Advanced ABAP Programming for SAP covers the more difficult aspects of ABAP, the customisation and reporting language built into SAP R/3. This book assumes a basic familiarity with the ABAP language (formerly known as ABAP/4) and builds upon it, exposing the reader to ABAP's considerable customisation and transaction-handling power along the way.
Here you'll find lots of prose to back up the code. Typically, the authors (three SAP consultants) introduce a subject with an explanation, then present a short program that illustrates the concept in its most simple case. From there, they provide the reader with code and prose that address variations upon the standard case.
The authors also emphasise procedures, where appropriate. In their coverage of creating a domain in the Data Dictionary, for example, they provide a step-by-step procedure with screen shots from the SAP environment. The result: Advanced ABAP represents a good tutorial for those wanting to expand their ABAP skills beyond the essentials. Back it up with a reference, and you'll be ready to tackle complex assignments. --David Wall
