    Hi Rayudu,

    As far as my knowledge is concerned, we cannot modify the key values manually in a table maintanence directly.

    We can only modify non key field's values only.

    If you still want to modify the key field values, then you need to do that using a program by the Update statement.

    Thanks,

    Ravi

    I'm afraid that table maintenance really isn't suitable if users need to change key fields. A custom program would be better.

    Another alternative is to change the table so that the original keys are changed to non-key fields and create a pseudo key instead using events.
