DIVIDE-CORRESPONDING (ABAP Keyword) introduction & syntax details

DIVIDE-CORRESPONDING

Basic
form
DIVIDE-CORRESPONDING rec1 BY rec2.

 

Effect
Interprets rec1 and
rec2 as field strings, i.e. if rec1 and rec2 are tables with header lines, the
statement is executed for their header lines.

Searches for all sub-fields
that occur both in rec1 and rec2 and then generates, for all field pairs
corresponding to the sub-fields ni , statements similar in the following
form:

DIVIDE rec1-ni BY rec2-ni.

The other fields remain
unchanged.

With more complex structures, the complete names of the field
pairs must be identical.

Example

DATA: BEGIN OF
MONEY,
VALUE_IN(20) VALUE ‘German marks’.
USA TYPE I VALUE 100,
FRG
TYPE I VALUE 200,
AUT TYPE I VALUE 300,
END OF MONEY,
BEGIN OF
CHANGE,
DESCRIPTION(30)
VALUE ‘DM to national currency’.
USA TYPE F
VALUE ‘1.5’,
FRG TYPE F VALUE ‘1.0’,
AUT TYPE F VALUE ‘0.14286’,
END OF
CHANGE.
DIVIDE-CORRESPONDING MONEY BY CHANGE.
MONEY-VALUE_IN = ‘National
currency’.

The above DIVIDE-CORRESPONDING statement is equivalent to
the following three statements:

DIVIDE MONEY-USA BY
CHANGE-USA.
DIVIDE MONEY-FRG BY CHANGE-FRG.
DIVIDE MONEY-AUT BY
CHANGE-AUT.

All fields of the same name are divided,
whether numeric or not. The conversions performed are the same as those for
