ABAP provides a rich set of operators to manipulate variables. All ABAP operators are classified into four categories −

  • Arithmetic Operators
  • Comparison Operators
  • Bitwise Operators
  • Character String Operators

Arithmetic Operators

Arithmetic operators are used in mathematical expressions in the same way that they are used in algebra. The following list describes arithmetic operators. Assume integer variable A holds 20 and variable B holds 40.

S.No. Arithmetic Operator & Description
1

+ (Addition)

Adds values on either side of the operator. Example: A + B will give 60.

2

− (Subtraction)

Subtracts right hand operand from left hand operand. Example: A − B will give -20.

3

* (Multiplication)

Multiplies values on either side of the operator. Example: A * B will give 800.

4

/ (Division)

Divides left hand operand by right hand operand. Example: B / A will give 2.

5

MOD (Modulus)

Divides left hand operand by right hand operand and returns the remainder. Example: B MOD A will give 0.

Example

REPORT YS_SEP_08. 
DATA: A TYPE I VALUE 150, 
B TYPE I VALUE 50, 
Result TYPE I. 
Result =  A / B. 
WRITE / Result.

The above code produces the following output −

Comparison Operators

Let’s discuss the various types of comparison operators for different operands.

S.No. Comparison Operator & Description
1

= (equality test). Alternate form is EQ.

Checks if the values of two operands are equal or not, if yes then condition becomes true. Example (A = B) is not true.

2

<> (Inequality test). Alternate form is NE.

Checks if the values of two operands are equal or not. If the values are not equal then the condition becomes true. Example (A <> B) is true.

3

> (Greater than test). Alternate form is GT.

Checks if the value of left operand is greater than the value of right operand. If yes then condition becomes true. Example (A > B) is not true.

4

< (Less than test). Alternate form is LT.

Checks if the value of left operand is less than the value of right operand. If yes, then condition becomes true. Example (A < B) is true.

5

>= (Greater than or equals) Alternate form is GE.

Checks if the value of left operand is greater than or equal to the valu
