ABAP Keyword Documentation →  ABAP − Reference →  ABAP Syntax →  ABAP Statements 


Typical operands of an ABAP statement are:

  • Functions and expressions
    In many reading positions (and in some writing 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
    Callable units such as procedures or other ABAP programs are called when the statement is executed.
