Message Class:

Messages allow you to communicate with users from your programs. They are mainly used when the user has made an invalid entry on a screen.

To send messages from a program, you must link it to a message class. Each message class has an ID, and usually contains a whole set of message. Each message has a single line of text, and may contain placeholders for variables.

All messages are stored in table T100. You create and edit them using Transaction SE91. Once you have created a message, you can use it in the MESSAGE statement in a program.

Text Element:

Text element maintenance is a tool in the ABAP Workbench that makes it easier to maintain program texts in different languages. Any text that a program displays on the screen can be maintained as a text element.
