ABAP inside SQL statements

images/thumbnail.jpg - Thumbnail

Did you know that, if you SAP is recent enough, you can use complex ABAP expressions in the middle of SQL commands?

Like this, for example:

SELECT name1
FROM kna1
WHERE kunnr =
  @( VALUE kunnr( itbl[ vbeln = i_vbeln ]-kunnr OPTIONAL ) )
INTO result.


SAP calls them host expressions and says they can be used in several places in the SQL command. Even in the UP TO.

Thank you Manuel Andrade for the tip.
