DIVIDECORRESPONDING
Basic form
DIVIDECORRESPONDING rec1 BY rec2.
Effect
Interprets rec1 and rec2 as field strings,
i.e. if rec1 and rec2 are tables with header lines, the
statement is executed for their header lines.
Searches for all subfields that occur both in rec1 and
rec2 and then generates, for all field pairs corresponding to
the subfields ni , statements similar in the following form:

DIVIDE rec1ni BY rec2ni.
The other fields remain unchanged.
With more complex structures, the complete names of the field pairs
must be identical.
Example

DATA: BEGIN OF MONEY,
VALUE_IN(20) VALUE 'German marks'.
USA TYPE I VALUE 100,
FRG TYPE I VALUE 200,
AUT TYPE I VALUE 300,
END OF MONEY,
BEGIN OF CHANGE,
DESCRIPTION(30)
VALUE 'DM to national currency'.
USA TYPE F VALUE '1.5',
FRG TYPE F VALUE '1.0',
AUT TYPE F VALUE '0.14286',
END OF CHANGE.
DIVIDECORRESPONDING MONEY BY CHANGE.
MONEYVALUE_IN = 'National currency'.
The above DIVIDECORRESPONDING statement is equivalent to the
following three statements:

DIVIDE MONEYUSA BY CHANGEUSA.
DIVIDE MONEYFRG BY CHANGEFRG.
DIVIDE MONEYAUT BY CHANGEAUT.
Note
All fields of the same name are divided, whether numeric
or not. The conversions performed are the same as those for
DIVIDE and similar runtime errors can
occur.
