    Hi Vignesh,

    This is rather easy. RECNROOT always refers to the RECN field of the uppermost table.

    Two examples:

    * ESTRH - ESTVH - ESTVA

    ESTRH-RECN = ESTRH-RECNROOT

    ESTVH-RECNROOT = ESTRH-RECN

    ESTVA-RECNROOT = ESTRH-RECN

    ESTVA-RECNTVH = ESTVH-RECN

    Same logic goes further for tables ESTVP, ESTDU, .... which are all linked to table ESTVP

    ESTVP-RECNROOT = ESTRH-RECN

    ESTVP-RECNTVA = ESTVA-RECN

    ESTVP-RECNCOMP = estrh-recn of ingredient

    ESTDU-RECNROOT = ESTRH-RECN

    ESTDU-RECNMST = ESTVA-RECN (in case you check the usage of a value assignment instance)

    * ESTPH - ESTPP

    ESTPH-RECN = ESTPH-RECNROOT

    ESTPP-RECNROOT = ESTPH-RECN

    ... and so on.

    I hope this helps you further in discovering the EHS tables.

    Kind regards,

    Luk
