So is it possible to add an OR condition to the key values of the read statement? The simple answer is no, but you can replicate this functionality using one of two methods.
Method 1 - Using multiple ABAP READ statements within nested IF statements
The first method would be to use multiple READ statements to check each condition but nest these within IF statements.
i.e. Read condition 1
if no entry found read condition 2
if no entry found read condition 3 etc etc
Method 2 - Using an ABAP LOOP statement
The second method would be to use a LOOP statement with all the options within the where clause and simply EXIT on the first loop pass.
i.e.LOOP at itab where condition 1 or condition 2.
If sy-subrc eq 0.
