Modify content of any table in SAP

Introduction

SAP provides ABAP developers with SE16N_INTERFACE function module to update content of any table in SAP.

Keep in mind it’s usualy not a safe approach to update database table directly on database.

Explanation

So, how it’s actually done? Well, follow below steps:

  1. Execute SE37 tcode
  2. Run FM: SE16N_INTERFACE
  3. Provide I_TAB with table name and mark I_EDIT and I_SAPEDIT parameters
    se16n_interface_1
  4. Once you execute the FM you should classic SN16N interface with additional toolbar allowing you to modify content of the table.
    se16n_interface_2

Voila! You can now modify data of your db table.
