Hi sdn,

Suppose i created a functional module with some input parameters for

transferring the data into db tables.

and also i declared tables also.

is it possible to transfer data with out passing the parameters?

And explain me those Import, Export,changing and tables parameters.

Hi Phani,

It is not possible to transfer the data without passing the parameters.

Chek these links for further information on import,export, changing and tables parameters:

Hope this helps you.

refer to following link

you can not pass data without using parameters..and if you do not use import export or table parameters then that function module will be of no use.

HI phani,

In function modules the parameters are passed by reference by default.So there is no question of not passing parameters.You just have the choice that you can pass the parameters by value if not by reference.

Best of luck,

Hi Phani,

You can make your import parameters fo the function module as optional by the checkbox for optional also u can provide default values for the parameters in the FM itself. In this way u can call the FM without passing any values to rhe parameters..

Hope this helps,
