The Language key field contains an alphanumeric code that identifies the language an entry is written in.


In DISPLAY mode, this field identifies the language a record is written in.

In CREATE mode, use this field to identify the language you will use to enter a description. To do so either:

  • Type in the appropriate code, or
  • Request a list of language codes and make a selection by either:
    . Pressing F4, or
    . Clicking the down arrow

NOTE: It is not possible to make entries in this field, everywhere in the system. Sometimes the system automatically completes the field, and you may not change it.

Select option LANGU

Selecting the language-specific object text


With this, it can be chosen in which languages the object texts from the table T77QB are copied.

Caution: Other languages can no longer be re-loaded later. The qualifications catalog should therefore be imported as completely as possible.
