Dear community, small survey and discussion:

  1. Who else is still using the WRITE statement?

  2. In what situation are you using it?

I know, it's a very old statement, but it doesn't matter. There are rare cases in which it serves well for me: small correction reports, test reports and for output in background jobs.

There are alternatives to output some text or list entries. Here are some suggestions:

  1. MESSAGE statement

  2. function module POPUP_TO_INFORM

  3. SAP List Viewer (ALV)

  4. Class CL_DEMO_OUTPUT (maybe via console of ABAP Development Tools)

  5. Application Log

Other suggestions?


Best regards, thanks for reading and stay healthy
