1) You can (with a key)

2) It is not a recommended practice

Such questions have already been asked on SCN before (this would apply to all the standard tables) and it is common knowledge, in general. Kindly make some effort to search before posting or just ask a more experienced teammate first.

It is impossible to "suggest" any other solution since you haven't shared the business requirement.

Did you look in SE11 for Enhancement Category of the table (should be 'Can be Enhanced (character-type or numeric)' so you should be allowed to append a Z or Y (your namespace) structure to the table.
But 'Append fields' is not the original requirement, What is the intended purpose, where will they be displayed/updated?

Hi Raymond ,

Thanks for reply .

What is the intended purpose, where will they be displayed/updated?

Append field is to be updated via save event customer exit in table MHIS and after which that will used in reports.

i would like to know  

1 Can we perform operation like modify on standard sap table MHIS via save event customer exit ?

2 Is it good/recommended practice to modify standard sap table or we go for z table ?

Please share your experience and suggest.

You could theorically update the zz fields in some update task FM executed after SAP standard ('after save'), but It would be much better to find some enhancement to change the zz_fields in internal memory 'before' SAP registers its own update task FMs, that would insure better data consistency, also you would get correct logging. (So, find some 'before save' point)
