Delete from internal table based on field length

Former Member
0 Kudos

Hi Friends,

I have an internal table with 2 columns.

In one column i have entries with 3 different field lengths (18, 21, 24). Now my requirement is to delete the rows with the field length 21 and 24. Or delete the rows with field lenght 18 and 24 Or delete the rows with field length 18 and 21.

How to acheive this?

Your suggestions and ideas will be appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,

Raju

What about?

delete tab where field1+18 is not initial.

Try something like


loop at itab.
v_length = strlen( itab-field1 ) .
if v_length = 24.
   delete itab index sy-tabix.
endif
endloop.

Thank you both for the responses.

The solutions were helpful to me, however i used the second approach as it doesnt involve the LOOP and definitely has good performance.

Points awarded to both.
