    If you used the table control wizard, it should have written some code in the flow logic of the screen. Inside the LOOP in the PAI module, there should be a module with the word MODIFY in it. Double click it, now you should be in the code of the MODULE. There should be a line of code already there that is updating the internal table. Here is where you can write the record to another internal table with the same structure, for example.....

    ITAB is the main table

    ITAB_CHG is the table which will hold the changed records.

    For deleting, you can do something simular, have an ITAB_DLT, where you are adding records that are being deleted from the main ITAB. When saving at the end of the transaction you would process these ITABs accordingly. Make sense?

    in the table control you can add two flags at the end of the internal table, one for modified lines and one for deleted lines. Mark the flags in a PAI module when data is changed or data is selected to being deleted.










    It would be easier to save data if you only select modified and deleted lines to update your table.
