Dear friends,

Please tell me the difference between sy-index & sy-tabix

Actually my problem is i don't know how to compare for example between first record'field n and second record'field n when u r in loop so i can take particular action based on result

on current recor

if possible send me sample code.

Regards;

Parag Gavkar.

Hi,

sy-index will give u the number of iteration in the loop.

sy-tabix will give u the number rows filled in an internal table at the moment.

hi,

SY-TABIX means Table Index. This signifies the number of table index. Each row of a table has certain index or counter. The value of sy-tabix for the last entry would be equivalent to number of table entries.

SY-INDEX means the number of Iterations for a loop. bascially DO - ENDDO .

SY-INDEX is not equal to SY-TABIX.

sy-tabix inside loop-endloop, and sy-index inside do-enddo.

Check the belwo program

report tabix_index.

DO 100 times.

wa_tab-index = sy-index.

append wa_tab to itab.

clear wa_tab.

enddo.

loop at itab into wa_tab.

write:/1 sy-tabix.

endloop.

I hope this answers your question.

Hi,

SY-INDEX will work for DO..ENDDO..It holds the current row number within the loop..

DO 10 TIMES.

WRITE: / SY-INDEX.

ENDDO.

SY-TABIX will work for LOOP..ENDLOOP...It holds the current row within the loop..

Thanks,

Hi

sy-index = gives the number of iterations in the loop.

sy-tabix = will give the Table Index of an internal table at that moment.

Reward points if useful

SY-TABIX:

Current line in an internal table. With the following statements SY-TABIX is set for index tables. With hashed tables, SY-TABIX is not filled or it is set to 0.

- APPEND sets SY-TABIX to the index of the last table row, that is the total number of entries in the target table.

- COLLECT sets SY-TABIX to the index of the existing or appended table row. With hashed tables, SY-TABIX is set to 0.

- LOOP AT sets SY-TABIX to the index of the current table row at the beginning of every loop pass. After leaving a loop, SY-TABIX is set to the value it had before entering the loop. With hashed tables, SY-TABIX is set to 0.

- READ TABLE sets SY-TABIX to the index of the table row read. If no row is found with binary search while reading, SY-TABIX contains the index of the next-highest row or the total number of rows +1. If no row is found with linear search while reading, SY-TABIX is undefined.

- SEARCH itab FOR sets SY-TABIX to the index of the table row, in which the search string was found.

SY-INDEX:

SY-INDEX contains the number of loop passes in DO and WHILE loops, including the current loop pass.

sy-index is used in do..enddo ,  and other loops

sy-tabix is used when looping at internal tables

loop at itab.
 v_tabix = sy-tabix.
 v_tabix = v_tabix + 1.
 read table itab index v_tabix.   " to read the next record
 *do the calculations herw
 endloop.

Hi,

Sy-index is related to the loop,It's represents the Current loop pass.(Do ,While)

Sy-tabix is related to the internal table.it represents current line index.(Looping thru itab affects sy-tabix)

hi,

sy-index is used in do..enddo , and other loops and also used as current index of the list.

sy-tabix is used when looping at internal tables for getting index of the internal table.

if helpfulreward some points.

hi parag,

if it's sy-index that we can use in read statement,

or if it's sy-tabix that we can use in loop statement, this can help u to know which record(no) is processing in the loop.

Hi

SY-INDEX - > It is ABAP System field, Initial value will be zero, but when u place in do loop and while loop it is incremented by 1.

example

do 5 times.

write : sy-index.

enddo.

o/p will be 1 2 3 4 5

SY-TABIX - > Current Line of Internal Table
