    hi,

    to be precise, Tables contains some data in it like when you create a PO all the data will be stored in LFA1 and may be some other tables. so when you want to recheck the data u can goto se16 and see the details in lfa1 table where as, structures do not contain any data to retrieve.

    cheers,

    anil.

    Hi,

    The main difference is in Table the data is stored physically but in structure data gets in if any relavant programme is run.Hence structure can be compared with temporary memory and Table as real memory.For example CEKKO is the structure which gets data from EKKO table.

    Dear Prakash,

    Structures are constructed identically as tables but the only difference is no

    database table is generated from them
