    .APPEND structures AND CUSTOMIZING INCLUDES.

    these are the two methods.. but customizing includes we, as a developers do not use.

    generally we use .APPEND structures to modify standard tables.

    note that we need an access key to modify atandard tables.

    we can create an apend structure and add that structure to the standard table at the end.

    note that .append structures should only be added only at the end.

    that is the reason we use .append structures to modify standard tables.as we should not include a field in the middle and disturb the original order of the standard table fields as it may effect many objects depending on the standard table.

    but Some standard tables for which there is a LONG datatype field can never be modified.

    the reason is the LONG datatype field should always be there at the end and also .APPEND strutures should always be there at the end. there will be a conflict. so, some standard tables can not be appended.

    Hi,

    Modifying standard SAP tables is not recommended by SAP.

    You can alwyz extended/add new fields to the table.

    Open the table in SE11,

    Click APPEND STRUCTURE.

    Add the new fields & activate.

    Best regards,

    Prashant

    Hi

    You can only add some fields based on requirement by appending the APPEND structure in the std table

    This happens when you place some fields on the related Transaction screen using screen exit and then add fields and they needs to be populated

    so just simply we can't add the fields into table.

    Hi Jyothsna

    you can add one or more fields in standard SAP table using APPEND structure.

    for this go to se11 click on button append structure give the field names. save it.

    however it is not recommended to modify standard tables in SAP.

    Hi,

    Modifying standard SAP tables is not recommended by SAP.

    You can modify the tables by extended/add new fields to the table.

    You can add the fileds to table by using <b>APPEND or INCLUDE STRUCTURE</b>

    Go to table in SE11 click on change button,

    in that screen Click APPEND STRUCTURE.

    Add the new fields & activate.

    <b>Rewards with points if helpful.</b>
