    Every transaction caries two types of data: Header Data and Transactional/Item data.

    The header data is stored in Header Tables and the Transactional data is stored in Item tables.

    ex:

    <b>VBAK</b> is header table for the Sales Documents data which stores the Sales Document number, date created, time of creation, name of the person created the Sales document and the quotation/inquiry is valid from details.

    <b>VBAP</b> is item table for the sales document which stores the data of Sales document client, material number, sales document item and other material data for that sales document.

    Rewards if useful.

    Header tables will have the header details of the process.

    If you table Purchasing EKKO will have the header data and from here you can select all header level only, if you need other information you need to depend on item level table(s)... for example EKPO.

    header tables reduce duplication of data, it contains common data and transaction tables items then contains data relating to each line item for example

    table BKPF contains information like document date, fiscal period, user name etc

    this information is common to all line items which are stored in table BSEG but will not be repeated in this table but instead the table can linked using the following keys MANDT, BUKRS, BELNR and GJAHR.

    i hope you find this useful
