I want to append blanks to the right of a character string. However, I am not able to achieve it.
Are there any readymade Function modules provided by SAP to do the same or can you provide me some sample code to achieve the same.
I have written a dummy code to test it. But it does not work. Can I get some help on this ?
DATA: len TYPE i,
shift_len TYPE i,
new_len TYPE i,
test_str(10) type c value 'SUNDAR'.
len = strlen( test_str ).
IF len < 10.
shift_len = 10 - len.
SHIFT test_str BY shift_len places RIGHT.
SHIFT test_str by shift_len places CIRCULAR.
new_len = strlen( test_str ).
WRITE: len,' ',new_len.
Wondering why the above program does not work.
Thanks in advance for your inputs.
