Hi Venkat,

Please check these.

Vertical lines | between parts of statements mean that only one of the parts listed within a statement must be used. Lines are not a part of ABAP syntax.

Example:

DDMMYY | MMDDYY | YYMMDD

Curly brackets { } group together related parts of statements, for example, on the right or left of vertical lines. Curly brackets are not part of ABAP syntax.

Example:

{NO EDIT MASK}|{EDIT MASK mask}

Regards,

Ferry Lianto
