Questions (ttadv4161s000)

Use this session to maintain the questions that Tools can display to the users. Questions are used to ask situation-dependent questions to which the user must respond.

At runtime, the questions are displayed in the language that is specified for the current user.

Question codes can be used in program script and can be linked to domains, tables, table fields, form fields, and so on.

Note: You can only maintain questions within your current package VRC.
