The previous tip on this subject can be superseded by the simple use of field-symbols in connection with the 'Assign component idx' statement in SAP.

Gives the same result , but also has the benefit of making use of existing conversion exit's.

  DATA: BEGIN OF REC,
          A VALUE 'a',
          B VALUE 'b',
          C VALUE 'c',
          D VALUE 'd',
        END OF REC,
        CN(5) VALUE 'D'.
  FIELD-SYMBOLS 
 
  .
  DO 3 TIMES.
    ASSIGN COMPONENT SY-INDEX OF
           STRUCTURE REC TO 
  
   .
    IF SY-SUBRC <> 0. EXIT. ENDIF.
    WRITE 
   
    .
  ENDDO.
  ASSIGN COMPONENT CN OF STRUCTURE REC TO 
    
     .
  WRITE 
     
      .
