Is there a reason why you can't use parameters or select-options? Those are the two selection screen elements that are designed for user input. If you only need standard selection fields, you can use the report category to have certain fields appear without directly coding for them. Go to SE38 and open your program attributes. Now click on the button "HR report category". You can choose either "Master Data (infotypes)" or "Payroll results (Cluster)". If you click on the dropdown next to either selection, you will get a list of the report categories. Each category has a description of the types of fields it automatically includes. Select a category and save. Now when you go to execute your program you will see the new set of selection fields on your screen without any extra coding.

If you need to allow the user to input entire records of data, then you should set up your screen for file input (user uploads a file to the program, then in the program you parse out the file record into separate fields).
