Hi Shubham,

The parameter tab is used for many purposes.

One of the main uses is to pre-define fields in SAP.

For example - In Transaction ME21 there is a field for "site".

If you press F1 on the field and then press on the technical info (The spanner icon) - You will see that the field parameter ID is called "WRK"

If you go into SU01 --> Paramaters

If you put in "WRK" and then the value AAA - This will mean that every time you go into ME21 the value AAA will be automatically maintained in the Site field.

It will also apply to any other transaction in SAP where you are able to put in Site.

This helps improve efficiency and saves a couple seconds here and there.

ABAPers can also program a check on a parameter.


We did not want users to access a specific transaction during the day.(7AM - 5PM)

The program would check the user - if the user had the value "X" in a specific Z parameter - It would allow them to access it.

Hope that makes sense.

Kind Regards
