ABAP code to compare 7.40 inline data declaration with original syntax

The below ABAP code uses the older none in-line data declarations. This allows you to see the coding differences/benefits of the later inline syntax. It may also be useful if you are using an older version of SAP as some of the newer syntax above, such as the @DATA is not available until 4.70 EHP 8.

DATA:
ld_length  TYPE SAPB-LENGTH ,
ld_path  TYPE STRING ,
it_binarchivdoc  TYPE STANDARD TABLE OF TBL1024 ,
wa_binarchivdoc  LIKE LINE OF it_binarchivdoc.
