COALESCE

Hi,

SELECT EBELN, INFNR,

MATKL,

COALESCE( s~INFNR, s~MATKL ) AS ABCD

FROM EKPO AS s

UP TO 20 ROWS

INTO TABLE @DATA(lt_result).

I am Using the previous code to test.

But if s~INFNR is null and s~MATKL consists value, then also blank is displaying in ABCD column.


Need clarification.

    In the field INFNR there is never a null value but an empty value. So you can not use coalesce here because infnr is always set

    SELECT * FROM EKPO WHERE INFNR = '' ... returns a lot of results

    SELECT * FROM EKPO WHERE INFNR is null ... returns no results

    So in your case you should use matkl if infnr = ''

    Best regards, Andreas
