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.

Value Table:
Always Value table means table which contain the all
possible existing value for that field(key).It refers to F4
functionality. Usually we will create any value table
whenever we are creating the key's domain.

Check Table:
The name itself is defines that it is the table which is
giving the check function when the foreign key is populated
with some value.
I mean to say that at the time you are populating elements
into the foreign key table at that time
ex: foreign key [ ]
you entered some value in above field and pressed ENTER
key on key board then system automatically excutes the
select statement on the existing check table, in order to
know whether this key's entry exist in the check table or
So here the check table means the reference for comparision.

And foreign key table means referee which is asking for
