How to Create Table Maintenance Generator?

Go to SE11, give the table name and click on change. Then Go to utilities--> Table maintenance generator.

In the Table maintenance generator (TMG) screen, we should give Authorization Group, Function Group name (Function Group name can be same as table name), Maintenance type can be one step or two step, usually we will create with one step. we should give maintenance screen number. After clicking on create button, a table maintenance generator will be created.

To check it go to SM30 . In SM30, we find display, Maintain options.

We can view the table contents by choosing Display and we can create table entries by choosing Maintain.

    Hi Vivek,

    If you dont want the user to maintain the table contents, or if you dont to create entires and maintain the same using Data Browser (SE16) you can set the display maintainance not allowed. With this you can maintain data in the table consistently.

    You use the table maintainance generator to maintain the data using the SAP Generated Function Modules. You need to take care of the SAP Locking mechanism to Create Update and Delete entries in the Table. Through Table Maintainance Generator you can achieve all of these.
