Answer / sandeep joshi

@ Priya.
According to my one experience you can only use 'AT NEW'
with only the table's fields in which you are looping
whereas 'ON CHANGE OF' can be used with any data element
inside any table's loop.

Second 'ON CHANGE OF' is obsolete but as of my experience
'AT NEW' doesn't provide the same functionality.

Answer / sunil

Control break statements are
1. At First
2. At Last
3. At New
4. At End of
And all these statements work only between Loop and Endloop.

F1 F2 F3
1 A B
1 B C
2 C A
3 D E

here F1, F2 and F3 are the three fields

if we apply the At New statement between these three fields
then the output would be
1 b c
2 c a
3 d e
