Activate option translate(sm30) in ZTABLE maintenance object

Hi everybody,

I'm need to know, how to activate the option "translate" using the SM30 transaction, for my table maintenance object, somebody who know if: is it an attribute for the table or the maintenance object, i'm checking with another standard maintenance objects and some of tableviews have activated this option.

The first table is ZTABL1 with fields X, Y keys and another field Z(no key field).

I define a text table ZTABL2 to translate the field Z : mandt, spras, text_Z.

To make the connection between the 2 tables you must define in my text table a foreign key for field Z.

But the option GOTO-> Translate is not available.

i'm gonna be gratefully for some help.

greetings and good luck.

    Are you trying to translate ZTABL1? This cannot work, as there is no SPRAS field in the key.

    Or ZTABL2?

    This should be the normal scenario:

    ZTAB: Key, Field 1, Field 2, etc.

    ZTABT: Spras, Key, Text (where Key is defined as foreign key to ZTAB and type "Text table")

    Now a maintenance dialog for ZTAB will have translation option. Compare this with your scenario.

      it doesn't work : Can you explain the all step "create a separate maintenance dialog for ZTAB1."

      Or you create a maintenance view ?

      And Have you a foreign key on the field of the key ZTAB1 ?

      Thanks for your help.
