    Hi CONS SAP,

    You can use se16n transaction. This is very user friendly trnasaction. You may use it like this:

    1) Start transaction SE16n.

    2) Type the table name and press ENTER.

    3) Type the string "&sap_edit" into the command line and press Enter.

    4) Enter your selection criteria and press F8.

    Now you can easily change/delete/add the lines you want and then save.

    All Changes are recorded in the tables SE16N_CD_DATA and SE16N_CD_KEY.

    But I would request you to keep in mind the suggestions from Vijay Babu Dudla

    Hi,

    Explain the method.

    Entry on a SE11 transaction and put the table. Select the button of entries (Contents), and execute. Put on the record to modify and see the other view.

    Now, put in the command space, /h (to start debbuging mode), and press the green tick (Enter).

    Now, select the variable CODE, and put the nex value 'ANVO'. Save this value in the variable and press F8 to exit this debbuging mode.

    Now, you can modify the value of the field and save this value with disquette icon.

    Best Regards

    if you are trying on some test table then it is ok. but don't update any transactional data like that. it is not good practice.
