Updating a structure/table that is not in the user exit parameters

Is it even possible to update a structure or table outside the parameters? Expert Axel Angeli weighs in.

If a structure or table is not included in the exporting parameters of a user exit, is there a way to update that structure/table?
Generally not. It means that SAP did not want you to change the data. If there is another user-exit where you get the data as import parameter, you may consider an "EXPORT to MEMORY" or better: creating two function modules like "Z_TABLE_PUT" and "Z_TABLE_GET" that transfer the table into a global variable of the function group.
