Two data elements in one table

When writing a program, it may be useful to know: Is there a DB-table, containing the data elements of two screen fields? Next clear code may help in some cases. It can be easily developed up to selecting by domains or fieldnames in addition to or instead of data elements. Another idea is to use wildcards, because screen structure field/data element (accessed via F1-F9 help) may have a name, which sometimes differs from DB-table's ones.

tables: DD03L, DD02L.

select-options ROLL  for DD03L-rollname no intervals default 'TABNAME'.
select-options ROLL1 for DD03L-rollname no intervals default 'TABCLASS'.
select-options TABCL for DD02L-tabclass no intervals default 'TRANSP'.
*            try also:        'CLASTER', 'POOL', 'VIEW'.
select-options TABNAME  for DD03L-tabname no intervals.

data: begin of itab occurs 0,
        tabname    like dd02L-tabname,
        tabclass   like DD02L-tabclass,
        fieldname  like DD03L-fieldname,
        rollname   like DD03L-rollname,
        fieldname1 like DD03L-fieldname,
        rollname1  like DD03L-rollname,
      end of itab .

  select distinct DD02L~tabname
    into table itab
    from ( DD03L inner join DD03L as a on a~tabname = DD03L~tabname
                 inner join DD02L      on DD02L~TABNAME = DD03L~TABNAME
    where DD03L~TABNAME
