Obsolete Statement Structuring

The following syntax forms are obsolete. They are forbidden within ABAP Objects, and outside of classes they cause the syntax check to issue warnings:

  • Outside of classes, the operators for offset and length can be omitted in offset/length specifications. A single plus sign directly after a field name, a plus sign that directly follows a parenthetical expression, or an empty parenthetical expression after a plus sign, an offset value, or a field name, are interpreted as not existing.
