Procedure documentation Specifying Table Keys Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

Use

In the request editor, you can use the object list to edit one or more table lines in a specified table. You first specify the table (tabu) or a generic transport object (tdat, vdat, cdat), and then edit the individual key fields.

Note

You do not normally need to specify table keys manually, since the Transport Organizer automatically records the correct table entries when you make changes.

Prerequisites

You have chosen the Objects tab page in the request editor and have the authorization to edit the object list.

Procedure

To specify the keys of a table or generic transport object, proceed as follows:

...

       1.      Choose Display <-> Change.

       2.      To create a new list entry, enter the required values in the fields Program ID and Object Type. Input help is available.

       3.      Enter the name of the transport object in the Object Name column and choose Enter. The Object with Keys symbol appears in the Function column.

       4.      To specify the key fields of the object, choose Object with Keys.  The key editor for the object appears.

Note

Generic transport objects have additional fields in the key editor, which you can also specify. However, you do not normally need to do this.

       5.      Double-click an empty line in the editor to display the dialog box Change Key Fields for Table <table name>. This dialog box lists the individual key fields of the object, and you can specify the key fields that you want to transport.

Note

If the key ends with an asterisk (*), all keys that match up to the asterisk are specified. If the key description contains more than one asterisk, the initial asterisks are interpreted as characters.

Example

000Dabc* specifies all keys that start with 000Dabc.

000Dabc** specifies all keys that start with 000Dabc*.

       6.      Choose Continue. You entries appear as a concatenated key in the key list editor.

To change the keys of tables or generic transport objects that are already in the object list, proceed as follows:

...

       1.      Choose Display <-> Change.

       2.      Double-click to select a table (tabu) or a generic transport object (tdat, vdat, cdat).

The key list editor for the object appears. The fields needed to specify the key of the object appear. The table key is a concatenated version of the key elements.

       3.      Double-click the table key to display the dialog box Change Key Fields for Table <table name>. The table key is now split into the elements of the individual key fields.

       4.      Enter your data and choose Continue. The changes are copied to the concatenated key.

Result

You have specified or changed one or more table lines at the key level.
