Link from Variant table to Database table

  • Link, field assignment, and activation in structure maintenance (CU61)
  • Transfer variant table contents to database table with CU59 (report RCCUVTDB)
  • Variant tables cannot be mapped to database tables if:
    • Interval values
    • More than one value per table line
    • Engineering change management
  • Example of database link: Variant table Database table Client Char_1 --> Char_1 Char_2 --> Char_2
  • All database tables in the SAP System can be addressed

Authorization Objects

  • C_LOVC_TAB Variant table - structure
  • C_LOVC_TCN Variant table - contents
