Answer / jyothirmaikaza
Domain - Specifies the technical attributes of a data
element - its data type, length, possible values, and
appearance on the screen.Each data element has an
underlying domain. A single domain can be the basis for
several data elements. Domains are objects in the ABAP
Data Element - Describes the business function
of a table field. Its technical attributes are based on a
domain, and its business function is described by its field
labels and documentation.

Answer / naveen padhmanaban
It is a semantic characteristics of a table field Data elements appear as objects in the dictionary. Because they are objects
in their own right, you can
reuse data elements within the same table or among fields in several tables.
- Domain name
- Field label
- F1 documentation : TCODE – SE61.
Type name of document and select document class & language. Use this document name as a reference to
link with another document in which you have selected a text which is to be hyperlinked. Insert -> link -> document
It is a technical characteristics of a field.
A domain specifies information like data type , length & decimal places.
Like data elements, domains are stored as objects in the Dictionary.
You can reuse domains just as you can reuse data elements.
