    Dear Bunty,

    First you create one custom(z/y) table or maintenance view, after that goto menu bar utilities-->click Table maintain generation

    After that mention authorization group as &NC& and mention any function group( create custom group in se80 and activate )

    One step Overview screen: In one step

    Maintenance type: set radio button: one step

    Maint. screen: Over view screen: 123(any w/o 1000). after that click create button(left upper corner) after that save.

    Testing for single step: got SM30 click new entries button:

    Here we maintain new entries and save button also same screen(overview screen only).

    Two step single screen: here we mention two screen numbers as overview screen and single

    screen.

    After click create button(left upper corner) and save and test it in SM30.

    Here two screen are displays 1. before clicking new entry screen and after click the new entry screen.

    You check the screen numbers through F1( Click F1 function key and goto technical information.

    These are the main difference in one step(overview) and two step (over view & single screen).

    Regards,

    Abbas.

    Hi Bunty,

    single step is useful for small tables (only a few short fields) where the maintenance screen will show all data without scrolling.

    But if you have lots of fields or some long text fields, the overview maintenance screen can't show all data. Then it is better to use two screens (overview screen and detail screen).

    Regards,

    Klaus

    Hi Bunty,

    "The difference is that with one screen you can enter multiple entries at one time.

    Incase of 2 step the key fields are seen first and then selecting them you can go to on the 2nd screen to add additonal details." from Ankur Parab

    With One step, all the operation in 'Overview' screen, Below figures show with Two step:

    Overview Screen:

    Click 'New Entries', into 'Single screen':

    Save:

    Back to 'Overview Screen'

    regards,

    Archer

    hi,

    In se11 , you can define the TMG for a table using the

    Here you can define the one step or two step.

    one step: Only overview screen is created i.e. the Table Maintenance Program will have only one screen where you can add, delete or edit records.

    Two step: Two screens namely the overview screen and Single screen are created. The user can see the key fields in the first screen and can further go on to edit further details.

    Example of one step:
