ABAP IF Statement

In ABAP, the IF statement is used for conditional branching. It allows you to execute a block of code based on a specified condition. Here's the syntax for the IF statement in ABAP:

IF condition.
  " Code to be executed if the condition is true

The condition is an expression that evaluates to either true or false. If the condition is true, the code block between IF and ENDIF is executed. If the condition is false, the code block is skipped.

You can also use additional keywords like ELSE and ELSEIF to specify alternative code blocks to be executed when the condition is false or when multiple conditions need to be checked.

Here's an example of an ABAP IF statement:

DATA: lv_number TYPE i.
lv_number = 10.

IF lv_number > 5.
  WRITE 'The number is greater than 5'.
  WRITE 'The number is less than or equal to 5'.

In this example, if lv_number is greater than 5, the message "The number is greater than 5" will be displayed. Otherwise, the message "The number is less than or equal to 5" will be displayed.
