WRITE statement keeps outputting data from previous runs

Former Member

Dear developers,

can you please help me with the following hopefully very simple problem. I wrote a simple ABAP report, which uses the WRITE statement to output data. The trouble: the report seems to output not just the data from this particular run, but from all the other previous runs as well, so the list keeps growing every time I start the report. Should I have flushed the bigger somehow?

Thank you!

Alexander.

Dear Ashish,

yes, hear is the code.

FORM change_status USING lv_objnr.

   WRITE: /'Order', lv_objnr.

   CALL FUNCTION 'STATUS_CHANGE_EXTERN'
     EXPORTING
       check_only          = p_test
       objnr               = lv_objnr
       user_status         = 'E0003'
       set_chgkz           = 'X'
     EXCEPTIONS
       object_not_found    = 1
       status_inconsistent = 2
       status_not_allowed  = 3
       OTHERS              = 4.
   IF sy-subrc = 0.
    WRITE: /'Status changed successfully.'.
   ENDIF.

ENDFORM.


This form is being called from with the main program.

Hi,

As it is a form , it will work only when the perform is triggered. And inside this do a commit after the FM to work.

As you are saying that its printing from past runs, then I am not sure why as I don't see any problem in here.

Put a commit statement and run again , and see what happens.

Dear Ashish,

I already have a COMMIT in the main program, from where the routine is called (with a perform of course).

Dear Ashish,

I found the error and it was elsewhere. I was mistaken: the routine doesn't really print data from the past runs, the errror is a different one.

Thank you anyway fro your hints!

Alexander.
