I would like to loop through a file (open dataset, read dataset, etc.), check for certain characters in the rows of this file, and replace where necessary. I know how to do this but I still use the old abap code, is there a neater, newer, better, way of doing this with abap 7.40?
Here is a sample of the code I have. There are more characters that I have to test for but this is just a small example to demonstrate my point:
IF gv_string CS 'E#'. REPLACE 'E#' WITH 'n'. ELSEIF gv_string CS 'M<'. REPLACE 'M<' WITH 'la'. ELSEIF gv_string CS 'T#'. REPLACE 'T#' WITH 'abc'. ELSEIF gv_string CS 'XZ'. REPLACE 'XZ' WITH 'w'. ENDIF.
All help, tips, etc., are really greatly appreciated.
I wish you all a nice day further.
