My requirement is

Just use some code like 'LOOP AT nxl_s_return-nxl_t_resource_attr ASSIGNING <fs>.'

Hello Raymond

I need to loop nxl_t_return(contains multiple records) based on Type 'E'

As per u r suggestion Loop at nxl_s_return ,becomes loop inside loop,it is raises performance issue..

Any other different logic?


If the data object is supplied as an internal table containing a nested internal table, then I don't see how you can do it differently than a loop in a loop; there's no issue with performance in that case!

In other words, the time for reading the internal table is less thant the time for writing it, so I would first analyze the way the internal table is defined (its type) and written (append, insert, index), and if you can't change it (if it's standard), then don't bother with the nested loop).
