CONTINUE statement in ABAP is used for terminating the current loop iteration and start the next iteration. This statement can only used with the loops like
- DO … ENDDO Loops
- WHILE … ENDWHILE loops
- LOOP … ENDLOOP loops
- SELECT … ENDSELECT loops
See the following sample code and its result for better understand.
DO 10 TIMES.
IF SY-INDEX >= 0 AND SY-INDEX <= 6. CONTINUE.
WRITE: SY-INDEX, ‘ ‘.
Its output will be:
7 8 9 10
(You can see that all other iteration with the values between 0-6 are terminated before WRITE statement.)
