Hi Krishna,

The Report statement in the editor program will uniquely identifies that particular report name.

If u code another report statement in the same program, it'll show syntax error.

If it helpful to u, reward me plz

Thanks

Suren

In REPORT rep

rep is not required and can in fact be any alphanumeric string. Its use is described in the ABAP HELP for keyword REPORT, but briefly, it tells the ABAP runtime that the program is executable, and it can link a message class, or be used to define a logical database, or define the page layout when writing list reports.

Hi

Report Statement Identify that Program type is executable program.

1 .it will trigger the EVENTS like INITIALIZATION, START-OF-SELECTION

2. it can be schedule in Background also using sm36.

3. it can be executed standalone.

With Regards,

The first statement of an ABAP program must always be the statement REPORT or

PROGRAM, respectively (only exception: FUNCTION-POOL for function modules). Both

statements have exactly the same function.

The name specified in the statements REPORT and PROGRAM must not necessarily be

the program name, but for documentation reasons, you should use the correct name.

The statements REPORT or PROGRAM can have several options, such as LINE-SIZE,

LINE-COUNT, or NO STANDARD PAGE HEADING. You use these options mainly in

programs that which evaluate data and display the results in a list.
