ABAP CDS - cond_expr

... rel_expr 
  | [NOT] cond_expr [AND|OR cond_expr] ...


Formulates a condition in a CDS view whose result is true or false. A condition is either a single relational expression, rel_expr, or an expression constructed from the Boolean operators NOT, AND, and OR in which parenthesized full conditions cond_expr using parentheses ( ... ) are possible.

The relational expressions rel_expr from which a condition cond_expr can be constructed are as follows:

  • Interval comparisons using BETWEEN
  • Pattern comparisons using LIKE

The Boolean operators work as follows:

  • NOT negates the result of the following condition.
  • An AND join is true if both joined conditions are true.
  • An OR join is true if at least one of the joined conditions is true.

The operator NOT is a stronger binding than AND, which itself is a strong binding than OR. This produces implicit parentheses, which can be overridden by explicit parentheses.
