Internal Tables in Release 7.52

1. Virtual sorting of internal tables

Modification 1

Virtual Sorting of Internal Tables

The new method VIRTUAL_SORT of class CL_ABAP_ITAB_UTILITIES enables virtual sorting of a set of internal tables with the same number of rows. The internal tables are treated internally like a single combined table containing all the columns of the involved internal tables. The result is an array of row numbers of the virtually sorted combined table. See the related executable examples.
