    Both table type and standard table type are used for internal table creation but with 'type standard table of' we can only refer standard table like vbak, vbap etc. whereas 'type table of' refers customised tables that we creating by taking some selected fields of stanardard table(s).

    Table type are use create work area where as standard table table type means creates structure and work area both.

    Both the Type Table and Type Standard Table statements are used to get same Standard Internal table because in case if we don't specify the table type, the SAP ABAP system by default takes it as a Standard table.

    Therefore If the user wants the table to be Sorted type then declaration will be done via using the command below:

    Data : itab type sorted/hashed table of <type>.
