Not authorized to change my own table

Hello experts,

Iu2019m trying to make a check table for main table but having problem when I tries to enter data. When I try to add entries though Utilities -> Table Contents -> Create Entries I got the following error.

u2018You are not authorized to change this tableu2019. However Iu2019ve made this table.

Can anybody think off what can possibly be wrong?

Thanks a lot in advance.

    Thanks everbody specially Qiang & Mark for your input. Yes I ran SU53 transaction and looks like i dont have the access. Exactly what you guys told me. I just see the following objects after I ran SU53. Just curious what does this means?

    The following authorization object was checked:

    Object S_CTS_ADMI Administration Functions in the Change and Transport System

    Object class BC_A Basis: Administration

    Field Value

    Administration tasks for Change and Transport System

    TABL

    Available authorizations for the object in the master record:

      Object        S_CTS_ADMI Administration Functions in the Change and Transport System  
      Object class  BC_A       Basis: Administration                                                                                
      Field     Value                                                                                
      Administration tasks for Change and Transport System                         
      TABL

      I'm a little surprised there - is this what SU53 shows directly after you have been refused access to the "create new entries"? I debugged it in my system and the objects checked are S_TABU_DIS / S_TABU_CLI and S_DEVELOP. Keep in mind that you must run SU53 immediately after getting an authorization error.

      Rgds,

    Hi,

    Can you check the Table Maintenance Status of the Table in the TX: SE11. If the Table Maintenance - Allowed is not se, then you can't make changes to the tables using the create entries. Change the Status to table maintenance Allowed.

    Hope this will help.

    Thanks,

    Samantak.

    Thanks for you input Samantak Chatte. Yes I already made sure that Data Browser/Table view Maint. is selected to Display/Maintenance Allowed. Really not sure what is causing the problem.

    When the message appear, use t-code: su53 to check which authority object prevent you to perform the operation.

    Hi,

    You are not authorized to change this tableu2019. However Iu2019ve made this table.

    This is perfectly plausible. A developer might have the authority to create/edit tables in SE11 but not to populate them with data via SM30/SE16. Table data maintenance is controlled by specific authorization objects, S_TABU_CLI and S_TABU_DIS. As Qiang Sheng has pointed out in his reply, SU53 will reveal exactly what authority you are missing.

    Rgds,

    Mark
