Find overlapping dates in transportation lanes

I need to locate transportation lane records where a Receiver location is assigned to multiple Source locations. The internal table contains the fields: material, source location, Receiver location, 'From' date, and 'To' date.

For example,

Material Source Receiver From date To date

12345 XX01 XX02 1/1/1999 5/31/2006

12345 XX03 XX02 5/1/2006 12/31/9999

I need to flag that material 12345 is assigned to two Source locations for the 5/1/2006-5/31/2006 period. Does anyone have any ideas on an efficient way of finding these situations?

Thanks and best regards,

If your table is declared something like below I think my code will be pretty efficient. If the table is not sorted and has a lot of entries the code will be slow:

data itab type sorted table of xyz with non-unique key

material source receiver.


<prime> type xyz,

<duplicate> type xyz.

loop at itab assigning <prime>.

loop at itab assigning <duplicate>

where material = <prime>-material

and source = <prime>-source

and receiver = <prime>-receiver.

if <duplicate>-from between <prime>-from

and <prime>-to

or <duplicate>-to between <prime>-from and <prime>-to.

write:/ 'bingo!'........"etc
