object type

ABAP Workbench (BC-DWB)

Type of development object.

Most objects belong to one of the two predefined object types - R3TR and LIMU.

The object type R3TR includes complex objects, such as a program and the elements that belong to it, while the object type LIMU addresses individual elements of the system, such as a single screen.

Logistics - General (LO)

Categorization of objects for engineering change management.

You can process the following objects with reference to a change number:

In the case of objects of the type bill of material or task list, you can define differences in processing by specifying an object sub-type. For example, within the object type bill of material, you can specify the sub-type material BOM, equipment BOM, document BOM or functional location BOM.

Personnel Management (PA)

Object types provide a means to classify, or categorize objects according to shared characteristics and the type of information carried.

There are 20 object types that originate in PD. They are:

SAP Business Workflow (BC-BMT-WFM)

Generic description of an object created at runtime.

While you use the term object when working with instances, which refer to specific objects, terms, and numbers, a description (definition) generalizing the elements of an object is used at the type level.

Objects are therefore the specific instances of an object type which have been assigned values.

Object types are described and implemented in the object type definition by specifying their elements:

The object repository contains a complete list of all object types. An appropriate object type must be defined before an object is first used.

SAPoffice (BC-SRV-OFC)

Classification of objects.

SAP applications define characteristic objects to which certain methods (for example, Create, Process) can be applied.

Example:

Object type BKPF (accounting document) is defined in the application FI. The methods Confirm, Create, and Find are defined for accounting documents.
