DIVIDE-CORRESPONDING


Basic form

DIVIDE-CORRESPONDING 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 sub-fields that occur both in rec1 and rec2 and then generates, for all field pairs corresponding to the sub-fields ni , statements similar in the following form:
DIVIDE rec1-ni BY rec2-ni.

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. DIVIDE-CORRESPONDING MONEY BY CHANGE. MONEY-VALUE_IN = 'National currency'.

The above DIVIDE-CORRESPONDING statement is equivalent to the following three statements:
DIVIDE MONEY-USA BY CHANGE-USA. DIVIDE MONEY-FRG BY CHANGE-FRG. DIVIDE MONEY-AUT BY CHANGE-AUT.

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.
