@ DATA ELEMENTS V/S BUILT IN DATA TYPES

Hi,

I have 15 fields in a custom table. All the fileds need to hav a definition of char- lt 2.

But the Description i each differs only wrt to the NUMBER sequence.

eg. level 1, level 2...level 15.

Now what is a recommended way to go about it.

Should we define 15 different DATA ELEMENTS for the same, resulting in 15 new objects in the dictionary.

OR should I go in for a simple Built In data type.

I know data elements have advantages when it comes to a. F4 help and Table Maintainance. Is the advantage so significant that we can do with 15 additional objects?

Please Advice.
