Dear community, small survey and discussion:
- Who else is still using the WRITE statement?
- In what situation are you using it?
I know, it’s a very old statement, but it doesn’t matter. There are rare cases in which it serves well for me: small correction reports, test reports and for output in background jobs.
There are alternatives to output some text or list entries. Here are some suggestions:
- MESSAGE statement
- function module POPUP_TO_INFORM
- SAP List Viewer (ALV)
- Class CL_DEMO_OUTPUT (maybe via console of ABAP Development Tools)
- Application Log
Best regards, thanks for reading and stay healthy
