Input Parameters

Formal parameter of a procedure to which the value of an actual parameter is passed when the procedure is called and which is evaluated in the procedure. Input parameters for which pass by reference is defined cannot be accessed by a write in the procedure. Input parameters are defined for methods and function modules using IMPORTING, which is why they are also called IMPORTING parameters. In subroutines, input parameters are defined using USING and are not protected against writes when using pass by reference.
