Typical operands are:

  • Data objects from the same ABAP program
    Data objects in operand positions are modified ( writer positions) or read ( reader positions).
  • Functions and expressions
    In many reader positions (and in some writer positions), functions and expressions can be specified instead of data objects. In these cases, the statement works with the return value of the function or the result of the expression.
  • Callable units from the same program or the repository
    Call units such as ABAP programs, procedures, or dynpros are called during the execution of the statement.
