What is a Logical Database?

A Logical Database is a special data-retrieval program delivered by SAP, with its own dynamic Selection Screens. You need to code only the processing logic (GET, CHECK, etc., statements). The logical database consists of a read program in which the structure of the local database is reproduced with a selection screen.
