Access variables of caller (program)

Hi there,

following situation:

A program calls a standard function module. This function module calls many subsequent function modules.

One of those subsequent function modules is a self created user-exit.

In there I want to access variables (the input parameters) from the caller. What's the best possibility to achieve that?


-> FM1

-> FM2

-> Z_FM3

Access variables from Z_INPUT

Should i save the required information in a shared object?

Or would it be better to directly access the variables on the stack: (Z_INPUT)variable?

Any other solutions?

Thanks in advance!

    Hello Andreas,

    I would not use the ABAP stack to access the variable -

    • Directly accessing the ABAP stack via ASSIGN (prog_name)variable is not released for customers. I tend to use it only in cases where there's no other way to access a global variables (of standard programs).
    • If the variable in question is a local variable, then you cannot access it via ABAP stack.

    So i would save the variable in the (relevant)memory & access it later in the exit FM 😊
