Append and Insert

I am not clear with the difference between append and insert. Hence append is one which add a particular tuple into last of an internal table but while using insert also it gives the same while using at programmiing. So, please clear this concept.

Both Append and Insert are used for the Internal Tables ...

But Append only apeends a REcord at Last in the ITab.. But Insert using Insetrt statement can be done at any point.........

You can use Append and Insert for Standard Tables But u cannot use Append for Sorted or Generic Tables.. because it will apeend at end only..then the sorted order will be violated then u will get the shortdump..

so for sorted or generic type of tables u have to use Insert rather than Append...
