Improve performance of SELECT

As you know it is important to use as many key fields as possible in WHERE clauses of SELECT statements.

As you all know, it is important to use as many key fields as possible in WHERE clauses of SELECT statements. Sometimes

you are not sure about the value of some key fields. They seem to be empty (Initial value) but you are afraid to use this in your ABAP coding.

Using the option GE (greater equal) in your coding can improve your performance considerably without the risk of table lines not being selected.
