How to create or change SAP tables without coding or debugging

Learn this SAP shortcut on how to create or change SAP tables without going through SE16 coding and debugging.

To create or change the content of a table (usually for test purposes), we typically use transaction code SE16...

to write a report program or debug. But here is how you can do it easily through a SAP standard technique without coding or debugging.

Code:

  1. Call transaction SE16N and enter the required table name to be edited (for example, KNA1).
  2. Type '&sap_edit' in the command window and hit Enter. The message "SAP editing function is activated" will display.
  3. Click on the execute online button (F8). Now the table will be in edit mode.
