    Do u mean client dependant/independand Tables???..

    Client dependant means the tables are changable depends on clients like 100/200.

    Client independant means the is NOT changable depends on clients. if these tables are changed that reflects in every client in that system.

    I think this will solve your problem

    Hi

    Client Independent: These objects are not specific to any client. And it is universal which can be viewed, changed across the clients.

    Client Dependant: These are the objects can be viewed, changed for the client for whom it has been assigned. Other clients do not have access on these objects.

    Regards

    Hi Purnendu,

    Client dependent and independent :

    Client Independent: These objects are not specific to any client. And it is universal which can be viewed, changed across the clients.

    Client Dependant: These are the objects can be viewed, changed for the client for which it has been assigned. Other clients do not have access on these objects.

    In SAP, all objects are finally stored as tables. "Mandt" is key field which determines whether the object is client dependant or not.

    Client Independent transport requests will make the transported objects available across the clients. And Client dependent transport request make the objects available only for the client mentioned by field "Mandt.

    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)

    Reward if helpful

    Hi Purnendu Mohanty

    Client dependent or independent transfer requirements include client specific or cross client objects in the change requests. Workbench objects like SAPscripts are client specific, some entries in customizing are client independent. If you display the object list for one change request, and then for each object the object attributes, you will find the flag client specific. If one object in the task list has this flag on, then that transport will be client dependent.

    1. report - client independent (just like development objects)

    2. BDC data - client dependent ofcourse

    3. BDC Program - client INDEPENDENT (bcos its just a program)

    4. smartforms - client independent (bcos an FM is called)

    5. sapscript - client dependent.

    u can logically separate the data with this concept. as already told, if u have MANDT first field in table it is client dependent. that means u can see this only in this client. not in others.

    when an object is client independent, like a report it can be used across clients. a report has nothing to do with data. so an independent object. can be used in any client.

    Reward if useful to u

    Award points if it adds information.
