Maxing out on available characters? Maybe not when providing enhancement-options! (< 72!)

If you “liked” my problem with ABAP restrictions – 72 characters  ( Manfred Klein 😉 )  you’ll “love” this:

I think you can break most statements down do multiple lines, so that each line has less’ than 72 character, like so:

"select * from mara into @l_mara where matnr = @p_matnr.

select * from mara 
into @l_mara 
where matnr = @p_matnr.

But there’s – at least – one, where you cannot do that: ENHANCEMENT-POINT (and I guess it’s true for ENHANCEMENT-SECTION as well).

Like in:

ENHANCEMENT-POINT zz_my_point_quite_long1 SPOTS zz_ENHANCEMENT_SPOT_MAXXED_OUT.

…count the characters…. (it’s > 72 ! )

Sarcasm: So better stick with something short, like:

ENHANCEMENT-POINT z_V45 SPOTS z_V50.
