WORKFLOW: How to pass values from one step to another ?

Hello Workflow Gurus...

I'm new to Workflows but getting there! The challenge I have right now is the following:

Imagine a workflow with 3 steps (activities) and using a custom Business Object which we'll call ZBUSOBJ for now...

Step 1 - Calls method METH1 of ZBUSOBJ. This method calls a Z Tcode which creates data in a Z Custom Table.

Step 2 - Decision Step (not much to sya about it !!)

Step 3 - Calls method METH2 of ZBUSOBJ. This method calls a Standard SAP Tcode and my customer wants some screen fields to be populated using some values entered at Step 1 and currently stored in my Z Custom Table from Step 1. These fields that needs to be populated are not table-key fields, just standard fields.

I know I will need to use some "bindinds" mechanism but I just can't figure out how I can re-use data captured in STEP 1 to populate screen-fields in a standard SAP TCode in STEP 3.

Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.

    1/WF has workflow container, this like global parameters for WF.

    2/Step has binding where you assign workflow variable to Step container variable.

    Here you identify what is pass from WF container and what is pass back to container

    3/You have to define variable on the WF side and variable on the step side.

      Hello Jan,

      Thanks for your answer... but I still don't know how to make ensure that the SAP transaction called in my Step 3 will be able to reuse data coming from my Step 1... I do understand that the data will be provided from a container (workflow or task... tbd) but how can make sure that the transaction will use this data ?
