INCLUDE includes the
incl at this position in the source code. In syntax checks and when the programs is generated
by ABAP Compiler, statement is replaced by the source code of the include program. The included
INCLUDE program must consist of full statements.
If the specified include program does not exist, a syntax error is produced. This error message can be suppressed by specifying the addition
INCLUDEis the only statement that can be used instead of a statement that introduces a program at the first position of a program. The requirement is that, after the include program is resolved, a statement that introduces a program is located at the beginning of the including program.
- ABAP Workbench supports the automatic creation of include programs for specific program parts, such as the top include for global declarative statements. Always use the naming conventions proposed by ABAP Workbench. The top include can contain only declarative statements and is respected when individual include programs of a program are compiled.
In Repository Browser
in ABAP Workbench's Object Navigator, the
INCLUDEprograms bound by a program are executed as the program's subnodes.
These lines show the master program of the function group ABAP_DOCU. This function group displays the keyword documentation on the
Application Server ABAP.
It only contains
INCLUDE statements which embed the actual source code.
labap_docutop itself is made up of include programs for the individual declarations (global data and class declarations local to the program).
