I have learned that TOP-OF-PAGE event is triggered when abap run-time environment first encounters WRITE statement in the program. The code below TOP-OF-PAGE is executed and then the control will execute the WRITE statement .

Below is the code which does not give the output despite the rules are followed :


Loop at it into wa

write:/ wa-matnr , wa-mtart.



Select matnr mtart from mara into corresponding fields of table it up to 10 rows.


The list screen is not displayed. No output.

As you say, WRITE may trigger TOP-OF-PAGE (at top of page), but in your code WRITE is not triggered because your internal table IT is empty.

Nice observation. I will try populating the table with merely required values and then try to execute.

Yes, the WRITE statement could not trigger TOP-OF-PAGE as the internal table was empty.

Once I initialized it TOP-OF-PAGE was properly triggered executing the code below.

Thank you.
