Hi,

in itab-field+0(2)...0 is the starting index and 2 is the length..

Let's say if the value is 101...The value of itab-field+0(2) = 10..

Thanks,

itab-field+0(2) means it will have only first 2 charcters.

one more example : itab-field+0(10) means it will have 10 char..

hi,

the general form is like variable+offset(length).

offset - character number in the string of characters

length - no. of characters starting from offset.

First character is considered at offset 0.

here 0 is offset and 2 is length.

So it will be a substring with first 2 characters from itab-field

another example would be:

assume value of itab-field = 'srinivas'.

And i want to get value 'niv' into other variable then i would write as:

itab-field+3(3)

Answer to your question.

0--> OFFSET

2 --> Lenght

Now let me give you one example

Suppose itab-field = 'ABCDEFGHIJKL'.

itab-field+0(2) will hold 'AB'.

itab-field+4(5) will hold 'EFGHI'.

I think now you are clear with concept.
