Hi

I think you can't. But you can use the type ANY in programs to declare varaibles to accept any type:

Example

REPORT demo_field_symbols_stat_assign .

FIELD-SYMBOLS: <f1> TYPE ANY, <f2> TYPE i.

DATA: text(20) TYPE c VALUE 'Hello, how are you?',

num TYPE i VALUE 5,

BEGIN OF line1,

col1 TYPE f VALUE '1.1e+10',

col2 TYPE i VALUE '1234',

END OF line1,

line2 LIKE line1.

ASSIGN text TO <f1>.

ASSIGN num TO <f2>.

DESCRIBE FIELD <f1> LENGTH <f2>.

WRITE: / <f1>, 'has length', num.

ASSIGN line1 TO <f1>.

ASSIGN line2-col2 TO <f2>.

MOVE <f1> TO line2.

ASSIGN 'LINE2-COL2 =' TO <f1>.

WRITE: / <f1>, <f2>.

The output is:

Hello, how are you? has length 20

LINE-COL2 = 1,234

The example declares two field symbols <F1> and <F2>. <F2> has the type I, which means that only type I fields may be assigned to it. <F1> and <F2> both point to different fields during the program.

Use string data type for the same.
