    Hi Rajkumar,

    Thanks for your reply.

    But I am using ABAP OOPS to develop this report.

    Or I have to declare it as IMPORT parameters in method?

    Hi Arpita,

    As per my understanding you can't use the global variables. But you can use the field symbol concept to get the program variables in your global class. But again you have to modify the method. you can use the syntax :


    Rather I would suggest you to create two Function Module - one is SET FM and another GET FM under same function group.

    through the custom program you pass all the program variables to the global variables in the function group and you can call the GET FM in your class method to retrieve the same and use.

    Whenever you want to pass the additional variable and just change in the respective FM calls. You no need to change the import / export parameters of the method, as your class is global.

    No, and you shouldn't even try 😊 Why, what's the difficulty in passing parameters?

      Hi Arpita,

      It wont be good design as class is global it should be independent.

      Create local class and inherit the the global class and redefine it according to program as global variable available in local class

      Thanks & Regards,

    Any attribute that have public visibility in your class is accessible from your program .

    So you can use those as "parameters" .

    Saying that it is exactly like using global variables which I hate .

    So please use method call .

    You can define the parameter types of your class in the class itself .
