Package size in SELECT statements

Package size can be used to retreive a spcific number of records at a time. This can be used if you for example only want tofinish  processing a limited amount of data at a time due to lack of memory.

The exampel below  read 50 records at a time from VBAK into an internal table, and selects the corresponding entries from vbap into an internal table. Then the two internal tables can be processed, and the next 50 records from VBAk can be read. remeber to reinitialize tha tables before the next read.

Note the usage of SELECT - ENDSELECT !
