    Hello,

    A .include is SAP's way to reuse fields that could be common to many tables/structures.

    A .append is where customers can add their own custome fields to a tables/structure

    Regards

      Append structures allow you to attach fields to a table without actually having to modify the table itself. An append structure can only belong to exactly one table.

      includes allow you to use the same structure in multiple tables. The include statement must already exist in the SAP table or structure.

    1. Append Structures

    Append structures can only be assigned to a single table.

    Append structures are created in the custome rnamespace ( ZZ or YY)

    In case of new versions of the standard table during upgrade, the append structures are automatically appended to the new version of the standard table

    Append structures can not be used with cluster and pool tables

    Append structures are created in transaction SE11. Display the standard table fields and press the Append structure button.

    When you press the button, SAP sugests a name for the new append structure. After you has accepted the name,

    a screen will be shown where you can enter the new fields.

    Remember to activate.

    2. Include Structure / Customizing Includes

    Some of the SAP standard tables contains special include statements called Customizing includes. In contrast to Append structures,

    Note that customizing includes are created by SAP, but the customer supply the fields for the include.

    Customizing includes begin with CI_ and is part of the customer namespace

    One Customizing include can be inserted into more than one table.

    You can find Customizing includes in SE11 under structures.

    Try to take a look at table RKPF which uses the Customizing include CI_COBL (In an IDES system). Next try to add a field to CI_COBL, and activate it. If you go back to table RKPF you will se that your new field has been added.

    Hope this Helps
