Sy-cprog : it is little bit tricky

always it will give main program name,where as sy-repid will give current program name.

example :

main program zxyz.

sy-cprog

sy-repid,in this both will give you same name like zxyz.

example2.

main program zxyz.

you have include zabc.

you have written the code in include

sy-cprog.

sy-repid.

in this case sy-cprog will return zxyz.

in this case sy-repid will return zabc.

sy-dynnr - it will give current screen number

Thanks

Hi,

sy-dynnr - to get current screen

sy-cprog - to get main program

I have one example - suppose you are program cursor at include program and you need to get main program for other purpose then use sy-cprog ( if you use sy-repid - it will have include program)

sy-dynnr - we use in module pool program to pass current screen number to function module to get other requirement,

Thanks,

Hi,

SY-CPROG

The name of the calling program in an external routine, otherwise the name of the current program.

SY-DYNNR

Number of the current screen. During selection screen processing, SY-DYNNR contains the screen number of the current selection screen. During list processing, it contains the number of the container screen. During subscreen processing, SY-DYNNR contains the number of the subscreen. This also applies to tabstrip controls.
