Maintenance dialog with sort, filter, group functiones (similar to ALV-GRID)

Hi all,

we have some nested tables (like BUT000, BUT020 BUT050).

We have the requirement from agents

a) to show depending entries for BUT000, BUT020 BUT050 in one row

b) the agents want to sort, filter etc. like in ALV-Grid

c) edit, save, delete, insert entries


a) & b) could be developed with an ALV-Grid

c) could be developed with generated maintanance view (from SE11)

--> but (c) has no filter, sort etc.

But I need a, b, c in one function.

Is there a kind of "new maintanance view", with sort filter functions?

Many thanks

    Good question. Many hopefuls asked the same before but I believe that there is no "new maintenance view", at least in ECC, alas. Can't speak for S/4HANA.

    You can do some things with the SM30 events and maintenance views (SE11) but, as you said, no sort or filter simply because it's not ALV, it's just good old table control. At the same time editable ALV is officially not supported by SAP.

    I guess the answer to your question would be to build a custom editable ALV but you did not hear it from me.

    As a side note - maybe some kind of Github project for "new SM30" is in order?

    If you do have a maintenance view, check out SE16N - you can sort, filter, etc. When you press the little edit button on the toolbar, it should take you to the generated maintenance screen for that record, just like in SM30.

    EDIT - Oh, I forgot, if you do not have a maintenance view, you should be able to edit directly in the ALV.

    • In our EHP6 system SE16N doesn't work like that, at least in the QA system. There is no Edit button at all. And if I enter the maintenance view name it actually bypasses ALV and takes me straight to SM30 in display mode.

      But yeah, what OP has in mind would be like SE16N with editing capabilities (like we had with that &sap_edit or something secret code before SAP plugged that hole).
