I am new with ABAP programming. I am finding too difficult to find out specific field and table containing that field in SAP. Please suggest me the easy way to get table and field name when I only know the data which I want to extract from.

    Hello Anand!

    Find a transaction that displays the data your're looking for.

    F1 and Button 'Technical Information' in the field will lead you to the technical field information.

    In box 'field data' there's an entry showing the data element. Double-click on the data-element to navigate to the dictionary.

    Most programmers use the identical Data element, that is used for storing the field in a table, also for the structures that display field data on the screens. So, in data dictionary viewing your data element you can use Button 'Where-used-list' to search for usage of your data element in table fields.

    In the hint list, double-click will navigate to data dictionary showing the selected table. Here, verify if your entry is physically stored in the table with 'Utilities -> Table contents -> display' (or directly via SE16)

    greetinx, Kathrin!
