Hi All,

While going through VBRK table in SE11 I came across VBTYP_EXT. I understand that it is for Document Category Extension. But my question is why it not present in VBAK ? Isnt Document Category Extension field required at VBAK level?

Hi Kamlesh,

Thanks for your response but my question is why VBTYP_EXT is not present at VBAK Level?


Thanks for making it clear.

This can be seen in VBUK. But I too need to understand its significance. Could you please elaborate more about it as to why it is used and when?


Yes this field appears in VBUK and VBRK but why not in VBAK?

Significance-This is document category extension field. Suppose you want to define some customized document types and you have already used up all the entries in VBTYP then you can use this VBTYP_EXT.
