I have following select statement
DATA lt_mara TYPE STANDARD TABLE OF mara-matnr. SELECT matnr FROM mara INTO TABLE lt_mara WHERE matkl = 'XYZ' ORDER BY bismt laeda matnr.
this statement is working correctly in ABAP 7.5 environment but giving syntax error in 7.01 enviroment - field from ORDER BY clause is missing in the SELECT list . Is there any official information that this functionality was added and we can use it without risk? I like the functionality of not passing not needed fields from DB but still be able to sort by it.
Thanks for your answers
