Hello Mr. Jaiswal,

1.

SE16 is primarily a Development Tool and is not intended to be used as a general purpose table query tool.

2.

SM30 can be used to display and update table data. It provides a more complex interface and more functionality than SE16.

HI Subham,

Most of the companies won't allow users to use SE16. They will give access SM30 if user need to maintain Z Customized table or view certain standard View tables.

Not all the table can be displayed with SM30. Only those transparent table with Table Maintenance Generator can be display with SM30.

For your question why SM30 has lesser number of record compare to SE16. regarding this you can check whether there is coding in event. How to check the event in SM30 you can refer to link link
