Output table fields to a list

Output table fields to a list

This tip is excerpted from Matt Wong's SAP Basis site.

When you're looking at the structure of a table, SAP will let you print the structure, but it won't let you save the structure. This can be annoying. This report outputs the table structure to a list. At this point you can use the System->List->Save->Local file command to save the list to a file.
