Explaining Example -

In the above example, three types of skips explained. First WRITE statement output displays at the line 3. SKIP statement skips the 4th line display. Second WRITE statement output displays at 5th line. So currently the cursor at the 5th line.

SKIP 4 – skips the 4 lines from 5th line and places the cursor at 10th line.Third WRITE statement output displays at 10th line.

SKIP TO LINE 15 – places the cursor at the 15th line. Fourth WRITE statement output displays at 15th line.

Note! As discussed in the previous chapter, the ABAP output displaying from 3rd line. The first line is the program name and the 2nd line for drawing the line.
