How to populate the ranges using FM for the SELECTs
I am still working on the FM to create a generic extractor. I went through the debugger but I am still unable to determine how the ranges are populated. RSA3 always gives me zero values for the results.
There is a RANGE statement in the sample FM and the following statements for SELECTs
RANGES: L_R_CARRID FOR SFLIGHT-CARRID,
L_R_CONNID FOR SFLIGHT-CONNID.
LOOP AT S_S_IF-T_SELECT INTO L_S_SELECT WHERE FIELDNM = 'CARRID'.
MOVE-CORRESPONDING L_S_SELECT TO L_R_CARRID.
LOOP AT S_S_IF-T_SELECT INTO L_S_SELECT WHERE FIELDNM = 'CONNID'.
MOVE-CORRESPONDING L_S_SELECT TO L_R_CONNID.
My question is how is L_R_CONNID and L_R_CARRID populated with low and high values for the SELECT statements? I tried to find the DS 0SAPI_SFLIGHT_SIMPLE to run and see how it is set up but there is no such DS.
Would someone take the time to say something about this in several sentences? I have my own code and it seems that it is not populating the values for the SELECTs when I debug from RSA3 when I provide the low and high values.
Would I normally populate the low and high values from the InfoPackage 'Data Selection' tab once I have implemented in BW or ready to test in BW? That would mean I have to choose those fields as selections from RSO2. Anyway, I think I have asked about this but I am hoping to get an answer to get this going...
Appreciate any replies.

In our generic extractors we use 2 ways:
1. get the parameters for the load via a code that reads
a control table such as TVARV and populates the
selections for the load.
2. thru the infopckage you you can send ranges and
values as selections. Depending on how the extractor
