During PBO processing, this statement turns the following standard menu items in the GUI status of the dynpro either on using the addition ON or off using the addition OFF:

  • System → User Profile → Hold Data
    This function saves the entries made by the user in the input fields of the dynpro for the duration of the current user session. Each time the screen of the dynpro is displayed, these values are passed to the corresponding input fields as default values. This overwrites the values transported from the ABAP program.
  • System → User Profile → Set Data
    This function works like the 'Hold Data' function except that here, the corresponding input fields are no longer ready for input for all subsequent calls of the dynpro.
  • System → User Profile → Delete Data
    This function deletes all saved data and makes the input fields that were locked using 'Set Data' ready for input again for all subsequent calls of the dynpro.

Each time PBO processing starts, the setting made in the static properties of the dynpro under Hold Data is configured so that execution of SET HOLD DATA during PAI processing does not have an effect on the display of the subsequent screen.


The menu items above can be selected in every GUI status but only take effect when they are activated in the static properties of the dynpro using Hold Data or the statement SET HOLD DATA.
