1. What is the typical structure of an ABAP program? //ABAP程序的基本结构是什么？
2. What are field symbols and field groups.? Have you used "component idx of structure" clause with field groups?
在ABAP/4 程序中，字段符号是现有字段的占位符。字段符号本身不直接为字段保留空间， 而只是指向一个字段（ 该字段在程 序运行前还未可知）。 字段符号可以与程序语言C 中的指针概念相比较（ 即，用内容 操作符 * 表示的指针 ）。然而， 在 ABAP/4 中，从变量的意义上说，与指针不是真正等价的，此处，变量包含内存地址，并且不用内容操作符即可使用。您只 能使用字段符号指向的数据对象。
摘录数据集由一系列记录组成。这些记录可以有不同的结构。所有具有相同结构的记录形成 一个记录类 型。必须使用 FIELD-GROUPS 语句将摘录数据集的每 个记录类型定义为字段组。
3. What should be the approach for writing a BDC program? //写BDC程序的一般步骤是什么
STEP 1: CONVERTING THE LEGACY SYSTEM DATA TO A FLAT FILE to internal table CALLED "CONVERSION".
