Here's something you won't see very often: instead of DATA: you can also declare your variabele in a routine as STATICS:. What this will do is bombard the locally defined variabele a global variabele. However one that is not available outside the routine. So if you were to use it as a counter, you can increase the counter when you are about to leave the routine and find an increased counter when you next call the routine. 

 

write: / ga_var.
do 3 times. 
  perform kaas.
enddo. 
write: / 'more', ga_var.

form kaas.
  statics: ga_var type char20.
  concatenate ga_var 'X' into ga_var. 
  write: / ga_var.
endform.
