    Look at the follow example. I hope it's usefull for you.

    CLASS mar_test DEFINITION.
    "   Defining a method with a returning parameter
        METHODS get_value
                RETURNING value(r_data) TYPE REF TO data.
    ENDCLASS.                    "mar_test DEFINITION
    *       CLASS mar_test IMPLEMENTATION
      METHOD get_value.
        FIELD-SYMBOLS <variable> TYPE ANY.
        DATA v_variable TYPE char2.
    "   Here we're creating a new reference to Data v_variable
        CREATE DATA r_data LIKE v_variable.
    "   Moving the reference to a field-symbols
        ASSIGN r_data->* TO <variable>.
    "   Manipulating the content of the reference through field-symbols <variable>
        MOVE 'AB' TO <variable>.
      ENDMETHOD.                    "get_value
    ENDCLASS.                    "mar_test IMPLEMENTATION
    DATA o_mar_test TYPE REF TO mar_test.
    DATA v_variable TYPE char2.
    DATA v_value TYPE REF TO data.
    FIELD-SYMBOLS <variable> TYPE ANY.
      CREATE OBJECT o_mar_test.
    " The method returns the reference of a data into v_value
      v_value = o_mar_test->get_value( ).
    " You can't access directly the Content of reference so, you must use
    " dereferencing operator ->* to move values to a field-symbols
      ASSIGN v_value->* TO <variable>.
    " After make the dereferencing you can move the value of field-symbols to any Compatible Data
      MOVE <variable> TO v_variable.
    " Now you can work with a Data that contains the value returned from method
      WRITE v_variable.

    check this.

    <fs_x> type any.

    create data ref type ....."your type here.

    assign ref->* to <fs_x>.

    ************fs_x contains the dta pointed by ref.
