Read the Query Element Details based on Transport Request.


This document specifies to get the definitions of the query based on the transport request and the elements of the query.


In BW, we will not get the details of the query elements in a transport request in a single click method. For getting the details, we need to check in the tables RSRREPDIR and RSZELTDIR. This report minimizes the time and effort to find out the query elements. The solution of this ABAP logic is to get the Query Element Details based on the Transport Request/Task or Query Element ID.

Program Functionalities


  • Transport Request/Task
  • Query Element ID


  • A detailed report displayed with fields as Report Name, Element name, Element Type and Description

                   Tables Used

  • rszeltdir
  • rszelttxt
  • rszcompdir
  • e071

Step by Step Solution

Transport Request having Query Elements

ABAP Code Logic

  1. Execution.

Transport Request having Query Elements.

The transport request having query elements does not contain the details and it only gives the ID of each element under that transport request.

ABAP Code Logic.

  1. Go to T.Code SE38
  2. Create an executable program
  3. Copy the below code and save.

Tables:               rszeltdir,                                 “query element table

                          rszelttxt,                                  “query element texts

                          rszcompdir,                            “global query elements

                          e071.                                       “objects in transport requests


parameters: Req_id like e071-trkorr.

*selection screen to input long ID 25 char generated name

     select-options: long_ID for rszeltdir-eltuid.

*itab to hold related info

data: begin of i_query_desc occurs 0,

                         local,                                                 “Local to Query

eltuid like rszeltdir-eltuid,                 “25 char generated ID

compid like rszcompdir-compid,      “technical name

deftp like rszeltdir-deftp,                   “element type

el_txt(16),                                           “element type text

            txtlg like rszelttxt-txtlg,                      “long text

owner like rszcompdir-owner,          “owner

end of i_query_desc.

data: xlocal.

sy-tvar0 = Req_id.

*find all query objects for transport request entered

          select * from e071 where trkorr = req_id and object = ‘ELEM’.

* add them to the select-options list

long_ID-low = e071-obj_name.

            append long_ID.

clear long_ID.


*loop through select option table and find details of Query element

Loop at long_ID.

  clear: i_query_desc,





     select single * from rszeltdir where eltuid = long_ID-low and objvers = ‘A’.

if sy-subrc <> 0.

write: / long_ID-low, ‘  Query element not found.’.

write: / .


select single * from rszelttxt where eltuid = long_ID-low and objvers = ‘A’.


            select single * from rszcompdir where compuid = long_ID-low and

         objvers = ‘A’.

if sy-subrc <> 0.

* write: / long_ID-low, ‘ not found in table RSZCOMPDIR.’.

    xlocal = ‘X’.


* fill itab for list

i_query_desc-local = xlocal.

i_query_desc-eltuid = rszeltdir-eltuid.                    “25 char generated ID

i_query_desc-compid = rszcompdir-compid.         “technical name

i_query_desc-deftp = rszeltdir-deftp.                                 “element type

case i_query_desc-deftp.

when ‘SEL’.

      if xlocal = ‘X’.

            i_query_desc-el_txt = ‘Selection’.


i_query_desc-el_txt = ‘Restricted K/Fig’.


when ‘REP’.

i_query_desc-el_txt = ‘Query’.

when ‘VAR’.

i_query_desc-el_txt = ‘Variable’.

when ‘STR’.

i_query_desc-el_txt = ‘Structure’.

when ‘CKF’.

i_query_desc-el_txt = ‘Calculated K/Fig’.

when ‘FML’.

i_query_desc-el_txt = ‘Formula’.


i_query_desc-txtlg = rszelttxt-txtlg.                                    “long text

i_query_desc-owner = rszcompdir-owner.                        “owner

append i_query_desc.

clear i_query_desc.

  1. endloop.                                                                                  “@ long_ID

* list results

sort i_query_desc by local deftp owner.

loop at i_query_desc.

  write: / sy-vline,

                        i_query_desc-eltuid, sy-vline,                        “25 char generated ID

             i_query_desc-compid , sy-vline,                               “technical name

i_query_desc-deftp , sy-vline,                       “element type

                        i_query_desc-el_txt, sy-vline,                        “element text

             i_query_desc-txtlg(40) , sy-vline,                 “long text

                        i_query_desc-owner , sy-vline.

              write: sy-uline .

  1. endloop.


     Selection Screen


Provide the Transport Request or Query Element ID to get the details. If you want to know the definition of only one element, you need to provide the particular query element id in LONG_ID field.



The output contains the definitions of each query element in which we can see the Query Element Type and Description also.
