After starting the ABAP editor, it provides the full functionality, as if called from the ABAP-Workbench. You can navigate forward to branch to other tools. After returning from the ABAP editor, the current program continues after the statement EDITOR-CALL>.
Latest notes:If an inactive version of the program exists, then this version is loaded. This statement skips the authorization checks triggered when using a transaction code to call ABAP Editor, however the editor still checks the development authorization of the user in question. Do not use this method of calling ABAP Editor any longer. Instead, use official ABAP Workbench interfaces, such as the function module RS_TOOL_ACCESS>>. If only the properties of the editor control are needed, the GUI> class CL_GUI_SOURCEEDIT>> or its subclass CL_GUI_ABAPEDIT>> is used.
