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_we_category  TYPE OBJH-OBJCATEG ,
ld_wi_tabname  TYPE DD02L-TABNAME ,
ld_we_dd02l  TYPE DD02L ,
ld_wi_dd02l  TYPE DD02L .


SELECT single TABNAME
FROM DD02L
INTO ld_wi_tabname.

ld_wi_dd02l = 'Check type of data required'.
