input parameter

Formal parameter of a procedure, to which the value of an actual parameter is passed at the time of a call and which is evaluated in the procedure. Input parameters for which the pass by reference is defined cannot be succeeded by a write access in the procedure. Input parameters are defined for methods and function modules using IMPORTING. Therefore, they are also called IMPORTING parameters. For subroutines, input parameters are defined using USING. They are not protected against a write access during the pass by reference.
