What is the idea of having STRING type when you can't write into that field
I am desperately trying to write to a field of a database table with DATA TYPE 'STRING'.
When I try to write it using a program from < SE38> or a function <SE37>, I get following error message, while activating the program.
<DATABASE_TABLE> must be a flat structure. You cannot use internal tables,
strings, references, or structures as components.
So, I have been going in circle to find out how to write a string into this field.
I can't use the CHAR or any such type with a limited field length, since the requirement from my customer is to use a variable length string.
Has anybody seen this problem before and if you have resolved this issue, I would appreciate if you can please let me know.
Thanks a lot in advance.
