I seem to have filled the Query Window to the max.
I am writing longer and longer queries in notepad, and paste them to the Query Window.
My queries are long mainly because:
(1) I use a kind of menu system so as to simplify the life of users. It means my queries in fact hold many queries inside.
I use GOTO to branch to the appropriate query selected by the user. So, my staff have all related queries in one place.
(2) I have still not developed sufficient proficiency in stored procedures, UDF, etc which can shorten codes.
From time to time, I do shorten my codes.
I got a bad surprise today.
My existing code is already very long – about 17 pages A4 (not too crowded) and has served me well.
Now I added about 10 more pages….
Query Window won’t accept anymore!
Could anyone tell me what is happening?
Is there a limit to how long you can run Queries in Query Window?
Of course I know I must shorten my codes, but I did not expect SAP to limit the size of queries
one can write.
Suppose an expert wrote a query (say 50 pages A4), which cannot be shortened anymore.
How would he proceed to run his query to generate reports from SAP?
