Pass Parameter to a an already opened transaction using call transaction from ALV Report.

Hi ,

I have developed a report which will take values from 'VA01' tcode using 'SET PARAMETER ID' and creates a report.

Now when the user double clicks on any line of the ALV report,the values from that line should be passed to the same va01 transaction.

Basically my report will have material numbers and that double clicked material number should be made available to the Item overview tab of VA01.

    Thanks to @Moshe Naveh who found this question for me....

    User exit USEREXIT_CUST_MATERIAL_READ in MV45AFZB is triggered when the material number changes. You can do a call screen in there to a custom screen where you can insert your own code including the ALV. I have used this technique to populate fields in the item tab myself.

    Sorry in the delay but I couldn't find this again.....

    Have you tried call transaction statement?


    You can find example code in sap archives.

    Use the "batch input" capability of CALL TRANSACTION ... USING bdcdata.

    This way you can fill screen fields and navigate between screens automatically.

    Please refer to the ABAP documentation for more information + SCN forum archived threads.

    • Hi Sandra /Richard, Thanks.

      Yes this is my POC of whether and how my logic will work.

      So now what i have achieved is , in the user exit i am having a pop up screen which will be invoked when one of the columns in the item overview tab is clicked(F4). --> No issues , this works fine.

      Next i use this FM 'ABAP4_CALL_TRANSACTION' to call my alv( which is attached to the tcode) with the parameters in the va01 screen.

      Works perfect.

      I have to accept the fact that clicking on any line in alv will not place the contents in my va01 item lines.

      Thanks again.

    To explain better.

    My scenario is - In va01 transaction when i create an order

    • 1)I enter material/item in the item overview tab.
    • 2)I go to the Deals over ride column and press F4, this shows me the deals that are available for the selected item (custom).
    • 3)Then I open a ztcode and that opens up an ALV with list of items that qualifies the deal (custom)
    • 4)Now When I double click on any line of the item that is double clicked , it should be placed in va01 item overview tab in the next line.-- How will i achieve this??
