    You typically create table maintenance for a table that contains customizing data, which is failry low in volume and is manually entered by the user or configurer.

    hi Rama,

    table maintenance we create for table where we want to maintain entries manually. These tables are mostly used for customizing, control program run, save organisation data, etc. Usually there are not many entries in these tables.

    Hi Rama

    what i have done in a table maintenance is

    we have one Z-transaction and this transaction is executed to only particular users and these users are maintained in Ztable OK

    and every time we need to change these users and this is by doing table maint for these table by simply assigning one transaction to this table......

    for Ztansaction we simply retrive the data from the ztable and we will check with sy-uname.....

    I hope u understand...

    Hi,

    If you want to maintain(Create , Update , Modify ) less data by a specific user at a non-regular intervals . By using Table Maintanace this will be very easy for both the end users and developers too.

    With regards,
