Meshes - Mesh Path Result

The mesh path result is a description of a set of rows in the last node path node of the expression. The result is used in statements and expressions for using mesh paths (with one exception); either for navigating in the last path node or for manipulating the last path node. The exception is statement SET ASSOCIATION, which works with the second last path node.

Other versions: 7.31 | 7.40 | 7.54


  • At runtime, the mesh path result expresses the relationship (defined by mesh associations) between the start node and follow-on node. The result is managed internally by the ABAP runtime environment and in line with Using Mesh Paths.

  • Loops implemented with LOOP AT or FOR are suitable for performing reads on all the rows described by the mesh path result.
