Finding table behind structure

Finding table behind structure

Finding table behind structure

(OP)
Hi, I'm exporting data and keep getting stuck when I run into a structure field.  My process is to right-click on the field in question, select 'help' and click the tool icon.  Most of the data is in known tables which I can export normally.  But often the field is in a structure and I can't export it from SE16.  I can click on the table name and hit the Navigate button.  After that I can make guesses as to what tables are used but I can't be always be sure I'm getting what I want.  Any tips?

Thanks

Mike

RE: Finding table behind structure

I haven't found a 100% method and the one I use isn't easy.
I double-click on a data element.  One that is rather unique to the data that you are looking for.  Then on that data element, I do a where used.  Usually more files that I want appear, but I just weed through the listed files and most of the time find the one I'm looking for.

Hope it helps.
