The extended table maintenance maintenance dialog provides the possibility of processing table data in a consistent maintenance dialog, independently of whether access is to be made directly via the table or via a view defined in the dictionary.

Integrating the maintenance dialog into user developments offers simplified access to table contents, and has the following advantages, among others:

  • The programming effort is considerably reduced.
  • The operation is consistent, comprehensible and convenient.

The convenience is produced by comprehensive operating functionality, which guarantees the comprehensibility and transparency of the maintenance procedures.

The maintenance dialog also allows table data to be viewed on two levels. You can branch from an overview screen to a detail screen for a selected record.

The maintenance dialog can be used in its entirety as a standard maintenance dialog, or table or view-specific modifications can be made.
