Many SAP Training students find it a little difficult to initially understand database tables. Here is a quick tutorial on how to view the contents of a database table in SAP. Use Transaction code [ SE16 ] or use the menu path
SAP Easy Access -> Tools -> ABAP Workbench -> Overview -> SE16 Data Browser
Enter the SAP Database table of your choice and hit enter.
The initial screen will show the fields for selection. All the fields in the database are not shown. If you want to see more fields in the initial data browser field selection screen, goto Settings -> Fields for Selection and choose the fields.
You can double select each of the fields in the subsequent screen to view more on the details of the entries.
