Activate &SAP_EDIT in SE16N

Function code “&SAP_EDIT” can be used to enable maintain entries functionality of SAP table. &SAP_EDIT will not work if SAP note 1420281 is implemented.

Before implementing the SAP note 1420281, the program used to call a subroutine where it sets the variables GD-EDIT and GD-SAPEDIT to ‘X’ if the function code is &SAP_EDIT.

After implementing SAP note 1420281, the call to subroutine is removed when function code is &SAP_EDIT.

In order to edit table entries in SE16N even if &SAP_EDIT is disabled follow the below steps.

1. Open the table that you want to edit in SE16N and enter the function code ‘/H’ to switch on the debugger. In this example let us open table KNA1 and switch on the debugger.

3. In the debugger set the values of GD-EDIT and GD-SAPEDIT to ‘X’ and press F8.
