Fields in tables


It would be great if some one can help on this issue.

In some of the tables i have observed that the number of fields during the display and table fields are different.

Ex: table:T591A. (which is having 5 fields including client but during display it has total 6 fields).

Can you suggest wht would be the reason for the same.

    The 6th field u're seeing is the description: this field is automatically got if the table has an own text table.

    The table T591A has the table T591S as text table.

    In SE11 go to: Go to->Text table

      SAP is multi-language: if you insert the description in the same master table, it can't translate it.

      If you check the text table, this table has the language as key field: in this way u can store different descriptions for all languages set in your system: for example 1 for english, 1 for italian,......

      When u run trx SE16 for master table the system shows the description field too and it gets the record of logon langauge.
