Obsolete Syntax



The statement END-OF-SELECTION is only intended for use in executable programs that are associated with a logical database. The statement defines an event block whose event is raised as follows by the ABAP runtime environment during the process flow of the executable program:

  • If the executable program is associated with a logical database, END-OF-SELECTION is raised (if the logical database has fully completed its work).
  • In an executable program without a logical database, END-OF-SELECTION is triggered directly after START-OF-SELECTION (or START-OF-EDITING).


  • In this event block, all data read by the logical database can be processed in summary form.
  • In an executable program without a logical database, there is no need to implement the event block END-OF-SELECTION.
