    Host variables are part of the "new" SQL syntax in ABAP. There are lots of new functions available in newer releases, but the interpreter needs to distinguish host- (data from the application server) and server (data from the database) variables. See https://help.sap.com/abapdocu_740/en/abenopen_sql_host_variables.htm
