    Even though navigation in the web version is a bit clunky, have to say I really like how ABAP documentation has been updated for 7.4.

    For example, in the old version (which we have in our systems, no 7.4 for us [yet]) there is an example of READ TABLE… ASSIGNING with IF SY-SUBRC = 0 AND … IS ASSIGNED. This gave me a short brain freeze trying to imagine a situation when a record would be found but symbol not assigned. But new documentation explains this perfectly (IS ASSIGNED is actually not needed together with SY-SUBRC = 0). Good thing we have new documentation available online, so even those customers without new ABAP can benefit from better examples and explanations.

    Well done!

      THX 🙂

      The 7.50 version is out there too.

      And don’t hesitate to report (translation) errors or demand possible improvements. Your voice is heared.

      PS: It’s clunky because handmade. That’s not really professional but better than nothing. The ABAP documentation in the system is handmade too, but with the power of ABAP and not only hobby usage of JS.

        Is there a reliable way to link to individual pages within the documentation? Even the inline declarations, constructor expressions, table expressions, etc links above now fail.

            Thank you very much! That was helpful. For future reference (for myself or anyone else who stumbles here):
