Is there any way to modify an internal table using new abap syntax, possibly within FOR...IN iteration? I need to modify the value in a column of each row of an existing internal table and assign it to a new internal table. I was trying to use something like this:
TYPES: tt_1 TYPE TABLE OF YGT_COST WITH EMPTY KEY.
DATA: lr_gen TYPE REF TO data.
FIELD-SYMBOLS: <tab> TYPE STANDARD TABLE.
FIELD-SYMBOLS: <line1> TYPE ANY.
CREATE DATA lr_gen TYPE STANDARD TABLE OF YGT_COST WITH EMPTY KEY.
ASSIGN lr_gen->* TO <tab>.
CREATE DATA lr_gen TYPE YGT_COST.
ASSIGN lr_gen->* TO <line1>.*
<tab> = ct_table.
DATA(lt_table) = VALUE tt_1( FOR <line> IN <tab> ( new_update = 'X' ) ).
*// However, the above statement is creating an internal table lt_table with the line type of <line> but it's only populating new_update colum with 'X'. Remaining columns are rendering as initial into the new internal table lt_table.
What i am expecting is to only update column new_update with 'X' and remaining columns should have values from <line> structure. Please note, Column to column mapping from <line> to the corresponding fields of lt_table is not feasible because of large number of columns involved.
