    Hi ,

    LFA1 IS A database table.....Finally all the vendor related data is stored here.

    *LFA1 is a temporary structure...

    When we enter values in tcode XK01...First the data is stored in *LFA1 and later all the data is transfered to LFA1....

    Hi

    There's no difference: *LFA1 is only the image of LFA1, so it's a way to use a work area structurated like LFA1, so for example u can do a select on LFA1 twice.
