Updating database tables

Hi,

In one of my custom FMs, I am updating database tables (for ex: likp or edid4) using modify statement..

according to sap license, is it like that we should not update database tables directly ? if so, what are the 'licensed' ways to update database tables?

Thank you,

    I dont think updating SAP Database tables is a licencing issue. It is more from a Validity issue. Updating tables directly can bypass a number of checks that a transaction would do if the same data was fed through it. So basically the data will be loaded without teh standard validations and this may cause a lot of problems later based on the data uploaded. It is always recomended ot update data through some of the standard FMs or Bapis that are available which will take care of all these validations.

    Hi

    You can always update any table using the modify statement. This does not require any licence key. There will be many occassions wherein one will have to insert records into the standard tables. There is no seperate licensed way to update database tables.
