Create dynamic table into dynamic structure

  • On this example, I’ll create three internal tables into one internal structure created (dynamically).

  • 1st: create three internal tables dynamically.

  • 2st: create one strusture dynamically with the three iTabs created on first pass.

  • 3st: return final structure dynamically created.


  l_comp_tab    TYPE cl_abap_structdescr=>component_table,

  l_comp_tab2   TYPE cl_abap_structdescr=>component_table,

  l_comp        TYPE cl_abap_structdescr=>component,

  l_comp2       TYPE cl_abap_structdescr=>component,

  lv_size       TYPE i,  “Field size

  lv_decm       TYPE i,  “Field decimal places.

  lv_tabix      TYPE numc1,  “Field decimal places.

  lv_tab_name   TYPE char10,

  lo_new_tab    TYPE REF TO cl_abap_tabledescr,

  l_estrutura   TYPE REF TO cl_abap_structdescr,

  l_struc_final TYPE REF TO data.

BREAK-POINT. “here, on this breakpoint …you can analyze the final structure (l_struc_final) created.

    Easy to find in the right upper corner called Getting Starded. It’s worse to read through 😉


    PS: But nice showcase anyway.
