Table Edit without SM30 or Maintenance Dialog
We all know you can edit table contents in SM30, but did you know you can also edit table contents in SE16N?
–> execute transaction SE16N
–> enter table name and press enter
–> Type &SAP_EDIT into the transaction code field, you will then receive a confirmation “SAP editing function is activated”
–> NOTE this is a much more powerful method of table editing as one is able to even edit tables which do not have a maintenance dialog for example KNVV (Customer Master – Sales area data.) – Therefore use with extreme caution.
–> NOTE when this table edit mode is used no changes are recorded against the user ID. Therefore in the customer master VD02 it will show the field as not having been changed.
