    hi neha ,

    TRY THIS :

    parameter : p_char(30) type c.

    data : lw_string(30) type c.

    lw_string = p_char.

    shift lw_string right by 10 PLACES. " Removes last 10 character

    condense lw_string. " condensing the space after shifting it to right

    WRITE lw_string.

    regards ,
