ADD (ABAP Keyword) introduction and details

**ADD **

Variants

1. ADD n TO m.

2. ADD n1 THEN n2

UNTIL nz GIVING m.

3. ADD n1 THEN n2 UNTIL nz TO m.

4. ADD n1 THEN n2

UNTIL nz

…ACCORDING TO sel …GIVING m.

5. ADD n1 FROM m1 TO mz GIVING

m.

Variant 1

ADD n TO m.

Effect

Adds the contents of n to

the contents of M and stores the result in m .

This is equivalent to: m = m +

n.

Example

DATA: NUMBER TYPE I VALUE 3,

SUM TYPE I VALUE

5.

ADD NUMBER TO SUM.

The field SUM now contains 8, whilst the

contents of the field NUMBER remains unchanged at 3.

Note

The details

about conversions and performance described under COMPUTE are identical for ADD

.

Note

Runtime errors

BCD_BADDATA : P field contains incorrect

BCD format.

BCD_FIELD_OVERFLOW : Result field too small (type P

).

BCD_OVERFLOW : Overflow with arithmetic operation (type P

.

COMPUTE_INT_PLUS_OVERFLOW : Integer overflow when adding.

Variant 2

ADD n1 THEN n2 UNTIL nz GIVING

m.

Effect

Adds the contents of the fields n1, n2, …, nz together and

stores the result in m , where n1 is the first, n2 the second and nz the last of

a sequence of fields the same distance apart. They can be either database fields

or internal fields, but they must all have the same type and length.

This is

equivalent to: m = n1 + n2 + … + nz.

Example

DATA: BEGIN OF

NUMBERS,

ONE TYPE P VALUE 10,

TWO TYPE P VALUE 20,

THREE TYPE P VALUE

30,

FOUR TYPE P VALUE 40,

FIVE TYPE P VALUE 50,

SIX TYPE P VALUE

60,

END OF NUMBERS,

SUM TYPE I VALUE 1000.

ADD NUMBERS-ONE THEN

NUMBERS-TWO

UNTIL NUMBERS-FIVE GIVING SUM.

The field SUM now contains

150 but its initial value is unimportant. The fields within the field string

NUMBERS remain unchanged.

Variant 3

ADD n1 THEN n2 UNTIL nz TO

m.

Effect

Calculates the total as in variant 2 but then adds it to the

contents of the field m .

This is equivalent to: m = m + n1 + n2 + … +

nz

Example

DATA: BEGIN OF NUMBERS,

ONE TYPE P VALUE 10,

TWO

TYPE P VALUE 20,

THREE TYPE P VALUE 30,

FOUR TYPE P VALUE 40,

FIVE TYPE

P VALUE 50,

END OF NUMBERS,

SUM TYPE I VALUE 1000.

ADD NUMBERS-ONE THEN

NUMBERS-TWO

UNTIL NUMBERS-FIVE TO SUM.

The field SUM now contains

1150.

Variant 4

ADD n1 THEN n2 UNTIL nz

…ACCORDING TO sel

…GIVING m.

Effect

Calculates the total as in variants 2 and 3. In

this case, however, the operands from a sequence of fields of the same type are

restricted to a partial sequence by the selection specification sel generated by

SELECT-OPTIONS or RANGES . The partial sequence results from the indexes that

satisfy the condition IN sel (see IF ).

Example

DATA: BEGIN OF

NUMBERS,

ONE TYPE P VALUE 10,

TWO TYPE P VALUE 20,

THREE TYPE P VALUE

30,

FOUR TYPE P VALUE 40,

FIVE TYPE P VALUE 50,

END OF NUMBERS,

SUM

TYPE I VALUE 1000,

INDEX TYPE I.

RANGES SELECTION FOR

INDEX.

SELECTION-SIGN = ‘I’.

SELECTION-OPTION = ‘BT’.

SELECTION-LOW

= 2.

SELECTION-HIGH = 4.

APPEND SELECTION.

ADD NUMBERS-ONE THEN

NUMBERS-TWO

UNTIL NUMBERS-FIVE

ACCORDING TO SELECTION

GIVING

SUM.

SUM now contains 90. Only the component fields TWO to FOUR were

selected from the field string NUMBERS and added together.

Variant

5

ADD n1 FROM m1 TO mz GIVING m.

Effect

The field n1 must be the

first in a sequence of consecutive fields of the same type. m1 and mz should

contain the numbers of the first and last fields in this sequence to be added

together (whether fixed or variable). The total is stored in m

.

Example

DATA: BEGIN OF NUMBERS,

ONE TYPE P VALUE 10,

TWO

TYPE P VALUE 20,

THREE TYPE P VALUE 30,

FOUR TYPE P VALUE 40,

FIVE TYPE

P VALUE 50,

END OF NUMBERS,

START TYPE I VALUE 2,

SUM TYPE I VALUE

1000.

ADD NUMBERS-ONE FROM START TO 4 GIVING SUM.

The field SUM now

contains 90.

Note

Performance The details for conversion and

performance specified for COMPUTE are equally valid for ADD .

The runtime

required for adding two numbers of type I or F is about 2 (standardized

microseconds), for type P it is roughly 8 msn.

Note

Runtime

errors

Besides the runtime errors listed in variant 1, the error

ADDF_INT_OVERFLOW can occur instead of COMPUTE_INT_PLUS_OVERFLOW in other

variants.
