Maintenance view of two tables

I need to update two tables Header and Item with the hepl of maintenance view.There structure is as follows :

Header - GRPKEY (Pr. Key)


Items :- GRPKEY ( Foreign key - check table Header-GRPKEY)

fieldname ( Key)

descr type char255

Now i am creating maintenance view using header as base table. In this case its not showing fields of items in View fields tab and i can't have those fields for data entry.

If i use items table as base table when i create data through this view header table doesn't get updated.

Please suggest.

    Have you added the item table into the view, using the "relationships" button on the "Table/join conditions" tab?

      My real question is, Will a maintenance view really enables me to enter data into two tables simultaneously?


      Is it just one table that I can enter data into and the fields from other table will appear based on the join condition?

      All SAP documentations talk about entering data into multiple tables using a maintenance view. But it was not practically possible for me when I tried.
