Archiving custom(z) table or changing standard se16 screen

Hi Abapers,

My requirement is i need a selection screen1 to enter the z table name, when i select the table and execute on screen1, it should direct me to the selection screen2 which contains the key fields of the table mentioned as a selection screen elements. Then i enter the key field values and execute the 2nd selection screen, it should archive the records corresponding to the mentioned selection criteria. Could you please tell me the idea to achieve the same.

The solutions i am thinking of are

1. to enhance the se16 screen(where the same sequence of screens come) by adding a button to archive. If this is possible how do i can do this??

2. By creating from scratch by creating a report, in this case i am struck with the dynamic selection screen creation.

Your suggestion/help is very much in need.

    Hi Shruthi,

    I don't think we can have a generic transaction to archive Ztable records. May be in case if you wanna delete you can do so, but since archived records needs to be stored somewhere you may need to create several tables that holds the archived data.

      Hi Karthik,

      Creating tables is fine from memory point of view, Is there any other concerns apart from that?

      As per my understanding data has to be saved either in one of the tables so that it doesnot makes much difference. Is my understandings correct?
