List of System Fields in ABAP

These are the list of some the important System fields in ABAP and its details.

System Fields Type System Field details
sy-abcde c(26) This Transaction code Contains the Latin alphabet. Can be used to access individual letters directly by specifying the offset/length, regardless of the code page.
sy-batch c(1) This Transaction code Set to “X” in an ABAP program that runs in the background, otherwise initial.
sy-binpt c(1) This Transaction code Set to “X” during processing of batch input sessions, and in ABAP programs called using CALL TRANSACTION USING. Otherwise initial.
sy-calld c(1) This Transaction code Contains a blank character in the first program in a call sequence, otherwise contains the value “X”. Is set to “X” after calls using CALL TRANSACTION, CALL DIALOG, or SUBMIT … AND RETURN. Empty if the program was started using LEAVE TO TRANSACTION or a transaction from the screen. A call using SUBMIT (without AND RETURN) assumes the value of the calling program.
sy-callr c(8) This Transaction code used When printing lists, contains a value that displays where printing was started – for example, NEW-PAGE for program-controlled printing, or RSDBRUNT for printing from the selection screen.
sy-colno i This Transaction code return Current position during creation of a list in the list buffer. Counting begins at 1. In non- Unicode systems, this position also corresponds to the column in the displayed list. In Unicode systems, this is only guaranteed for the lower and upper output limits applicable to each output, as one character may take up more columns in the list than positions in the list buffer.

sy-cprog c(40) In procedures called externally, the name of the calling program, otherwise the name of the current program. If a procedure called externally calls another external procedure, sy-cprog contains the name of the framework program, and is not set to the name of the framework program of the subsequent calling program.
sy-cucol i This Transaction code return Horizontal cursor position in the display on a dynpro. Counting begins at column 2.
sy-curow i This Transaction code return Vertical cursor position on the screen display of a screen. Counting begins at line 1.

sy-datlo d Local date of the user – for example, “19990723″. Can be set using GET TIME.

sy-lilli i This Transaction code return List line for which a list event was triggered. Counting begins at 1 and includes the page header.
sy-linct i This Transaction code return Page length of the current list during list creation. sy-linct is 0 for a standard list of any length, and has a value that is not 0 for lists with a defined page length.
sy-linno i This Transaction code return Current list line during list creation. Counting begins at 1 and includes the page header.
sy-linsz i Line width of the current list in the list buffer during list creation.
sy-lisel c(255) Content of the list line in the list buffer, on which the cursor was positioned while a list event was triggered (restricted to the first 255 lines).
sy-listi i List level of the list for which a list event was triggered.
sy-loopc i Number of lines currently displayed in a table control.
sy-lsind i List level of the list that is currently being created (basic list: 0, details lists: greater than 0). For every interactive list event, sy-lsind is automatically increased by an increment of 1. sy-lsind can only be changed in ABAP programs for navigating between details lists.
sy-macol i When printing lists, contains the number of columns on the left edge.
sy-mandt c(3) Client identifier with which the user has logged on – for example, “401″, “800″.
