Introduction
Parameters can be used to set default values for frequently used fields in SAP. In order to be able set a
default value for a particular field, it must have been assigned a Parameter ID.

Eg:
If majority of material creation is for material type “FERT” and Industry Sector “A – Apparel and
Footwear” for a particular user ID, then you can assign those values to relevant parameters against the
user ID. Once It’s assigned, “FERT” and “A – Apparel and Footwear” will appear as default values for that
user for MM01 transaction, where as user can change them if required.

Steps to find the Parameter ID
As long as the field has been assigned a Parameter ID; you will be able to find the relevant parameter ID
using below method.

 Go to the relevant field in the transaction


 Press “F1” in the relevant field



 Press


 Under Filed Data section you should be able to find the relevant Parameter ID. (As long as the
field has been assigned a Parameter ID)

You have 2 methods of doing this.

Method 1:
 Call the transaction SU01
 Enter relevant User ID and click on button



Or


Method 2:
 Go to Menu option; System -> User Profile -> Own Data


 Go to tab
 Enter copied “Parameter ID” under field and maintain required default value
under


 Same manner add the Parameter ID for “Material Type”

Now when I call the transaction MM01, Industry Section “A – Apparel and Footwear” and Material Type
“FERT” appears as default values.
