How to assign characteristics values using "Check Table"

Hello Everyone!

I am new to this forum as well as Variant Configuration. First of all I would like to thank each one of you for posting ton of information in the forums. The information is a treasure for a rookie like me and it not only answers most of the questions but also provide lot of insight. Great Job Everyone!!

OK, coming to my problem, it will be a basic and simple issue for many of the experts. I want to use the Check Table functionality to assign values to a characteristics. I read the help deck and followed the below steps.

Step-1: Created a characteristics CHAR_TEST with data type character, value assignment - multiple values (Although in the help library it was mentioned that tables should be used only for single-value characteristics).

Step-2: Using T-code CU61 & CU60 created a table VC_TEST and added the CHAR_TEST as the only key field. Saved the table as 'Released'.

Step-3: Went back to CT04 (Change mode) > Values>Other Value Check>Check Table

Now when I enter VC_TEST, I get an error "Check Table VC_TEST not found". Can anyone help me in pointing out my mistake?

Thanks,

Manu

    Hi Manu,

    Yes, check table is used to check the Database table.

    If you want use your own table as check table, Create a ZTABLE in se11 and use.

    Note : Check tables with more than one key field are not supported. However, if you enter a function module for checking values, you can refer to any check table in your own coding.

    Hi Manu,

    the check table should refer to a database table, not variant table.

    Best regards

      Hello Tamas,

      Thanks so much for your reply. Your reply is helpful and pointed out the mistake I made. I was using the wrong T-code and was trying variant table when I should have created a database table. However, I don't have developer key and have to take ABAPer's help to create a db table for me, which I think my lead will not like.

      Thanks for your help on this!

      Regards,

      Manu
