Generation Status

In the Status column in the Fields and Tables block, you can see the current status of every field. The following statuses are available:

  • Green

    This color means that the field or the table has successfully been generated.

  • Yellow

    This color means that you have entered data, but the field or the table has not yet been generated. This status is also used if you edit a field or a table with a green status. After you have edited the field, it is still inactive. You need to save and generate your data to apply your changes.

  • Red

    This color means that the generation of the field or table has failed. For further information, choose the icon or the hyperlink in the Enhancement ID column.

Note Note

The Manual Field link in the Enhancement ID column in the Fields block indicates that the field has been enhanced by using the Easy Enhancement Workbench. Or it has been manually added to the ABAP Dictionary in SAP GUI by using transaction SE11. You cannot edit this field because it has not been created with the Application Enhancement Tool. However, you can migrate it to the format of the Application Enhancement Tool and then edit it. For more information, see Migration of Manual Fields.

End of the note.
