Extracting data from STXH- and STXL-tables

The rental agreements, buildings, complexes e.a. can have a memo attached. I would like to extract those memos...

using Actaworks/Accelerator. Could you please tell me where I could find the contents of the memos? I can locate the STXH- and STXL-tables and the records for my rental agreements, but then I get stuck.

STXH and STXL make up a cluster table. Most long texts are stored in these tables. STXH contains the header information, STXL contains the details. To retrieve long texts use function module 'READ_TEXT'. For example, to read the long text of a material's basic data, set ID to be 'GRUN', NAME is the material number, OBJECT is 'MATERIAL', LANGUAGE is the language you wish to retrieve the text. This will return a table, of structure TLINE.
