Brief scenario of check table / value table?..

Answer / guest

Value Table - This is maintained at Domain Level.

When ever you create a domain , you can entered allowed
values. For example you go to Domain SHKZG -
Debit/credit indicator. Here only allowed values is H or
S. When ever you use this Domain, the system will force you
to enter only these values. This is a sort of master
check . To be maintained as a customization object. This
mean that if you want to enter values to this table you
have to create a development request & transport the same.

Check table - For example you have Employee master table &
Employee Transaction table.

When ever an employee Transacts we need to check whether
that employee exists , so we can refer to the employee
master table. This is nothing but a Parent & Child
relationship . Here data can be maintained at client
level , no development involved. As per DBMS what we call
foregin key table, is called as check table in SAP.

functionality. Usually we will create any value table
