DATA: ld_field(50) type c.

P_field type ld_field.

p_field = ' Welcome '.

ld_field = p_field.

CONDENSE ld_field .

write ld_field .

It is displying the like 'Welcome '

Is it because that i have specify the ld_field(50) so it is thinking that it is 50 char length and

just appeding the spaces after 'Wlecome '

hi,

just use

<b>CONDENSE</b>

eg:

*Code to demonstrate CONDENSE command

DATA: ld_field(50) type c.

p_field = ' Welcome '.

CONDENSE p_field. "P_field must be of type character

*Result of p_field would be: 'Welcome'

hi,

use <b>NO-GAPS</b>

DATA: ld_field(50) type c.

P_field type ld_field.

p_field = ' Welcome '.

ld_field = p_field.

CONDENSE ld_field <b>NO-GAPS</b>.

write ld_field .

thanks for the quick reply

I have tried NO-GAPS It works.. but it is removeing all the spaces in the string and i want to remove only the

left side sapces and right side sapces .

e.g

DATA: ld_field(50) type c.

P_field type ld_field.

p_field = ' Welcome To SAP '.

ld_field = p_field.

CONDENSE ld_field NO-GAPS.

write ld_field .

The out put is

'WlecomeToSAP'

hi,

then use this.

<b>

SHIFT ld_field RIGHT DELETING TRAILING SPACE.

SHIFT ld_field LEFT DELETING LEADING SPACE.</b>

DATA: ld_field(50) type c.

P_field type ld_field.

p_field = ' Welcome To SAP '.

ld_field = p_field.

SHIFT ld_field RIGHT DELETING TRAILING SPACE.

SHIFT ld_field LEFT DELETING LEADING SPACE.

write ld_field .

there is no trim function as java in ABAP.

use the condense statement to remove the spaces.
