are there global parameters in SAP

Just wondering if there is also an option to define global parameters with global values.

I know there are parameters but those I have to attach to a user with a value.

there is also an user_dir with AL11 which is used for directories .

I look for instance for an requirement where I can maintain email adresses.

Now I have hardcoded it in ABAP but it happens from time to time due to reorganisations that emails change.

CASE ekko-bukrs.
          WHEN '1600'.
            so_sender = 'inkoopsomewhere.nl'.
          WHEN OTHERS.
            so_sender = 'inkoopotherdepartment.nl'.
        ENDCASE.

it is in these cases not possible to put it in customizing in organisation structure since other emails are used there.

I want to be able to maintain the specific mail adresses in 1 spot. in the example of the programm above there are also other programms with the same mail adresses hard coded.

it there something like global parameters or an other option to maintain email adresses or other objects ?

or with other words, define global abap independent constants.

the table tvarv for instance looks promising but is als a bit of an abuse and limited in var value length since these vars are meant for report use.

kind regards

arthur
