Sometimes you want to define a dynamic line-size in your report because you do not know beforehand the number of columns to WRITE.
With NEW-PAGE LINE-SIZE TP_LINESIZE you can do this. But then there is always the problem that you want to be able to use the very last position of your list, f.e. to write a vertical line or a page number.
* This writes a vertical line WRITE AT sy-linsz sy-vline. * If you want your FORMAT COLOR to last to end of line use this: WRITE AT SY-LINSZ ''. * This writes page-number to utmost right data: lo_offset type i. lo_offset = sy-linsz - 5. WRITE AT lo_offset(5) sy-pagno NO-SIGN.
