-
Declare two parameter variables as below:-

Create a field symbol as below:-

Initially check whether table exists or not.

If table exists in database then by using create data statement create the data object and assign the
reference to data object of w_dref reference variable.

Now assign the reference variable to field symbol as below:

In runtime after assign statement the <t_itab> structure will be same as table name entered on selection
screen.
Now select the data from database and put it in field-symbol (dynamic internal table).

Now create the field catalog by using the function module .

Display the data by using function module as below:-

Example:-
Give table name as mara on selection screen and no of records as 100 and press
F8.
List is displayed as below:

Now give table name as VBAK and press F8.

3. Summary:-
The importance of this tutorial is to display the data as per table name mentioned on selection screen
by user with Field symbols concept.
a) First declare the two parameters one for table name and other for no of records to be displayed.
b) Declare the field symbol of type standard table.
c) Check table name given on selection screen exists or not.
d) Create the internal table at runtime and select the data from table and place it in dynamic internal table
(Field symbol).
e) Create the field catalog and display the data.
