sorted extract.

If h is a non-numeric field (see also ABAP/4 number types ) from the field group HEADER and part of the sort key of the extract dataset, the end of a control level (AT END OF , AT LAST ) is such that CNT(h) contains the number of different values which the field h has accepted in the group, i.e. the number of records in the group for which the field f has changed its value.
