    Hi,

    Any table that starts with a field - CLNT contains data that are client dependent. There will be very few tables that do not have CLNT as the first field. All the data in these tables are client independent.

    For example, almost all transaction data is client dependent.

    Hope, this explains,

    S. Siva

    Tables which are having MANDT field is called as client dependent tables. Tables which are not having MANDT field is called as client dependent tables.

    Client independent

    a table/object that is valid for all clients in a system. E.g table SCC4. This table will be the same no matter which client you view it from. If you try to make changes in SCC4, you'll get a popup with a warning that the table is cross client.

    Client dependent

    a table/object that is only valid for the client it is changed in. E.g the user tables USR*. You have to create users in each client.

    Hi,

    There are two types of objects in SAP, client dependent and client independent.

    Objects used in several clients are called client independent while objects used in a specific client is called client dependent. To identify if a table is client dependent, one can use tcodes SE11 or SE12. In the table field attributes, if the MANDT field is present that table is client dependent.

    A client-dependent table has the field MANDT of data type CLNT, which indicates Client id.

    A client-independent table does not have this field.

    Data which can be access by all user are client independent (no mandt field in table). Data which can be access by some specific user are client dependent (use mandt field in table)
