Introduction

After working with SAP for more than 15 years and travelling across the Globe for SAP Projects one issue I always use to have how can I keep track of all the SAP Tables associated with different Modules. If you are working as a SAP ABAP Consultant you need to keep the name of tables in your Fingertips. Sometimes this you know from other Experts and sometimes you have to dig it out. After exploring I found a very easy way to dig out the SAP tables associated with a Business Process Area. Just check this blog and conquer the SAP world.

SAP is just like an ocean and every droplet is like one SAP Table. How to find the relevant SAP Tables for a process without knowing anything.

 

Solution

Go To  Transaction Code SE16T and execute for Find Table option as highlighted below

Now you get the below screen

Now enter the Business Process Name. In my case I want to know Table name for Cost Center

We got all the relevant table so easily.

Conclusion

Using this Tutorial anyone can find the tables related with any process. Sky is the Limit My Friends

      Hi Arghadip,

       

      Amazing articles.

      I tried to execute SE16T and ended up getting the below message.

      Error "Transaction SE16T is unknown - Message no. 00031"

      Tried the program *SAPLSE16T* , still no go

      Program SAPLSE16T does not exist

       

      Appreciate your inputs.

       

      Sincerely,

      Sujith

      The Obsession with Transaction codes based implementation methodology means that we have sacrificed a Process oriented iimplementation to a TC code
      Hammering" of he Process down the throat of the client leading to so many failed implementations.

      New SAP consultants think that SAP is all about TC and not its traditional integration and process orientation -sad situation indeed

      By using this method, you'll will get the view. Using se11 you can see which tables it's made from.

      Now you got a functional guy intrigued! I don't have access to SE16T, can someone please post the program name for it? I can perhaps bypass the access restrictions using SE38/SA38. Thanks in advance! Nice article, thank you!

      That's very useful, but it clearly doesn't exist on older boxes. I can see it on a S4/Hana 1610 system but not our older ECC systems, even relatively recent ones.

      When and where did the tcode arrive?

      This is helpful. It Will definitely saves development type by looking into just the details in a smarter way. I believed there are many SAP tools that are helpful but not being explored or being share about their capabilities in optimizing our daily work. thanks for sharing.
