How to transport SAP table structures from one system to another

Learn how to transport SAP table structures from one system to another under different SAP products and versions in this adminstration tip.

Is there a way to download file structures (SE11) from one SAP R/3 system in server 'X' version 4.6c to another...

SAP R/3 system in server 'Y' and version 6.0? I have developed something that should run in various systems, but it seems to be a problem to be able to transport the information all over due to the differences of field types in the various releases etc. Do I have to install everything manually?

Just a little extra info: 4.6.c is a normal automotive system and the 6.0 is a BW system.

It seems that you're asking how to transport a table structure from one system to another under different SAP products and versions. If that's the case, please take a look at SAP note 330267 (Transports between Basis Releases 4.6* and 6*). Technically, you can create a transport via SE01 and enter the objects there so they can be imported later into another system. If you simply want to export the structure of a table into a file please do the following:

Run SE11 and enter the table in question. Click Display.
Select Utilities --> Runtime Object --> Display.

After displaying the runtime objects for the table in question click Views. Then, select List Output.On the next screen you will be able to select System --> List --> Save --> Local File.
