    Table types are used to define the structure and data type attributes of a line of the internal table in SAP ABAP. It has an option for managing and accessing the data in the internal table.

    Structures are the data objects made up of various components of any data type which are stored one after the other in the memory.These structures are very useful in order to painting screen fields and also for manipulating data that has a consistent format defined by a discrete number of fields.
