How to avoid using constants ?



I am starting a new project and I am thinking of a way to avoid using constants.

For example, in a report, it selects all the order with types ZLN and ZLB.

I know that I have several possibilities :

- hard code it in the program (using constants which I want to avoid)

- create a specific table with all the types that I want to select (this may be the best solution but it can be very long -> too much table to create)

- put the parameter in the selection screen (but then we have to put default values which come back to the same problem)


So, I didn't found any perfect solution, Do you know what is the method recommended by SAP ?

What kind of technics did you use in you projects ?

Thank you for your help !
