karoncdas_31,

Function modules does not have a direct parameter that deals with Select Options, below are few suggestions for using the select Options:

1) Convert the select option into a Internal table in your program and pass the internal table as a tables parameter in function module. You can internally use this table in your select queries.

2) Another work around would creating a parameter which is very similar to the structure of the select option and use the same. You can follow the below link to understand this option.

SELECT OPTIONS IN FM

Hi

Just don't use TABLES type of parameter. It's obsolete. Instead use IMPORTING or EXPORTING, with full table type definition.

Select options is just an internal table, with a specific line structure.


Kind regards,

One small clarification, which is likely not relevant in the original context of the question.

TABLES parameters are obsolete except for in RFC enabled function modules. For those they still have a legitimate role as the enconding and transfer of the data is done in a different way (in most cases with far better performance).
