Calling a method with implicitly giving formal parameter names in OOABAP ?

My Method Declaration



VALUE(im_toc) TYPE char30

VALUE(im_check) TYPE char50

Implementation of the method mentioned above.

METHOD fill_finaltab.
  DATA: lwa_final TYPE gty_final.
  lwa_final-toc = im_toc.
  lwa_final-check = im_check.
  APPEND lwa_final TO gt_final.
  CLEAR lwa_final.


fill_finaltab( im_toc = 'text1' im_check = 'text2' ).

The way I want to call the method.

fill_finaltab( text1 text2 text3 text4 text5 ).

Yes, I want to Omit the formal parameter names just for convenience sake as I would use it many times in a program.

I have tried making my import parameters optional, declared via reference and value, used preferred parameter option and so on.

Basically, I tried all the permutation and combinations while declaring the method signature.

The code works fine but I want to learn why cannot I send parameters just as I send them in a perform(old school)? perform f_data: PARAM1 PARAM2 PARAM3 ETC.

NOTE: this is not my assignment nor office work but just my personal research.
