You can see the use of all the statements andcontrol words in the given example.Output can be seen with a write statement in the end.You can also see the use of Predefined Data type and referencetype.You see creation of reports in the program.
Creating and changing ABAP/4 Programs
ABAP/4 Programs are objects of the R/3 Repository, and thereforemaintained just like any other Repository objects (example ABAP/4Dictionary Tables or user interface screens) using a tool of theABAP/4 workbench, the ABAP/4 Editor.To start the ABAP/4 Editor to create or change ABAP/4 Programs,R/3 System offers three possibilities:
Open programs in object browser
Open programs using the ABAP/4 Editor
Open Programs via forward navigation
Open programs in the object browser
The object browser offers a hierarichal overview of all R/3 Repositoryobjects,order by development classes, user name of the programmers,object types and so on. By selecting a program, the object browserdirects access to all components of a program, such as main program,subroutines or global data.The procedure is suited for complex (Interactive) reports or module poolfor transaction, since in object browser you have an overview ofall thecomponents like user interfaces screens or Dynpros.To open the ABAP/4 Programs in the object browser choose objectbrowser of the ABAP Development Workbench(or start Transaction SE80).The initial Screen appear. Here you can enter a Program name directly orlist of all programs of a certain development class.
